Evacuation zone around Fukushima nuclear plant is extended
Issued on: Modified:
The evacuation zone around the Fukushima nuclear plant was originally set at a radius of 20km. But fears of radiation are such that the authorities are increasing that to 30km. They've also ordered the evacuation of five cities outside the official exclusion zone and as of Thursday, it's illegal to set foot within the 20km surrounding Fukushima.
