An aerial radiation survey of the capital and Kanagawa Prefecture has revealed the northwest tip of Tokyo was tainted by an unusually high amount of fallout, while most other areas showed normal levels, a science ministry official said Friday.
The results, released late Thursday, show that fallout from Fukushima power plant contaminated part of the mountainous Okutama region on Tokyo's western fringe. Radiation readings in the area were the highest of the two prefectures at 100,000 to 300,000 becquerels of radioactive cesium per square meter.
Fukushima radiation plumes mapped and color coded. Visual map showing ground water radiation contamination levels are very unsafe in Fukushima. High levels now spread to adjacent areas including Tokyo's watershed:
- Fukushima - red hot
- Tokyo (watershed area)
- Chiba (watershed area)
- Gumma (S border of Fukushima)
- Ibaraki (S border of Fukushima)
- Miyagi (N border of Fukushima)
- Tochigi (S border of Fukushima)
