Fukushima Update

When the Fukushima earthquake and Tsunami happened in 2011 1,607 people died. Since then the Japanese authorities believe that more than 1,656 people have died as a result of the stress, tension, disease and problems that they have suffered as a result of the nuclear accident. 136,000 people are still displaced; some of them are searching for a permanent home in Fukushima alone.

Meanwhile we are assured by the Tokyo Electric Power Company that none of the 100 tons of extremely contaminated radioactive water that had leaked from a storage tank at Fukushima will reach the Pacific Ocean.
