[Breaking] 4 more leakages found from the tanks / Max as 1.8 Sv/h

According to Tepco, they found 4 more leakages of the contaminated water tanks.

2 of the leakages are the same locations as where they detected 70 ~ 100 mSv/h on 8/22/2013.

(cf, [More tank leakage] 100 mSv/h detected beside another tank area of the same type [URL])

However, the radiation levels jumped up from 100 mSv/h to 1,800 mSv/h and from 70 mSv/h to 220 mSv/h (γ & β).

Tepco is still under investigation of the cause.

[Breaking] 4 autres fuites dans les citernes/ Max à 1,8 Sv/h


Selon Tepco, ils ont découvert 4 autres fuites dans les citernes à eaux extrêmement radioactives.

2 sont à l’endroit où ils avaient relevé entre 70 et 100 mSv/h le 22 août 2013. (cf. [Encore des fuites] 100 mSv/h à côté d’une autre zone de citernes du même type)
Cependant, la radioactivité est passée de 100 à 1 800 mSv/h et de 70 à 220 mSv/h (γ & β).
Tepco en recherche toujours la raison.

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.
