Both the central government and the prefecture government knew the SPEEDI radiation predictions yet neither shared this information with local governments.
This caused a number of people to evacuate to or stay in Namie during the worst of the radiation releases from Fukushima Daiichi.
The various agencies involved have all tried to pass blame and responsibility about who had the data and who was responsible for warning local governments and the public about the radiation risk.
It was previously admitted that the Fukushima prefecture government at some point deleted the SPEEDI data for March 11 to 16th though they can’t seem to come up with a consistent story about when or why this was done. To date we have not been made aware of any investigation or forensic data recovery work into the data deletion. The data deletion was already suspicious, with the knowledge that the data involved may be key to possible criminal prosecution raises even more concerns.
