Where can I find information on potential radiation risks from the Japanese nuclear emergency?

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) provides publically available reports on leakage and sea water radioactivity near the Fukushima Daiichi plant. The most recent report can be found at: http://www.iaea.org/newscenter/news/2013/japan-basic-policy-full.html Exit EPA Disclaimer

EPA’s nationwide RadNet system monitors the nation’s air, drinking water, precipitation, and pasteurized milk to determine levels of radiation in the environment.  To view near-real time air monitoring data or to search the RadNet database, please visit: http://www.epa.gov/radnet

EPA’s Office of Radiation Protection has provided answers to frequently asked questions about Fukushima which can be viewed at: http://radiation.supportportal.com/link/portal/23002/23013/ArticleFolder/2001/Fukushima

One additional resource is EPA’s Fukushima-devoted website, which houses archived data from EPA’s accelerated RadNet sampling and analysis in response to the Fukushima incident in 2011. You can view that site here: http://www.epa.gov/japan2011. Please note, this website contains information from March 11, 2011 to June 30, 2011 and is no longer updated regularly, but continues to be available for historical and informative purposes.
