Government: Radiation levels in Slovakia remain normal

If the situation at stricken Japanese nuclear power plants doesn't worsen dramatically, Slovakia shouldn't be subjected to dangerous levels of radiation, according to an analysis of radiation monitoring and the anticipated effects of the situation in Japan that was examined by the government on Wednesday, March 16.

"The measured figures in Slovakia are normal at the moment and are being constantly monitored," states the report, as quoted by the TASR newswire. Radioactivity in the atmosphere is being monitored by 26 meteorological stations across Slovakia, each of which is evaluating the measured figures at ten-minute intervals. Slovak meteorologists also have figures from neighbouring Austria and Hungary at their disposal, along with those issued by other EU member states.
