"Is Fukushima Still a Radiation Threat Two Years Later?," a free program, will be presented at Pearl City Public Library on Sunday, May 5 at 2 p.m. in the Adult Reading Section.

Dean Otsuki, a local environmentalist, will discuss how Japan, the Pacific Ocean, the jetstream, and the United States have been affected by radiation still spewing from the disabled nuclear power plant. Otsuki will also share what information Tokyo Electric Power Company, the Japanese and U. S. governments have been providing the public about Fukushima, and what steps can be taken to protect you from radiation exposure. This one-hour program is suitable for ages 12 and older and will include a question-and-answer session.

Contact the Library as soon as possible if a sign language interpreter or other special accommodation is needed.
