Fukushima Disaster Far From Over As Radioactive Water Pours Into the Pacific

Fukushima groundwater radiation levels up 90X

Daiichi Groundwater Radioactivity

Tokyo Electric Officials Don’t What Whether the Radioactive Water Is Flowing Into the Sea.
But Says It Probably Is

According to a report in the London Times, radiation levels of groundwater flowing from the wreck of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station have leaped 90x in the past few days. This is one more piece of alarming news from the FUBAR site, which is already running out of places to store the radioactive waterfrom ongoing attempts to keep the thing from melting down again. While TEPCO, the screw ups who have been more or less managing the clean up don’t seem to have a lot of information, Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) said it is “highly suspected” that radioactive water at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station had seeped into the ground and contaminated the sea.” (quote from Kyodo News agency).While authorities on both sides of the ocean seem intent on downplaying radiation issues, stories continue to surface in credible media. For example, Scientific American reports 40% of fish in the area off the coast of the nuke still contained unsafe levels of radioactive cesium. In January 2013, a fish was caught that contained 2500 times the legal amount of radiation.
