Mon Mar 14 2011 (Updated 04/01/11)Nuclear Disaster in Japan After Earthquake and Tsunami
Mon Mar 14 2011 (Updated 04/01/11)Californians Ask of Japan's Nuclear Disaster, "Could it Happen Here?"
Weeks after a giant tsunami engulfed Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co. is still struggling to bring the radiation crisis under control. Radiation has seeped into the soil and seawater and made its way into produce, raw milk and tap water. The Japanese government has admitted that its safeguards were insufficient to protect the nuclear plant. Radiation levels have increased in 15 US states from the nuclear disaster in Japan.
A disaster scenario continues to rock Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex, following the unprecedented 9.0 earthquake and mega tsunami near Sendai on March 11. Over five thousand miles away, Californians are feeling the fallout of Japan's tragedy. A tsunami triggered by the natural disaster caused the death of one Californian, an estimated $50 million in damage, and spillage of fuels and other pollutants in the seaside towns of Santa Cruz and Crescent City. The devastating events have Californians wondering if their own coastal nuclear power planets are safe, causing a wave of political debate to unfurl.
