Fukushima prefectural government warned volcanic gas density jumped up over double in Mt. Azumasan

On 4/30/2015, Fukushima prefectural government announced they measured the excessive density of volcanic gas in Mt. Azumasan and closed the road to this mountain.

Sendai Regional Headquarters of Japan Meteorological Agency states there is no evidence to prove the volcano has become active.

At 6AM of 4/30/2015, the volcanic gas density jumped up to 2.5 times much as safety limit at 1.2km point from the crater. It stays higher level than safety limit by the moment of 6AM of 5/2/2015.

La préfecture de Fukushima alerte sur un doublement des gaz volcaniques dans le Mt. Azumasan


Le 30 avril 2015, la préfecture de Fukushima a annoncé avoir relevé une concentration excessive des gaz volcaniques du Mt. Azumasan et a fermé la route d’accès à la montagne.

Les bureaux centraux de Sendai de la Japan Meteorological Agency affirment qu’il n’y a rien prouvant que le volcan s’est réveillé.
Le 30 avril 2015 à 06:00, la concentration des gaz volcaniques à 1,2 km du cratère a atteint 2,5 fois la limite de sécurité. C’est resté au-dessus de la limite de sécurité jusqu’à présent, au 2 mai 2015 à 06:00.
Le Mt. Azumasan est un groupe volcanique situé a cheval sur les préfectures de Fukushima et Yamagata, il s’étend sur 20 km d’Est en Ouest.


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.
