Not so much an update, just a leaking out of information, under the radar of the main stream media.
Wait a minute! Not under the radar, completely ignored by the main stream media
Japan’s ever-sneaky Ministry of Education and Science again quietly released 3 sets of simulation maps of WSPEEDI without any press release nor any explanation; this time it was the simulations that they did on March 15. The Reactor 3 that used MOX fuel blew up on March 14 at 11:01AM JST.
So he remarks that people in Tokyo the next day were reporting a metallic taste just as was reported by the people in Chernobyl, and that people could have been advised to stay indoors, instead the government said that it was just another hydrogen explosion and that no radiation was released as usual (except for a bunch of intensely radioactive chunks of concrete all over the site, possibly a big load of damaged nuclear fuel rods sent a mile away etc.) So far those reports are still dismissed as scare stories, but these should be treated seriously instead of swept under the rug as mere rumors.

It’s one thing to see the spike at the Fukushima site, but disturbing to see a similar spike, even if much, much smaller, in Tokyo. Most of the radiation follows the wind, but a little bit of it still goes out in every direction
Kyodo shows a photo of a field of concrete chunks, one of which is spewing nearly a full sievert an hour, enough to make you sick in just one hour by standing next to it. Very bad.
As for the Chernobyl metallic taste reference? The Battle Of Chernobyl
There was a metallic taste in our mouths, an acidity.
They say radiation has no taste.
It was only later we realized it was the taste of radioactive iodine.
In a few minutes the people could feel the metallic taste in their mouths, their throats were sore and skin was itchy. Almost all complained of severe headaches and diarrhea. Nobody could explain at first what was going on, but soon after they realized that they were exposed to abnormally high level of radiation.
Therefore, people in Tokyo reporting metallic tastes in their mouth were quite likely exposed to radiation. And should have been told to stay in doors. But, it was only hydrogen....right?
Plutonium found in soil at Okuma
Plutonium that is believed to have come from the crippled Fukushima No. 1 power plant has been detected in the town of Okuma about 1.7 km away from the plant's front gate, a Kanazawa University researcher said Sunday.
It is the first time plutonium ejected by the stricken facility has been found in soil beyond its premises.
It may be the "first time" Plutonium has been found or reported on, but it won't be the last.
