On 6/30/2015, Japan Meteorological Agency admitted Mt. Hakone erupted. They state they couldn’t confirm the eruption in the previous investigation for some reason.

The type of eruption hasn’t been announced. However the 700m radius area around the assumed crater might be affected, they report.

They raised the warning level from 2 to 3 to ban entering the entire mountain area.

Mt. Hakone hasn’t erupted since 13th century.

Since 16:00 of 6/29/2015, they have intermittently observed infrasound in Mt. Hakone, which is assumed to be caused by the eruptions.

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.
