More Fukushima related news – for California

LOS ANGELES (Jiji Press) — A U.S. institute has said that trace amounts of radioactive cesium-134 emitted from Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant were detected in Pacific waters off the northern California coast.

The radioactive substance was found in water collected at a point about 150 kilometers off Eureka, Calif., in August this year, according to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

It is the first time that a radioactive material from the crippled plant has been detected in waters off the United States.
