Goal of this month : 2,000.00 USD (My previous salary in Japan)
Current total : 703.00 USD
To go : 1,297.00 USD
Thank you for your support as always !
Today I added some changes for the donation buttons. Now I can accept donations from 0.50 USD!
Because I was making my travel plan until 4:30 AM last night, I got a headache today and didn’t do any other things than working today. lol I haven’t decided where to go after this summer.
Web journalists who I know of are becoming sick one after one. Vomit, fever, diarrhea, pain in the chest etc.. mostly they are in Chiba but even people in Kyushu show the same symptoms. It’s rare to have stomach flu in this season.
If it’s because of radiation, even if you get recovered, you’ll soon have another health problem. Your body is destroyed, can’t be fixed. That’s the scary point of radiation.
Recently I hear more news like US or Russia are trying to offer international help for Fukushima. This is what I hoped last year. I actually aimed at it when I started FD to take their international support . However, now that I read the journal of NRC, I don’t even count on them. They won’t have a clue either. I find it too optimistic to call Fukushima a crisis. It’s not even a crisis. It’s over.
I’m afraid that they try to take more control over immigration if UN puts Fukushima under its control though they can’t even do anything. They will start even worse media blackout. then, I’d have to crawl into Fukushima with my laptop..
I heard the news that Russia and China were asked to accept 40 million immigration from Japan. I personally think that story is likely but I felt like there was a confusion at some point so I didn’t post it.
Oh now a news reporter showed this mutated dandelion in the TV show “Morning bird” of TV asahi. 2 flowers from one huge stem. 20 of them are growing close to each other in Tokyo. Maybe the dandelions were stressed. The TV show is asking for more pictures of mutated plants. I guess they read FD.
At last, today Tepco did another meaningless research to look around the water leakage point in torus room of reactor 2 because the water level was 60cm supposedly. Of course they couldn’t find anything. Tepco’s spokes man said, “if they can hear the sound of water, it may be near the water leakage point.” lol
Highest radiation level : 120 mSv/h (North west corner)
↑ Suppression chamber
Tepco assumed the water was leaking from the torus room. but the robot ran above the torus room to check the water wasn’t coming up from the manhole on the top of the room. In short, they didn’t check anything so I didn’t post it. They will release the video tomorrow but it will be meaningless as well. Water might be leaking from the bottom of torus room or maybe from container vessel directly.
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.
