"Greenpeace said its experts had confirmed radiation levels of up to 10 microsieverts per hour in a village 40 km (25 miles) northwest of the plant. It called for the extension of a 20-km (12-mile) evacuation zone.
"It is clearly not safe for people to remain in Iitate, especially children and pregnant women, when it could mean receiving the maximum allowed annual dose of radiation in only a few days," Greenpeace said in a statement, referring to the village where the radiation reading was taken."
1 millirem per hour. 8.76 rem per year. Keep in mind, maximum permissible dose recommendations for the general population are just a half rem per year. I can't believe there haven't been mandatory evacuations.
