Kashiwa govt wants help with hotspot, Daily Yomiuri, October 28, 2011:
“A radiation hotspot in Kashiwa has still not been decontaminated a week after radiation of 57.5 microsieverts per hour was recorded,” reports The Daily Yomiuri.
The city says it cannot handle such a high level of radiation on its own.
“After the outbreak of the nuclear crisis, clouds containing cesium spread over a widespread area, causing relatively high levels of radiation at many locations in the Tokyo metropolitan area,” explained Yomiuri.
