Tweet from PR officer at Japan Red Cross: “Landslides and floods are happening in Fukushima” — “Tokyo is crystal clear”



Tokyo is crystal clear now. But landslides and floods are happening in Fukushima. Some family living near the mountains have to evacuate.

What do you mean by Fukushima?
The city, or the prefecture?
Just like "New York" is a city in the much larger state of "New York", Fukushima is a capital in the much larger prefecture of Fukushima.

And that capital is not really close at all to the nuclear plant which is referred to as the Fukushima disaster, here's a map, Fukushima city is NW of the fallout zone:

Ahh, thanks for the education on that, I didn't know Fukushima was like what we call a county here in the uk. From what I can gather from the website Miyagi is also a prefecture and it also says the Fukushima power plant is about 60km away from where the landslides were, so yes it was pretty close but not in fukushima, the city or the prefecture, miyagi is further north. unless of course as I said before there were additional mudslides and floods in this area.

It can't be much further north, it must be a stone's throw away. So we agree it's pretty close.


Look at the location of Fukushima city, it's also 60km away from the the Fukushima power plant, the map I posted shows a 60 km radius line and it's right there. And it's practically in the same direction, North mostly, and a little to the West. So my take is, if it's happening in Southern Miyagi prefecture 60km from the nuclear plant, it's also happening in the Northern Fukushima prefecture on the other side of the prefecture border 60 km from the nuclear plant, so I think it's probably the same general area which straddles the county or prefecture border.
