According to Japan Meteorological Agency, the next Typhoon “FRANCISCO” is going to hit eastern Japan this weekend, where Fukushima nuclear plant is situated.

It will approach Okinawa on 10/24/2013, and head to North-East.

The central pressure is 940 hPa (Very Strong). It can rain as heavily as the previous Typhoon with the autumnal rain front.


Fukushima plant has been having the severe contaminated water problems due to the recent heavy rains. This new Typhoon may cause additional damage to the plant.



Couldn’t make time to get the Donation button back on by 10/14/2013. It should be reposted NEXT MONDAY. I will try.

Le typhon suivant frappera l’Est japonais ce week-end / encore un “très fort”

Selon la Japan Meteorological Agency, le typhon suivant, “FRANCISCO”, va frapper l’Est japonais ce week-end, là où se trouve la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima.
Il approchera d’Okinawa le 24 octobre 2013 et se dirigera ensuite vers le Nord-Est.
La pression au centre est de 940 hPa (Très Fort). Il peut y avoir de très fortes pluies comme avec le précédent à cause du front pluvieux d’automne.

La centrale de Fukushima a de graves problèmes d’eau extrêmement radioactive à cause des fortes pluies récentes. Ce nouveau typhon peut ajouter des dégâts supplémentaires dans la centrale.

Pas eu le temps de remettre les boutons sur les dons pour le 14 octobre. Ils devraient être de retour LUNDI PROCHAIN. Je vais essayer.

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.
