In Chiba Prefecture, Japan found a new point of increased radiation

In Japanese Chiba Prefecture, located in the neighborhood of Tokyo, identified "hot spot" with the level of radiation in excess of the rate of 164 times. Soil samples from the background radiation 57.5 microsieverts per hour at a rate of 0.35 microsieverts per hour were taken in Kashiwa.

Initially, experts have called it unlikely that elevated levels of radiation at the site of the accident at the plant "Fukushima-1", because the soil for analysis was taken from a depth of about 30 centimeters. However, on Saturday expertise soil samples showed elevated radioactive cesium — 276 000 becquerels per kilogram.

In this regard, the Ministry of Science and Technology of Japan stated that eliminate the possibility of the accident at the "Fukushima-1" can not be, as the main radioactive element, thrown outside the station was just cesium. After the events at the nuclear power plant accident in Japan is actively working to identify "hot spots" of radiation and eliminate them, according to ITAR-TASS.
