    inititally.  The Asahi Shimbun website has just reported (Japanese Language)that the area around Number 1 Fukushima nuclear power station has a background radiation level about eight times normal.  They have increased the evacuation radius from 3km to 10 km.  Let us hope that this doesn't get any worse.
