Nuclear crisis info to be put on Web
Yomiuri -- Feb 11
The Nuclear Regulation Authority plans to digitize about 900,000 pages of documents related to the Fukushima nuclear crisis, with an eye to making them publicly available online in about two years, it has been learned.
According to NRA officials, some of the material has not been released before, and includes radioactivity monitoring results, how people were irradiated and evacuation plans worked out by local governments.
The project is intended to bring together--and make accessible--the masses of documents stored by ministries and agencies on the crisis at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.
