The Failure At Fukushima City

In the early days of the disaster we saw increasing radiation levels 60km away in Fukushima City.

March 26 = 4.15 uSv
March 25 = 3.98 uSv
March 24 =  4.92 uSv
March 23 =   6.85 uSv
March 21 =  7.51 uSv
March 17 = .012 mSv/h 

By comparison a rate of .5 uSv/h required evacuation after Chernobyl.

Fukushima City has never been evacuated.  The city has over 290,000 people. There has been speculation that the size of the city had something to do with why it was not evacuated. Greenpeace has continued to document high radiation levels and hot spots in Fukushima City.

By June radiation began showing up in the urine of children from Fukushima City. As of September of 2011 radiation was continuing to show up in the urine of children from Fukushima City indicating ongoing contamination, possibly from their food sources.  Many parks in Fukushima City were also showing highly contaminated to the point the city began posting warnings. Indoor playgrounds have been added in Fukushima City and schools are being given instructions on how to lower exposure levels for when children are outside.
