[New leakage] Contaminated water flowed to the Pacific outside of the port / Radiation level still under analysis

Following up this article.. The new leaked tank was tilted from the beginning / Countertop had no packing material [URL]


Tepco announced the leaked contaminated water flowed to the outside of the plant port through drain.

Tepco said because it was raining heavily and there was nothing to dam up the leaking water, the contaminated water leaked to the Pacific.

The leaked tank is approx. only 300m from the sea.

The analysis result of the radioactive material in the drain hasn’t been completed.


They dammed the drain with the sandbags but it’s not verified how much of the leaked 430 L flowed to the sea.






American economic crisis is severely damaging Fukushima Diary. I’d be extremely happy if you consider donation.

Thank you very much.

[Nouvelle fuite] L’eau extrêmement radioactive est partie dans le Pacifique en dehors du port / analyses en cours

Tepco annonce que les eaux extrêmement radioactives de la fuite sont parties en dehors du port de la centrale par les évacuations.
Tepco déclare qu’il pleuvait très fortement et qu’il n’y avait rien pour arrêter l’écoulement de la fuite, les eaux extrêmement radioactives sont parties dans le Pacifique.
La citerne de la fuite est à environ 300 m de la mer seulement.
Les résultats des analyses des éléments radioactifs de l’évacuation ne sont pas encore établis.

Ils ont obturé l’évacuation avec des sacs de sable mais on ne sait pas quelle proportion des 430 L est partie à la mer.


La crise économique américaine nuit gravement au Fukushima Diary. Je serai extrêmement heureux si vous pouviez faire un don.

Merci beaucoup.

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.
