Japan Looks To Extend Evacuation Zone
The crises in Japan continues with focus on the Nuclear Plant in Fukushima. Monitoring the seawater’s level of radioactive material, officials are debating whether to extend the danger zone to a 25 mile radius.
“New readings show radiation levels continue to rise in the ocean outside a leaking nuclear plant in Japan’s northeast, officials said Thursday, as they debated whether to broaden the evacuation zone around the tsunami-damaged facility. Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said it was looking into a report from the U.N. atomic agency about high levels of radiation in the village of Iitate, 25 miles from the plant in Fukushima prefecture.”
