Radiation May Top Limit in Areas 30km beyond Fukushima Plant

Washington, April 20 (Jiji Press)--The Department of Energy has said that areas beyond 30 kilometers northwest of the stricken nuclear power station in Japan's Fukushima Prefecture are estimated to see doses of radiation exceeding the level set by the Japanese government for evacuation.

Annual cumulative radiation exposure to people in the areas would reach over 20 millisieverts, according to projections made by the department.

Japan has set the 20-millisievert target for part of areas outside a 30-kilometer radius of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, where residents have been advised to be prepared to evacuate.

Radioactive substances continue leaking from the Tokyo Electric Power Co. <9501> plant, which was damaged by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami that hit northeastern Japan.

People are likely to absorb a cumulative dose of between one and 5 millisieverts if they stay in locations within the U.S. government-set evacuation zone of 80 kilometers from the nuclear plant for one year, the department said.

Evacuation zone may have to be widened to at least 50km from the plant, but Japanese gov barely managed to impose no-entry zone of 20km radius so far.

Any estimates of how many people the 50km zone displaces...( beyond those already displaced from the tsunami?)

Also, have you see any articles about comparing this radiation danger to what was done in Hiroshima and Nagasaki as far as restricting access?
