Fukushima radiation and Nebraska evacuation

“A citizens’ group in Fukushima Prefecture “Fukushima Network to Protect Children from Radiation” tested the urine samples from 10 children in Fukushima City, age 6 to 16, and announced on June 30 that a small amount of radioactive materials was detected from all samples.
The highest amount of cesium-134 was from an 8-year-old girl, at 1.13 becquerels per liter. The highest amount of cesium-137 was from a 7-year-old boy, at 1.30 becquerels per liter.
The samples were taken in late May, and sent to the French laboratory ACRO (Association pour le Contrôle de la Radioactivité dans l’Ouest) to testing for radiation. ACRO has experience in surveying the radiation exposure in children after the Chernobyl accident. ACRO’s president David Boilley said in the press conference, “There is a very high possibility that children in and around Fukushima City have been exposed to internal radiation. Prior to the [Fukushima] accident, these numbers would have been zero.”

In the meanwhile in Nebraska, the NRUC said there is nothing to worry about, that is why they imposed a 10 mile evacuation radius around Fort Calhoun. As a reminder Fukushima has a roughly 18 mile evacuation radius zone.

Is the media going to cover those news in any detail aside from a 2 line mention at the end of the newspaper or webpage, I sincerely doubt.
