Tepco made an off site center to settle down Fukushima plants in Ohkuma machi Fukushima.

Having reactor 3’s nuclear explosion, they withdrew to Fukushima prefectural government office on 3/15.

The site was opened for mass media on 3/2/2012.

Nothing was changed since they left, we are supposed to imagine how hard it was and admire.

However, on the picture of Asahi newspaper, it was caught that potassium iodide was left on the desk.

Though Fukushima citizens were not given potassium iodide, Tepco employees kept plenty of them and evacuated themselves.

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.
