They cut off electric wires buried underground when they did boring exploration yesterday.
They say they are planning to build walls to the bedrock surrounding the plants to shut down the contaminated water,but because of the series of additional constructions,there are so many wires not marked on the map. Building the walls is likely to cut off some important wires.

According to the research of Tokyo metropolitan institute of public health,there has not been radioactive plume detected since 5/14,but they detected 5.3Bq/㎡ Cesium134,5.1Bq/㎡ cesium137 on 8/5,4.5Bq/㎡ cesium134,3.93Bq/㎡ cesium137 on 8/6.
>Something’s happening in Fukushima again.

It is inevitable that more and more people will die of cancer. If they apply the law about radiation,mandatory evacuation area will be 100km~200km ,which includes Tokyo of course.

[Demonstration of 8/6/2011]
It’s been 66 years since Hiroshima and Nagasaki bomb,while Japanese pm was making a “traditionaly” pointless statement at Hiroshima park,
3000~10,000(estimate) people gathered at Hibiya in Tokyo and walked to Tepco’s air-conditioned head office.
Police worked as units,one unit has 250 members and they tried to chop off the line.
The admin of the demonstration noticed it at the very beginning of the demonstration,so police got irritated.
Police provoked people to attack,some of the stupid attendances fought against police,some were arrested.
24 hours later ,nuc is still working now.

[Fascism also rises.]
Japanese government is filing a new law for emergency.
This law is to restrict the freedom of moving,living,speaking(internet) and property and gather all the power to pm.
Once they pass the law,we can’t evacuate,use internet,and withdraw money from bank when it’s the most needed.

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.
