Hosted by

It’s been six years since the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant disaster. Three reactors were damaged by an earthquake and tsunami off Japan, releasing radioactive toxins into the Pacific Ocean. Thousands of people fled their homes, and many will never return. Nuclear waste has reached parts of the west coast in the U.S.
