Radioactive emissions recorded at another plant in Japan – NPP 'Tsuruga'. NPP 'Tsuruga' is in Fukui Prefecture, located in the western part of Honshu Island in the Sea of Japan. Russian Scientists have discovered the isotopes of cesium in sea water and air in the Pacific Ocean approximately 400 kilometers from the nuclear power plant emergency "Fukushima-1 '. The content of cesium-137 and cesium-134 in surface sea water, and at a depth of 50 meters is about 20 becquerels per cubic meter. At a depth of 100 meters level drops to 6 becquerels per cubic meter, at depths of 150 and 250 meters of man-made radionuclides were detected. Meanwhile, the radiation background in the Far East, the measurements that after the accident at Japanese nuclear power plants are conducted around the clock, is normal.

In addition, even after two months in Japan continue to be felt echoes of the devastating earthquake of March. In the north-eastern Japan Earthquake of magnitude 6.2, and about the Japanese island of Honshu earthquake of magnitude 5.8. Force of the tremors experts estimate five to six magnitude on the Richter scale. The threat of a tsunami has not been announced, but coastal residents warned of the possible occurrence of high waves. Recall that hit Japan on March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami were the most horrific in its disastrous consequences for the last 88 years. The largest in Japan over the past two centuries is an earthquake in Kanto, which occurred in 1923. His victims included 105 000 people.
