Contamination 330 kms south west of Daichi plant!
Radioactive material above designated safety limits has been detected in tea leaves harvested in 5 municipalities in Kanagawa Prefecture, neighboring Tokyo.
The prefectural government checked samples of leaves harvested in 15 municipalities in the region. Officials say that samples from 5 of those were found to contain unsafe levels of radioactive cesium.
They say 780 becquerels of cesium were detected in tea leaves in Odawara City, 740 becquerels in Kiyokawa Village, 680 becquerels in Yugawara Town, 670 becquerels in Aikawa Town and 530 becquerels in Manazuru Town.
Damn, this info is really a breaking news to me, not because of the levels (even it there are sufficiently high to make them unsafe!) but BECAUSE OF WHERE THEY HAVE BEEN MEASURED:
KANAGAWA prefecture is south of Tokyo!!!!
I located Odawara on this map for example:
So this is around 330 kms south west of Daichi plant!
Minami Ashigara, also listed in the article, is even further
The scale at which unsafe deposits are falling is enlarging day after day...
