Borough chairman in 7km zone declared not to go home

On 7/4/2014, one of the borough chairmans in Okuma-machi town made the declaration not to go home. The declaration was submitted to Okuma-machi town government.

It’s the district in 7km radius area from Fukushima nuclear plant.

The residents are approx. 200. Atmospheric dose is about 30 μSv/h.


The residents state the reasons are because Japanese government is requesting the town to accept the interim storage facility of the soil removed for decontamination and also they can’t expect the infrastructure to be restored.

(cf, Decontamination soil bags are already starting to be torn in Fukushima [URL])

Un conseiller municipal de la zone des 7 km demande de ne pas y revenir


Le 4 juillet 2014, un des conseillers municipaux d’Okuma-machi a présenté une résolution recommandant de ne pas revenir. La résolution a été soumise au conseil municipal d’Okuma-machi.
Cette commune est dans les 7 km autour de la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima.
Ses habitants sont environ 200. La radioactivité ambiante y tourne autour de 30 μSv/h.

Les habitants affirment que c’est parce que le gouvernement japonais exige que la commune accepte l’infrastructure de stockage provisoire des sols raclés par la décontamination et aussi parce qu’ils ne peuvent pas espérer de remise en état des autres infrastructures. (cf. A Fukushima, les sacs de sol raclé de la décontamination sont déjà déchirés)

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
