This 2013 update on the Fukushima disaster shows that radiation levels remain high 40 miles from the site of the meltdown.

The lingering effects of the March 2011 Japanese earthquake, tsunami and Fukushima nuclear disasters are captured by filmmaker Christopher Noland in 3.11: Surviving Japan. He was an American living and working in Tokyo during the catastrophic events, who volunteered for the cleanup in Northeastern Japan, documenting true stories from those affected by the disaster.
