According to CNN’s article, Tens of thousands of evacuees can’t head home for months, the radioactive isotope cesium has been found in the sea at levels 527 times the regulatory limit. Also, mentioned was the fact that radioactive iodine-131 also reached the ocean. Samples taken Wednesday 330 meters into the Pacific Ocean showed levels 4,385 times above the regulatory limit. This exceeded the previous day’s reading of 3,355 times over the standard, and was an exponential spike over the 104-times increase seen since just last Friday.
Officials have downplayed the potential perils posed by the radioactive iodine, since it loses half of its radiation every eight days. All fishing is banned within 20 kilometers (12 miles) of the plant, and Hidehiko Nishiyama of Japan’s nuclear safety agency adds that such waterborne radiation should dilute over time.
