- Updated radioactivity graphs, compiled from various monitors - decreasing steadily after spikes caused by venting / explosions / fires. Although a couple have shown slight increases (no where near previous spikes), probably due to the inland-blowing wind and rain.
- IAEA update (20 March) with coloured table - status of the reactors.
- WHO: nuclear concerns (FAQs), including: Potassium iodide may damage kidneys, only take on (medical) authority's recommendations.
- Fukushima prefecture updated monitoring results (Japanese).
- Raw milk monitoring results from the 16th (note - none was treated and none is available for sale) (English).
- Ministry of Health Labour and Welfare press release re. Iitate water levels of Iodine131 in water at the Takishita water treatment plant: Japanese and English through Google Translate.
Note: The ministry and Japan's Nuclear Safety Commission says this water unsafe to drink, but otherwise normal (domestic) use is ok.
