Oh, sry my mistake thanks you for correct my ..
Millisievert (1 mSv = 0.001 Sv)
microsievert (1 μSv = 0.000001 Sv)
I only want to inform, here is links for radiations news ..
Is 383.000 uSv/h = 0.383 Sv7h x 24 h = 9.192 Sv/day
Symptoms of acute radiation (dose received within one day):
0 – 0.25 Sv (0 – 250 mSv): None
0.25 – 1 Sv (250 – 1000 mSv): Some people feel nausea and loss of appetite; bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen damaged.
1 – 3 Sv (1000 – 3000 mSv): Mild to severe nausea, loss of appetite, infection; more severe bone marrow, lymph node, spleen damage; recovery probable, not assured.
3 – 6 Sv (3000 – 6000 mSv): Severe nausea, loss of appetite; hemorrhaging, infection, diarrhea, peeling of skin, sterility; death if untreated.
6 – 10 Sv (6000 – 10000 mSv): Above symptoms plus central nervous system impairment; death expected.
Above 10 Sv (10000 mSv): Incapacitation and death.

No problem, just wanted to clear up any misconception people may have about the levels of radioactivity.
no doubt 325mSv/h is a big dose and you wouldn't want to be around it long at all, even in protective gear but its a long way from 325 Sv/h. It must be remembered this is a reading from the reator 4 building and drops exponentially as you move away from the source. extra DIV
