Fukushima: New Leak Causes Radioactivity level spikes 6,500 times at Fukushima well

A well near a storage tank at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant rose to more than 6,500 times the expected level on Thursday.

Fukushima New Leak Causes Radioactivity level spikes 6,500 times at Fukushima well

Russia Today reported:

Officials of the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) said on Friday they detected 400,000 becquerels per liter of beta ray-emitting radioactive substances – including strontium – at the site, a level 6,500 times higher than readings taken on Wednesday, NHK World reported.

The storage tank leaked over 300 tons of contaminated water in August, some of which is believed to have found its way into the sea through a ditch. The well in question is about 10 meters from the tank and was dug to gauge leakage. TEPCO said the findings show that radioactive substances like strontium have reached the groundwater. High levels of tritium, which transfers much easier in water than strontium, had already been detected. Officials at TEPCO said they will remove any contaminated soil around the storage tank in an effort to monitor radioactivity levels of the water around the well.

The news comes after it has been reported a powerful typhoon which swept through Japan led to highly radioactive water near the crippled nuclear power plant being released into a nearby drainage ditch, increasing the risk of it flowing into the sea.

On Wednesday TEPCO said it had detected high levels of radiation in a ditch leading to the Pacific Ocean, and that it suspected heavy rains had lifted contaminated soil.

This is one of many leaks that TEPCO have had to address of late. The continuing situation at Fukushima shows that regardless of what the Japanese government says about having the site under control, it clearly is not.

There have been numerous leaks into groundwater that have, by TEPCO’s admission, made it into the Pacific Ocean. With the ocean already contaminated it’s time for the international community to insist that Japan accepts help in dealing with the constant issues at the site. By not doing so, they are risking radioactive damage to the food chain on an unprecedented scale.

It’s easy to think that just the Pacific will be directly affected, but the Pacific is just a named area of the one global ocean that covers 71% of our planet. One in six people on the planet rely on fish as their primary source of protein (source) and often selling fish is the only source of income they have to provide other basic foodstuffs for their families.

Fukushima has become a global disaster and therefore the Japanese need to consider that it needs a global effort to provide a solution. To hell with stiff upper lip and saving face, something needs to be done. Now.

    The nuclear plant at Fukushima Daiichi was an American designed facility and they are doing little or nothing about it..

    Japan is now becoming uninhabitable, but people will always live there.

    Everything in the pacific ocean is now becoming inedible from sardines to tuna but idiots will continue to put them on their dinner plates.

    The water of the pacific, is not even safe to get on your hands, yet idiots are still trying to swim in it.

    The radiation has effected the entire northern hemisphere, but media is not reporting it accurately.

    Nothing alive for over 3,000 miles — No longer saw turtles, dolphins, sharks, birds — Saw one whale, it appeared helpless with big tumor on head..Reports ENE News.

    It was foretold in The Book of Revelation 8 vs 8&9 that 1/3 of the worlds marine life would be wiped out.

    It is now happening right before our eyes.

    Bitter waters,Wormwood,death to all who are touched by this.Being a ‘Proud people’ the Japanese ( TOPCO) has caused irreprable damage that can’t be reversed or contained.Thru-out the coast from Alaska,Canada,USA and MX the contamenation keeps growing and spreading inland. Raising the levels of ‘Safe’ does’nt stop the deaths,that even milk tested in the Eastern US shows hgh levels of cessium,etc. As the storms come into the Westcoast and carried past the Rockies,all plant,water,air,our food supply,will cause a wasteland and all who eat those ‘ready-mixed salads,fruits n nuts,the edible kind,and we hear nothing anywhere on Lame-stream media,our Gov,nothing. Anyone who worked at a Nuc’Plant knows that the Fuel Pool is Stainless steel and into the core.When i heard they were dumping Salt water on the reactors to cool them, i knew we were all heading to a slow death or a massive explosion never seen before..As our Fed’Gov fights over BS and all the treasonist acts commited again’st us by our Pres n Co’. If, when the truth comes out we are still the USA and not a part of the NWO, it’s already to late, their closing the gates, no time to decide. Abandon Cities.

    fffuuuuuuuuuuuUUUUUUUUUUKushima where the rads are flowing through your veins! (sung to ‘Oklahoma’ from the self titled play).

    Seriously, no body cares about what is going on here. Everyone I try to talk to about it goes, “Fukashima? What’s that? Some kind of Japanese food?”. And when I tell them the story of how it happened (yes, I have to go that deep) and its ongoing threat, they either have no response or are looking at me like I’M THEONE who’s nutso.

    This world deserves a cleansing as far as I’m concerned. Many processes need to be rebooted. It’s like a computer that amasses too much Intemp files or recycle bin garbage, Malware and ‘tool bars’. It needs to be cleaned. Returned to a state of wellness.

      stan, you ARE the one nuts, because the way of this world nowadays is complete backwardsness…therefore when you are in aware mode, instead of zombie mode, youre treated as if its the other way around lol. I do agree for once (as long as I can remember o_o) with you on the fact that this earth needs a good cleansing and returned to its state of well being…its just crazy to me how some ppl think that the very source of the earths abuse, is going to be the same source to fully repair it…and that’s literally impossible.
