  • High levels of radiation found in rivers of Fukushima

    In the North of the Prefecture, the levels of radioactive caesium were 3,200 becquerelios per kilogram in the Lolita River in Iitate. Levels in the River in the province of Soma, further down in the channel, were 13,000 becquerelios.

    In this way, the levels in the upper part of the River fell to one-fifth of those observed in may, but those present in the lower area of the River tripled. The levels of radioactive caesium near the mouth of the Mano River, also in Soma, doubled since may, according to Office of Europa Press.
