May 2012 newspaper published by a Soma City citizens group and translated by EXSKF:

Please be careful!

On the roads and near the side drains by the side walks in Minami Soma City and Soma City, we’ve started to see the black substance that looks like dirt. [...] It has been known to have very high radiation levels [...] Please do not go near it. [...] The survey meter shows 56.3 microsieverts/hour. Young children in particular should pay attention.

It’s noted that the in the same newspaper, they are urging the city’s former residents — particularly mothers with children — to return to the city.
