Fukushima supermarket shelves show signs of crisis
Issued on: Modified:
They've survived an earthquake, a tsunami and so far, a nuclear disaster. But for the people living near the stricken Fukushima power plant, it's just the start. Their local supermarkets are now running out of basic products, with many locally sourced items such as vegetables banned altogether from fears of radiation. Fish and tapwater has also been contaminated, with the affected area reaching as far away as Tokyo, 220km to the south.
