Fortunately the tropical cyclone after Typhoon DANAS didn’t cause the significant damage to Fukushima nuclear plant, but more typhoons are coming toward Fukushima area.

Currently Typhoon 25 and 26 are in the South of Japan, and Japan Meteorological Agency is forecasting Typhoon 26 “WIPHA” is coming toward Fukushima plant area on 10/16/2013 (JST).

The central pressure is 945 hPa, scale is “large”, intensity is “strong” according to Japan Meteorological Agency.

Tepco reported 1,400 tonnes of additional contaminated water must be pumped up and transferred to the tanks, which Tepco is running out of every time it rains heavily.

Par chance, le cyclone tropical qui a suivi le typhon DANAS n’a pas provoqué de dégâts sérieux dans la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima mais d’autres typhons vont se diriger sur la région de Fukushima.

Actuellement, les typhons 25 et 26 sont au Sud du Japon et la Japan Meteorological Agency prévoir que le typhon 26 “WIPHA” se dirige sur la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima pour y arriver le 16 octobre 2013 (JST).
Selon la Japan Meteorological Agency, sa pression au centre est de 945 hPa, il est côté comme “vaste”, sont intensité est “forte”.
Tepco avait rapporté que chaque fois qu’il pleut beaucoup, 1 400 tonnes d’eaux extrêmement radioactives supplémentaires doivent être pompées et ajoutées dans les citernes alors que Tepco en manque.

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.
