Errors found in projections for spread of radiation in severe accidents
Japan's nuclear regulatory authority apologized Monday after finding errors in its recently announced projections for the spread of radiation from reactors nationwide in the event of severe accidents.

The Nuclear Regulation Authority corrected the projections to show that the city of Nagaoka, rather than Uonuma, both in Niigata Prefecture, would be the most distant point from Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant where the amount of radiation released a week after an accident could reach 100 millisieverts, the level where evacuation is recommended.

The authority initially said the amount of radiation could reach that level in locations around 40 kilometers from the plant, reaching Uonuma, about 40.2 km away from the plant.
