Radiological Activity in Japan
|March 17, 2011|
The Fukushima Daiichi and Daini Nuclear Power Stations continue to have problems with their cooling systems as a result of the earthquake and tsunami that hit the north east coast of Japan on March 11, 2011.
The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control is working with Federal, Provincial and Pacific Northwest partners to closely monitor this situation, including radiation levels, as a result of this terrible tragedy. Radiation monitoring stations are in place along the entire West Coast of North America including Alaska, British Columbia and Washington State.
