On 12/5/2015, a citizen’s radiation measurement station “Fujimiiru” announced they detected 62.5 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 from the dust sample in Osaka.

The sampling date was July 2013. The sampling location was nearby JR Nishikujo station.

The dust was accumulated in the street gutter in 100m area from the station.

Cs-134 density was 20.0 Bq/Kg, Cs-137 density was 42.5 Bq/Kg.

Disaster debris was incinerated at a plant situated at 8km from the sampling location from February of 2013.

The connection is not identified.

Le 5 décembre 2015, la station privée de surveillance de la radioactivité “Fujimiiru” a annoncé avoir relevé 62,5 Bq/kg de césium 134/137 dans un échantillon de poussières à Osaka.

L’échantillon date de juillet 2013. Il a été pris près de la gare de Nishikujo de JR.
La poussière était accumulée dans un caniveau à 100 m de la gare.
La radioactivité en Cs-134 est de 20,0 Bq/kg, celle du Cs-137 de 42,5 Bq/kg.
A partir de février 2013; des débris de la catastrophe ont été incinérés par une usine située à 8 km de l’endroit échantillonné.

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.
