1.6 mSv/h was measured in Futabamachi before the explosion of 3/12/2011

In the interview with OurPlanet-TV, Idogawa, Ex-Futabamachi mayor commented 1590 μSv/h was actually recorded in Kamihatori area, Futabamachi before the explosion of 3/12/2011.

This area is 6km from Fukushima plant.

Reactor1 had a hydrogen explosion at 15:36 of 3/12/2011, but before the explosion, Tepco actually vented twice after the molten fuel leaked out of RPV. 

(cf, Tepco vented PCV of reactor1 after nuclear fuel melted through the RPV, twice [Link])

Mr. Idogawa states, there were pregnant women and children in the area when 1590 μSv/h was measured.

On avait 1,6 mSv/an à Futabamachi avant l’explosion du 12 mars 2011

Au cours de l’interview à OurPlanet-TV, M. Idogawa, l’ex-maire de Futabamachi dit que 1 590 μSv/h étaient en fait relevés dans la zone de Kamihatori, à Futabamachi avant l’explosion du 12 mars 2011.

Cette zone est à 6 km de la centrale de Fukushima.

Le réacteur 1 a connu une explosion d’hydrogène le 12 mars 2012 à 15:36 mais avant l’explosion, Tepco a en fait purgé deux fois après que le combustible fondu ait fuit de la RPV. (= enceinte de confinement principale du réacteur)

(cf. Tepco avait purgé la PCV du réacteur 1 après que le combustible fondu ait percé la RPV, deux fois [Lien])

M. Idogawa affirme qu’il y avait des femmes enceintes et des enfants dans la zone quand on a relevé les 1 590 μSv/h.


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.
