so far,radiation level is not spiking up at so many places.
I think that’s because the fire is still outside of the building.
To me,the actual threat is the finally starting hydrovolcanic explosion underground.
Now nobody can stop it anymore.
(Nika here: Brontide (′brän′tīdz) is a name for a long low rumble heard with thunder or when there is an earthquake – here is a reference link)
(“The 2005 Dec. 26 earthquake that devastated parts of Asia was recorded by microphones at the island of Diego Garcia. The recording of the quake has been made available by scientists at Columbia University.
The scientists used the recording to follow the earthquake’s path. They discovered that it occurred in two phases, moving south to north.
The scientists’ methods may one day result in faster warnings as earthquakes occur. They also could help with relief. The noise studies could show exactly where ruptures have occurred, helping to pinpoint areas that have suffered damage.”
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.
