  • The Prometheus Trap / Men in Protective Clothing-2: Radiation information did not make it to residents

    On March 13, after the 25 people had left the Kanno's home, the majority of evacuees still remained in the Tsushima district.

    At 5:44 a.m. on March 12, the evacuation order was expanded to cover a radius of 10 kilometers from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant. After the hydrogen explosion at the No. 1 nuclear reactor, the evacuation order was widened to 20 km at 6:25 p.m.

    However, at a news conference on the evening of March 12, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said, "There will be no leakage of radioactive material in a large quantity. Persons in areas outside of the 20-km radius will not be affected."
