U.S. says safe to use Sendai Airport, Kyodo, July 20, 2011:
[...] Washington maintained its evacuation advisory for Americans living within an 80-kilometer radius of the stricken nuclear plant in northeastern Japan.
“Out of an abundance of caution, we continue to recommend that U.S. citizens avoid travel to destinations within the 50-mile evacuation zone of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. U.S. citizens who are still within this zone should evacuate or shelter in place,” the statement said.
