Friends on RADSAFE, is there any credibility to this claim or is it
just more anti-nuclear hype being spread by so-called "nuclear news"
that only posts anti-nuclear "news and conjecture" and ignores
anything that does not agree with nuclear power being the potential
end of life as we know it?

Cesium near Fukushima now 10 times higher than previous highest measurement

by Christina MacPherson

Over 1,000,000 Bq/kg of cesium near Fukushima plant — 10 times higher
than highest measurement in prior soil survey
  January 12th, 2013
 Environment Ministry’s radioactive monitoring in Fukushima with summary
translation by Fukushima Diary:
Soil sampled on Oct. 25, 2012 from beside an reservoir in Okuma

Cs-134 : 400,000 becquerels per kilogram (Bq/kg)
Cs-137 : 650,000 Bq/kg
Combined Cs-134, -137: 1,050,000 Bq/kg
Nikkei’s report on the monitoring says the highest t reading was 96,000
Bq/kg of Cs-134 and -137 during last summer’s research, detected in soil
from a reservoir in Namie.
