Fukushima, July 23: A casual photo click by a passerby at Japan's Nasushiobara City sent chills down the spine. This was of the deformed daisies that grew with strange features.

This scenario may be linked to the harmful affects of the nuclear radiation during the 2011 meltdown after the Fukushima Nuclear Plant was hit by Tsunami.


The pictures of the flowers were uploaded on Twitter and a vague translation of the subject provided, which said,"The right one grew up, split into 2 stems to have 2 flowers connected each other, having 4 stems of flower tied beltlike. The left one has 4 stems grew up to be tied to each other and it had the ring-shaped flower."

Experts believe that the abnormality can be attributed to hormonal imbalance.

However, the passerby explains that the radiation measurements in the area are safe for medium to long term habitation.

The city of Nasushiobara is 70 kilometers away from Fukushima. Radiation was detected as far as 60 miles away from the plant.

The largest nuclear disaster since the 1986 Chernobyl incident, the meltdown forced thousands of people to evacuate from the nearby areas.
