With everything else going on today, this large piece of news seems unlikely to make the show:

Broad areas around the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant could soon be declared uninhabitable, perhaps for decades, after a government survey found radioactive contamination that far exceeded safe levels, several major media outlets said Monday.

The post-Fukushima uninhabitable zone could cover communities in a 12-mile radius from the nuclear plant. In Okuma, a couple of miles south, radiation has been measured at 25 times the limit declared acceptable by the government. It is – or was – home to about 11,000 people.
