140,000 Being Evacuated Away From Japan Nuclear Plants


“About 140,000 people have so far been evacuated from areas near two Japanese nuclear power plants after Friday’s earthquake, the U.N. atomic watchdog said in a statement citing information from Japanese authorities.

‘Evacuations around both affected nuclear plants have begun,’ the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said.

In a 20-km radius around Fukushima Daiichi an estimated 110,000 people have been evacuated. In a 10-km radius around Fukushima Daini about 30,000 people have been evacuated.

‘Full evacuation measures have not been completed,’ it said.”  Source.
