About 700 people sought medical help after heavy snowfall, which continued the second day in Japan. It was reported on Wednesday in the central fire department, which in the Land of the Rising Sun is also responsible for the elimination of emergency situations.

The heaviest snowfall recorded on the east coast of the Japanese island of Honshu. In particular, in Tottori Prefecture fell 2.5 meters of precipitation, more than double the annual rate for the area. Most parts of the country — from the southern islands of Kyushu and Shikoku to the northern Hokkaido — snow depth varies from 20

Experts: Radioactive water spread out over the ocean for 3 months

French Institute for Nuclear Safety calls for long-term monitoring of the Pacific Ocean off the north-eastern coast of Japan following the radiation leak from the nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1", reports NHK.

Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety, analyzed the impact of the sea by the recent leak of water with high levels of radiation from the reactor number 2. Computer analysis was based on publicly available data.

The analysis showed that as of Monday water contaminated with radioactive substances, spread over areas off the coast of Fukushima and Miyagi prefectures.

The analysis also revealed that the airborne radioactive material

In Voronezh detected radiation from Japan

Sensors Novovoronezh nuclear power plant caught radioactive iodine-131

Sensors Novovoronezh nuclear power plant caught radioactive iodine-131 from Japan. Radioactive particles detected after a regular monthly filter change in the positions of the external monitoring.

According Newsru, for the time that has passed since the accident at the nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1" in Japan, the filter has settled the subtle to the point of error of recording devices, the number of "foreign" isotopes.

According to head of radiation safety NVNPP Alexander Mamatov no real danger these microscopic amounts do not represent the population.

Novovoronezh NPP is located in the Voronezh region

On land and at sea radiation levels above normal in the hundreds or thousands of times

In the area of nuclear power plant accident due to the concentration of radioactive isotopes of iodine and cesium in the water and on land will be expanded area where the food supply is prohibited. Cmozhete whether Pacific once again to deal with human stupidity

The concentration of radioactive iodine in seawater near the Fukushima-1 in 29.8 times higher than normal, the Kyodo news agency reported. Fishing near Fukushima-1 and Fukushima-2 is currently under way, authorities said the prefecture.

Japan Today, referring to the operator's Fukushima-1 company TEPCO, leads more information on the pollution of marine waters. Thus, iodine

Radioactive dust from the emergency nuclear plant Fukushima-1 has reached Iceland

A small amount of radioactive particles being brought, in all probability, with emergency nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1" in Japan, found in Iceland, said on Tuesday, Reuters. "The spread of it (radioactive dust) over the Northern Hemisphere — is a matter of just (a few) days," — said a senior researcher at the Institute for Air Research, Norway Andreas Stohl (Andreas Stohl). The scientist added that the threat to health in Europe in connection with radiation does not arise. Radioactive dust spread from Japan to the east and crossed the Pacific Ocean, North America and the Atlantic Ocean, reaching Iceland. According

With more than 70% of Fukushima radiation has flowed into the ocean

TOKYO, November 16. After the accident at the nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1" in the earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011 in Ocean fell from 70 to 80% of the radioactive isotopes. According to ITAR-TASS, such information, released today at the Congress of the Japan Meteorological Association report, a group of scientists from the Institute of Meteorology, headed by Yasumiti Tanaka.

The scientists analyzed the data and came to the conclusion that to Japan after the bombings on the emergency plant fell to 30% of the radioactive isotopes.

According to Tanaka, emergency NPP is located on the eastern

The situation at the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant is out of control

The situation in the nuclear power plant emergency, "Fukushima-1" on Friday continued to worsen, resulting in the Agency for Nuclear and Industrial Safety of Japan (NISA) raised the level of risk of nuclear accident from the fourth to the fifth of the seven levels on the International Nuclear Event Scale (INES). Also considering building a concrete sarcophagus around the station.

The fact that the situation is out of control and the statement of evidence of independent, third-party experts. As stated on Friday, the head of "Rosatom" Sergey Kiriyenko, the experts do not control the situation in the

In Chicago, flew Radiation from Japan

Traces of radioactive contamination have been found in the plane and the luggage of passengers arriving at the Chicago International Airport in Japan, according to Radio "Mayak" referring to the television station C-PBS.

However, the level of radioactivity recorded is estimated as insignificant. Traces of radiation were found on the clothes of several passengers of the flight, arriving in baggage, as well as the ventilation system aircraft.

The representative of the United States in Chicago aviavlastey Rosemary Andolini said that security officers check passengers all arriving flights and the cabin, using portable dosimeters. However, according to the airport customs officers,

At the nuclear plant Fukushima-1 in Japan to eliminate the consequences of the accident joined the military

Helicopters dump water on the overheated reactors, but on the ground preparing the powerful water cannon. In an emergency order is supplied back energomagistral to repair elektoronasosy and try to run the cooling system. True, simultaneously working in a hurry cut the cable ties on which the operational headquarters received data on the state units. Now it has been restored.

Radiation levels above the emergency station "Fukushima" is such that the helicopter pilots in the air is allowed no more than 40 minutes. According to experts in order to discharge water temperature led to a reduction in the
