Doesn't Anybody Have A Geiger Counter

Maybe I'm just missing something, but I feel like their are knowable things which aren't really getting reported. Are radiation levels elevated in Tokyo, for example?

...I guess one can use the Google to answer such questions.
Many Tokyo residents are fleeing the city and heading south, while others are hoarding supplies and lining up for hours for gas amid fears that radiation from the troubled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant will reach the city.

Residents have so far been told that radiation of 10 times the normal level has been detected in Tokyo, 240 kilometres south of the plant, but levels are still safe and there is no reason to panic.

Still there seems to be a shortage of hard facts.
