20 μSv/h still detected in Fukushima city


 It went over scale of the ordinary dosimeter tested by Ministry of the Environment.

A citizen’s group on the look out for hotspots finds over 20 uSv/h spikes in a park, frequented by children and joggers, in Watari, Fukushima shi, by the Abukuma riverbed. 5 years into the crisis, hotspots can be found aplenty.

Putting aside the many hotspots as seen in the following video, the average measurement across the park remains 0.5 uSv/h. That does not deter the nearby High School to send off students for a little run … in areas close to 1 uSv/h.

As the brave residents recorded a nearby hotspot of more than 20 uSv/h, a mother could be seen in the same vicinity, playing in the grass with her small child.
