#Radioactive Japan: Spring Athletic Event at One Elementary School in Fukushima

News clip from TBS News (5/12/2012).

Of the same event, Sankei Shinbun (5/12/2012) quotes the school official who said they had replaced the soil in the school yard (and that is considered "decontamination") which lowered the air radiation level to 0.13 to 0.18 microsievert/hour. For elementary schools, I believe they measure at 50 centimeters off the ground, but it could be at one meter, looking at those white, cylindrical monitoring devices.
