The areas surrounding the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in northeastern Japan may be uninhabitable for decades. That’s the word from the Japanese government after a survey found dangerously high levels of radioactive contamination.
RDTN.org is a site set up by a group of Oregonians to give average citizens the power to monitor the radiation levels in Japan. Citizens across the country are submitting their reading off of their radiation measuring devices to this website. While it relies on the accuracy of each person, the data is very interesting.
