Fallout level spiked in Fukushima city on 10/13/2013

Fukushima prefectural government observed the fallout level (Cesium-134/137) in Fukushima city spiked up on 10/13/2013.

It had been lower than detectable level, but Cs-137 reading picked up to be 8.96 MBq/km2 on 10/12/2013.

The next day, Cs-134 level reached 14.9 MBq/km2, and Cs-137 level reached 41.4 MBq/km2.

The reason is not verified.





Couldn’t make time to get the Donation button back on by 10/14/2013. It should be reposted NEXT MONDAY. I will try.

Le 13 octobre 2013, les retombées radioactives ont marqué un pic sur la ville de Fukushima


La préfecture de Fukushima a observé que le niveau des retombées radioactives (césium 134/137) sur la ville de Fukushima a marqué un pic le 13 octobre 2013.

C’était en-dessous du niveau détectable mais les relevés en Cs 137 sont montés jusqu’à 8,96 MBq/km² le 12 octobre 2013.
Le lendemain, la radioactivité en Cs 134 a atteint 14,9 MBq/km² et en Cs 137 elle a atteint 41,4 MBq/km².
La cause n’en est pas établie.


Pas eu le temps de remettre les boutons sur les dons pour le 14 octobre. Ils devraient être de retour LUNDI PROCHAIN. Je vais essayer.

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.
