Yeesh... that hourly rate (161 mSv/Hr) is double the TOTAL exposure for someone living 10 miles from the 3 mile island accident. Think about that... same distance, but hundreds or thousands of times worse radiation. In a day, you've received a years worth of normal radiation. In less than a month, you have enough radiation proven to give you cancer.
So much for people living there...

Only problem is... the containment building is GONE... the spent fuel pool is GONE.... So, WHERE ARE the fuel rods and why the hell are they saying they are trying to pump water into the fuel pool to cool it when it's obviously NOT THERE?????
Those hotspots look non too good...
