On April 26th Marine Net Shimoda conducted air and sea water tests for radiation and no detectable levels of radiation were found! The sea is safe and the surfers are surfing! Wet suits are required though. The ocean is just 15 degrees. Cold but safe!
And for more good news, the Prime Minister of Japan has asked Hamaoka, a nuclear power station in Shizuoka to shut down. Sadly though, the government does not have the power to order it to close its doors. Power to the people (and the governments that are supposed to represent them)!
UPDATE: Hamaoka Power Plant has been shut down!
