Breaking News: Black Rain

Storm brought fallout to the Kanto area on 8/19/2011.

Since it started to rain,around 11:30AM ,radiation level spiked up around in Tokyo.

Like in Kanagawa,it was 0.055 uSv/h before the rain but it jumped up to 0.095 uSv/h.

This is almost the highest level since April.

This rain is highly likely to contain cesium,which caused the spike up.

0.095 uSv/h isn’t the problem.Hot particles coming out of the rain water when it’s dry matters when we breathe it to our lung.

In Kanto area,nobody should touch the rain either. Especially cesium is absorbed from hair too.

The night before the day,8/18/2011 22:00~23:00,massive steam splashed from Fukushima plants too.

and the wind blew from north on 8/19. It is rational to think the steam came to Tokyo.

On the internet,our grass rooted community had a consensus that the account called “Happy”is a whistle-blower of Tepco.

but we are starting to suspect it recently since he has been commenting the “steam” is a harmful rumor.

Now the steam and smoke is observed even on the Fukuichi camera.

Probably,radioactive steam is splashing out of the cracks in the ground actually.

Fallout will affect our tap water in 2~3 days from now.

Can’t we escape from the endless hell..

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
