On 3/26/2015, the Maritime Safety Agency announced the new volcanic island in South of Tokyo keeps still extremely active and increasing the volcanic ash.


They carried out the aerial survey on 3/25/2015. They found out the volcano still erupts 5 〜 6 times a minute, which is as active as February.

As a difference from the previous time they researched in February, the volume of volcanic ash increased to suggest the exploding point is getting deeper.

Prof. Nogami from Tokyo Inst. of Technology states it can have an explosive eruption if it goes deeper.


Currently the volcanic island is assumed to be 2.45 km2, which is approx 5 times large as last year.

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.
