[Whistle-blowing from a Fukushima worker]

Fuel rods have melted out and it might be reacting under ground.

In early August,an actual Fukushima worker emailed to his friends.
“A lot of the cracks came up in the ground,massive steam is coming up from there.It’s too smoggy here,can’t see a thing.It seems like nuclear reaction is happening underground.Now we are evacuating.Watch out for the direction of wind.”

Whistle-blower in the gov
“I’ve heard that steam is coming up from the cracks in the ground.We are afraid of it.”

Another Fukushima worker,
“Near the reactors,there are a lot of the cracks in the ground,steam splashed out from there sometimes.and we have detected 10Sv/h at 6 places unlike gov’s announcement.”

[We couldn’t be deceived anymore]

8/15/2011,Tepco confessed there is a huge pool on the basement floor of Fukushima,which is shared by units 1~4. They stock 6400 nuclear spent fuel rods in it, and groundwater is flowing into the pool through broken duct.

Now the massively contaminated water is in it at least 9.0t.

6400 fuel rods is about 140% of the total fuel rods in the reactors.

Actually Fukushima nuc plants are built on underground water vein,they always needed to pomp up groundwater. However,because of the accident,they stopped pomp up the water.This fact has not been published yet.

They say Tepco “found” this trouble on 8/13,but they can’t not know the fact since the very beginning of the accident.

Massive steam splashing out might have something to do with this.

[The situation is worse than we think]

A person in Yokohama detected radiation on the roof of his apartment.
Cs-137 ; 33,659 Bq/kg
Cs-134 ; 29,775 Bq/kg
Total ; 63,434 Bq/kg

Radioactive food in Japanese school lunches – reports

[Super size]

Yokohama city education board served cesium lunch for 84,061 children.

If I was a father,I would never let my kids go to the school.

[You can think most of the beef sold at supermarket are contaminated regardless of the level]

A farmer in Gumna had their 13 beef checked.
Result ; detected cesium from 11 of 13.
1 was already sold.
1 was ND.

You are supposed to eat beef with 500 Bq/kg,so as long as the radiation level is lower than it,all of the beef is sold.If the result is honest.

[They still keep selling pork]

“A truck was moving pork from Iidate mura to the market and got a car accident”
→They still keep selling pork.

All the beef from Iidatemura detected cesium. It is impossible to think only pork is safe.

[seems like acute death is increasing in Fukushima]

A Fukushima citizen temporarily came home in mandatory evacuating area. On the way,they had a car accident but it was not serious. Nobody was injured.
→Died all of a sudden in a hospital,where she was sent just in case because of the car accident.

[Deceptive radiation map]

According to the radiation map of local government,they detect radiation in 18m high from the ground in Tokyo. When it comes to Sendai,it’s 80.3m high from the ground.
I wonder who is that tall.

[Reports about acute death in Fukushima and elsewhere.]

“In August,I have attended 3 funerals already. They are all 50s~60s.”@Fukushima
“After 311,at least 8 people died suddenly around me.”@Fukushima
“15 died in 3 months after 311 in my town.”@Gifu
“My husband died all of a sudden.His PC was left turned on.”
“We arrived at my husband’s parents house in Fukushima.We opened gifts for them,and my husband tasted sake, picked up snack.then he fell down on his back.He was dead.”
“10% of the old people in a shelter died.”@Fukushima

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.
