Video record of Fukushima on 3/13

JVJA (Japan VIsual Journalist Association) visited Hutabamachi, which is 3~7 km away from Fukushima plants on 3/13.

It was after the explosion of reactor 1 on 3/12. Tepco was venting reactor 3 to avoid its explosion.

JVJA went to the town office and Futaba kosei hospital, but nobody was there.

Medical staff ran away and it was all messed up inside of the building.

It was over 100 micro Sv/h. Because the radiation level was too high, none of their counter could indicate the accurate radiation level.

If you are in 100 micro Sv/h area, you exceed the safety limit of 1 mSv/y within 10 hours.

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.
