Tepco may be hiding unknown explosion occurred on 3/16/2011

NHK reported the spiking up of radiation level was monitored on 3/16/2011 at Fukushima Daini, where is 12km south to Daiichi. This plant did not have meltdown supposedly.

The radiation level jumped up from 20 μSv/h to 87.7 μSv/h, when was from 9:40AM to 9:50AM of 3/16/2011.

The data had not been published until NHK requested Tepco for disclosure.

Officially, there was no plant explosion on 3/16/2011.

It is confirmed that around at 8:30AM of the same day, huge amount of white smoke was spouting out from reactor3. At 10:40AM, 10,000μSv/h of radiation was monitored at the entrance of Fukushima Daiichi plant. However, NISA reported it may be from reactor2 for some reason. They heard the explosive sound from reactor2 on 3/15/2011, but it’s not 3/16/2011 and it didn’t have an explosion supposedly.

Also, around at 5:45AM of the same day, it is confirmed that reactor4 had fire on the North-West side of the 4th floor. However, details have never been reported.

It is still not known what exactly happened to cause the unusual radiation spiking up in the morning of 3/16/2011, when none of the plants were supposed to have exploded.

Tepco is stating that they are going to investigate why they did not publish the data.

Tepco potrebbe nascondere un’esplosione avvenuta il 16/03/2011

La NHK ha riportato l’aumento improvviso del livello di radiazioni monitorato il 16/03/2011 a Fukushima Daini (2), che si trova a 12 km a sud rispetto a Daiichi (1). L’impianto 2, in teoria, non ha subito fusione.

Il livello di radiazioni è balzato da 20 µSv/ora a 87.7 µSv/ora, dalle 9:40 AM alle 9:50 AM del 16/03/2011.

I dati non sono stati resi pubblici finché la NHK ha richiesto alla Tepco la divulgazione.

Ufficialmente non c’è stata un esplosione il 16/03/2011.

E’ confermato che intorno alle 8:30 dello stesso giorno una grossa quantità di fumo bianco è fuoriuscito dal reattore 3. Alle 10:40 AM, 10,000 µSv/ora di radiazioni sono stati monitorati all’entrata di Fukushima Daini. In ogni caso la NISA ha riportato che potrebbe derivare dal reattore 2 in qualche modo.
Hanno sentito il suono di un esplosione dal reattore 2 il 15/03/2011, ma non il 16/03/2011 e si suppone che non vi sia stata un’esplosione.

Inoltre, intorno alle 5:45AM dello stesso giorno, è confermato che il reattore 4 è andato a fuoco nella parte nord-ovest del 4° piano. In ogni caso i dettagli non sono mai stati pubblicati.

Non si sa ancora cosa sia successo esattamente da causare lo strano picco di radiazioni nella mattina del 16/03/2011, quando nessuno degli impianti si suppone sia esploso.

La Tepco ha dichiarato che investigheranno sul perché non hanno pubblicato i dati prima.

Tepco cache peut-être qu(une autre explosion s'est produite le 16 mars 2011

NHK a rapporté qu’un pic de radioactivité a été surveillé le 16 mars 2011 à Fukushima Daini qui se trouve à 12 km au Sud de Dai-ichi. Cette centrale n’a soi-disant pas connu de fusion de réacteur.

Le 15 mars 2011 de 09:40 à 09:50, le niveau de radioactivité est passé de 20 μSv/h à 87,7 μSv/h.

Ces données n’ont pas été publiées jusqu’à ce que NHK demande à Tepco de les divulguer.

Officiellement, le 16 mars 2011 il n’y a pas eu d’explosion à la centrale.

Il est confirmé que ce jour-là et autour de 08:30, une grande quantité de fumée blanche a jailli du réacteur 3. A 10:40, 10 000 μSv/de radioactivité étaient enregistrés à l’entrée de la centrale de Fukushima Dai-ichi. Toutefois, la NISA avait raconté que ça pouvait provenir du réacteur 2. Ils avaient entendu le bruit d’une explosion au réacteur 2 le 15 mars 2011 mais rien le 16 et il n’y aurait soi-disant pas eu d’explosion.

Or, le même jour à 05:45, il est confirmé que le réacteur 4 a connu un incendie au nord-ouest du 4e étage. Toutefois, les détails n’en ont jamais été divulgués.

On ne sait toujours pas ce qui s’est exactement passé pour expliquer la montée de radioactivité dans la matinée du 16 mars 2011 alors qu’aucune des centrales n’est supposée avoir connu d’explosion.

Tepco affirme qu’ils vont enquêter pourquoi ces données n’ont pas été publiées.

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.
