Fukushima disaster: ‘Mutant flowers’ found FOUR years after nuclear meltdown


The Fukushima nuclear disaster shocked the world when it happened four years ago – and the impact is still ongoing. Images of flowers taken near ground zero in Fukushima, Japan, have surfaced online, showing daisies which appear to be malformed. A tsunami which hit the Fukushima Daichii nuclear plant caused the power station to have a meltdown on March 11, 2011. Although there was enough warning to clear the region of residents, there are still areas which are termed ‘red zones’ and are not safe for people to enter.
