From Sify of India reports:
"A US aircraft carrier stationed in Japan about 320 km from the troubled Fukushima nuclear  power plant has detected low levels of radiation, the US Navy said on Tuesday. The levels detected by the USS George Washington, which is docked in Yokosuka, posed no danger to the public, said Rear Admiral Richard Wren, the commander of US naval forces in Japan. Nevertheless, he urged US personnel on the base to stay indoors as much as possible

"There is no appreciable health risk, and we are being very conservative in our recommendations," he said.

Wren said the levels were less than one month's worth of natural exposure produced by the sun and other sources."
