Japan's Nuclear Crisis

By: Rachel Skillicorn

In Japan, the recent tsunami and earthquake, affected some of the nuclear plants. That means that radioactive material is now in their air and can be deadly. Officials released other chemicals into the atmosphere trying to counteract the nuclear particulate in the air. People (some 19 miles away) were warned not to drink tap water because the radioactive iodine, which is a element that only comes out in extreme temperatures, is currently 3 times above the normal level. Luckily, Japan is now recovering.
