[Video] 20 μSv/h still detected in Fukushima city

On 4/23/2015, a citizen’s group detected 20.1 μSv/h in Fukushima city. It was in the river area of Abukuma-gawa river, where is open for everyone as a park.

It was over scale of the dosimeter tested by Ministry of the Environment so the radiation level was confirmed by scintillation survey meter TCS-172B.

From their record, the radiation level was over 0.5 μSv/h in many places of the area but it even spikes up at hotspots.


It is not prohibited to enter this area. Students and mothers with children play and jog in this park.

[Vidéo] On relève toujours du 20 μSv/h dans la ville de Fukushima


Le 23 juillet 2015, un groupe d’habitants a relevé 20,1 μSv/h dans la ville de Fukushima. C’est près de la zone du fleuve Abukuma-gawa qui est ouverte à tous en tant que parc.

Ça dépassait les limites d’échelle des dosimètres fournis par le ministère de l’Environnement donc la radioactivité a été confirmée avec un TCS-172B, un compteur à scintillation de terrain.
Selon leur relevé, le niveau de radioactivité était au-dessus de 0,5 μSv/h en beaucoup d’endroits du coin et elle est même montée aussi haut que dans les points chauds.

Il n’est pas interdit d’entrer dans cette zone. Des élèves et des mères avec leurs enfants jouent et courent dans ce parc.

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.
