Skip to comments.High radiation readings found at Fukushima tanks (NEW LEAK)

At the time of last weeks discovered leak the plant operator said the radioactivity of the puddles was around 100 millisieverts per hour.
Jiji news agency said the highest reading of 1,800 millisieverts per hour was found at one of the tanks, adding that exposure to that level for four hours would be fatal to humans. The other readings measured between 70 and 230 millisieverts, the agency added.
A TEPCO official said the operator could not rule out the possibility of new leaks of radioactive water at the four sites, the agency reported, adding that the operator had not noticed a decline in water levels inside the tanks.

Thanks! You’re right, this is getting REAL serious. If they have to leave the site, and no longer able to keep the cores and stored rods cool, it’s Katie bar the door!
Time to finally purchase that radiation detector, if you’ve been putting it off!
No drop in water levels....yet 1800k? What are they containing it will plastic?....lol
I’ve read where they purchased cheap metal storage tanks from the lowest bidder. In their defense, time was an issue as well.
Fatal in just a few hours. Lifetime limit in mere minutes...
What I don’t get is the lack the urgency with this. Certainly as you say things can get real bad real quick.
I am in Florida. How long do I have?
I think they’re about out of options. In the meantime, folks are ignoring; hoping it goes away.
Well this from the last paragraph of the Article kinda lends a clue as to where this is heading.
The International Atomic Energy Agency questioned why the leak last week of 300 tons of highly radioactive water merited a rating on its International Nuclear Event Scale (INES), when no other incident since the March 2011 meltdowns had.
Two inches less and you’d been a queen.
There has been so much disinformation and flat out lies, the only thing one can rely on is the fact that the situation is continuing to worsen...
Sorry if I offended you.
Seriously, what is the big picture here? What is the solution and how bad can this get?
The next time you order Alaskan King Crab, and see that it’s glowing, get a refund.
The lack of urgency has been there since day one. First, it was Japan’s usual denial to save face. Second, they immediately knew it wasn’t fixable two years ago. Third, the msm has played along with the denial.
Florida is better of than most other states as far as contaminants from rainwater. Southern Florida even better. I don't think anyone knows how bad it could get if the workers are forced offsite and unable to keep the cooling going. There is many times more nuclear material stored at Fukushima than ever existed at Chernobyl. This issue is lonely how much of it gets distributed and by what means.
I'm no expert, just my 2 cents... :)
Correction - The issue is how much of it gets distributed and by what means.
just effing great
