And no one’s covering it, as usual. Fukushima: Radioactive cesium levels jump 9,000 percent in just three days, nobody knows why Wednesday, July 24, 2013 by: Jonathan Benson, staff writer (NaturalNews) Some of the highest levels of ionizing radiation yet detected since the disaster first occurred were recently recorded at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility in Japan, according to shocking new reports. The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), which runs the crippled nuclear plant, says levels of radioactive cesium in a water well were 9,000 percent higher on July 8, 2013, than they were three days earlier, and nobody knows why this is the case. The Asahi Shimbun reports that TEPCO observed the spike after testing water in a well on the seaward side of Fukushima’s No. 2 reactor. At Fukushima, radioactive cesium spikes 9,000% in 3 days, no one knows why At Fukushima, radioactive cesium spikes 9,000% in 3 days, no one knows why
[Alert] Fukushima emission to reach Tokyo area from afternoon of 3/19/2013 Posted by Mochizuki on March 18th, 2013 · 1 Comment According to the meteorological agency of Switzerland, the emission from Fukushima would reach Tokyo area by wind after 15:00 of 3/19/2013.

A power cut shut down cooling systems for four spent fuel ponds at reactors 1, 3 and 4 on Monday evening, although cooling to the reactors themselves was not affected. All cooling systems were operational by early Wednesday morning, Tepco said.

New View from Inside Fukushima: Chaos and Uncertainty New View from Inside Fukushima: Chaos and Uncertainty Even in the early days of the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in March of last year, as the reactors spiraled out of control, the terse statements issued by the operator felt like an exercise in denial. Radiation readings were “higher than the ordinary level” (about 100 times higher), and a “loud noise and white smoke” had hit the No. 4 reactor (a possible hydrogen explosion). Now, footage released by the operator from the crisis’s early days – the second set of recorded teleconferences between the command center of the tsunami-hit plant and the company’s headquarters in Tokyo – demonstrates just how little those announcements reflected the chaos and uncertainty on the ground. The gap between the initial assurances given by company and government officials, and the ultimate scale of the nuclear disaster, has helped fuel a crippling public mistrust of government.

Chernobyl and Eastern Europe Blog: Nuclear Accidents Archives If you are one of the many people who believe that accidents at nuclear facilities are a thing of the past, think again. A friend passed along some information that France’s Tricastin nuclear facility has been temporarily closed after approximately 30 cubic meters (75 kilograms) of liquid containing unenriched uranium spilled from an overflowing reservoir. The liquid seeped into the ground and also reached the Gaffiere and Lauzon rivers. The Tricastin facility, which is operated by Areva/Socatri, is located at Bollene in the south of France, 40 km from the tourist city Avignon. Tricastin has both nuclear reactors and a radioactive waste treatment plant. Chernobyl and Eastern Europe Blog: Nuclear Accidents Archives
