Biggest radiation dose outside Fukushima zone -report

Published 9:15 PM, 13 Dec 2011
TOKYO, Dec 13 - Residents outside the Fukushima exclusion zone were likely most exposed to radiation in the four months after the nuclear plant was wrecked by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, the local government said on Tuesday.
Their exposure of 19 millisieverts is just below the annual limit set by an international nuclear safety body, it said.
The greatest exposure was in the town of Iitate, where residents were allowed to take their time to leave, located 40 km (25 miles) northwest of the plant and outside the 20 km evacuation zone imposed by the government.

ok, so let's put this into perspective......
1. the radiation continues.. and how old is the data?
2. 20 um/sv is the highest rating for not the general public, but a nuclear emergency worker... remember.. the safe dose was and should still be 1 um/sv...
wait till we here from tokyo again......
number 4 wall in trouble with the spent fuel sitting on top?... last nail in the coffin...
