Enlarged 50-mile evacuation zone by US was because of spent fuel pools, not reactor meltdowns: NRC official

The NRC also had “suspicions” about the conditions of the spent fuel pools, Borchardt said… Based on that assumption, he said, the NRC recommended that U.S. residents in Japan stay 80 km away . . . → Read More: Enlarged 50-mile evacuation zone by US was because of spent fuel pools, not reactor meltdowns: NRC official
