Radioactive Fukushima waters detected by Canada’s coastlines

Radioactive cesium isotopes have been detected in the waters off the coast of Vancouver, British Columbia, although the levels detected are said to be below the permissible limits for drinking water.
On March 11, 2011, approximately 80 miles from the coast of Sendai, Japan, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake occurred underwater. It is one of the largest recorded earthquakes in history and the ensuing tsunami created waves 133 feet high while ravaging its way almost six miles inland. One of the consequences was a reactor meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The power plant began spewing radioactive material into the air, land, and ocean. Now the radioactivity has reached as far out as Western Canada.
