There are quite a few graphs after that that show the different parts of the area.  Just go check it out, if your city isn’t listed above.

A comment on the above from Steve Herman of Voice of America – I believe IAEA’s role is to suggest, not request: RT @Reuters: NISA says IAEA did not officially request Japan expand evacuation zone.
