  • I'm not sure about dangerous but likely uncomfortable for those in the disaster zone.

  • I wouldn't live there at this particular moment. Then again, I couldn't live there since most dependents got sent back to the states.

  • I heard on the news this morning that the Japanese gov't is questioning some of the readings. They are questioning the radiation amounts. They don't think they even have instruments that measure "10,000 times" the normal. They worry there are people putting out information with an agenda. Just go help. Don't hurt them more.

  • I would say the most safe places to be are, Osaka and Okinawa...

  • Ohh and I think Tokyo MIGHT be safe.... But there are too many questions and not enough concrete data to confirm as 100% safe.. Evacuated?? To where? Japan a series of Islands the size of Montana... It's not that easy.
