Mr. Idogawa, Mayor of Futaba Town where Fukushima Daiichi located testified about the day of Unit 1′s explosion. Japanese government did not announce SPEEDI data, so Futaba’s citizens evacuated to northwest where radiation drifted. Many citizens of Futaba were exposed to radiation including children. Senator Masako Mori severely questioned to Prime Minister Noda about Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant’s accident.
At 6:45 in
Katsutaka Idogawa, Mayor of Futaba Town: Some say its safer than Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but I’ve never agreed with them.
We didn’t have to be exposed but we were. How can people without exposure understand us?
I felt so on March 12.
After most citizens evacuated, I evacuated, too.
I didn’t know still some people remained in the town.
One of them told me “My hair fell off” with tears in her eyes.
I’m so sorry for them still.
