In March 2011 the worlds second-largest nuclear disaster occurred on the eastern coast of Japan. A 9.0-magnitude earthquake caused a nearly 50-foot tsunami that flooded the Fukushima nuclear power plant. The devastating tidal wave caused equipment failures that led the nuclear reactors to overheat to the point of meltdown. Dangerous radioactive materials released into the air continue to threaten the health of the ocean and people around the world today. Topics include:

From Booklist:

While previous books in the ongoing Disaster Alert! series, such as Environmental Disaster Alert! (2005) and Hurricane and Typhoon Alert! (2004), usually presented general topics, this volume focon particular recent events. Each book explains the natural phenomenon that precipitated the titular disaster as well as its effects and its aftermath. Devoting equal space to text and color illustrations, mainly photos, a typical two-page spread offers a few paragraphs of text, two or more illustrations, and a sidebar or fast-fact box. Fukushima Nuclear Disaster reports on the 2011 crisis brought about when an earthquake caused a tsunami that engulfed Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant. Good diagrams and time lines enhance the sections describing the unfolding events during the nuclear meltdown. Other double-page spreads consider topics such as the event’s effects on the environment and on public opinion regarding the safety of nuclear reactors. Libraries with a demand for books on the topics will find these serviceable choices. Grades 5-8. --Carolyn Phelan
