New tank leakage outside of the plant port area / Location map is not published

On 9/28/2013, Tepco reported a new tank leakage was found.

Around 23:00 of 9/28/2013, a sub-contract worker found the leakage from the flange part of the tank for reactor5 and 6.

The tank is located in the North of reactor6, where is the outside of the plant port area. The leaked water directly goes out of the port, but Tepco doesn’t publish the location map.


At this moment, Tepco is reporting the radiation level is the same as the background, it’s not dripping to the floor.



You can ignore the truth but the truth won’t ignore you.

Nouvelle fuite de citerne en dehors de la zone du port de la centrale / La carte n’en est pas publiée


Le 28 septembre 2013, Tepco publie qu’une nouvelle fuite de citerne a été repérée.

Le 28 septembre 2013 vers 23:00, un ouvrier sous-traitant a découvert la fuite sur une partie jointive d’une des citernes pour les réacteurs 5 et 6.
Cette citerne est au nord du réacteur 6, en-dehors de la zone du port de la centrale. L’eau fuit directement hors du port mais Tepco n’en publie pas la carte de localisation.

Pour l’instant, Tepco en dit que la radioactivité est la même que celle ambiante, ça ne goutte pas sur le sol.

Vous pouvez ignorer la vérité mais la vérité ne vous ignorera pas.

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.
