Massive Radiation Spike at Fukushima From Typhoon Damage

As if another nuclear bomb has been dropped on Japan and the rest of the world, the MOX nuclear facility threatens the health of all living things.

JAPAN, FUKUSHIMA PREFECTURE (INTELLIHUB) — Thursday, a plant storage tank’s radiation readings spiked 6500 times above Wednesday’s mandatory daily reading after a typhoon struck the island inducing a shit-storm of deadly toxins onto the world’s populace by force. Thursday a major amount of toxic water  was released into the Pacific Ocean 2–1/2 years after the initial disaster as the government can’t decide to whether close the plant fast enough. But with profits on the line, closure is likely not an option on the table at this time.  

TEPCO admits that the disaster is tragic, but has failed to have the plant  entombed as suggested by the Russians.

Fish in the area have been found to be contaminated with radiation. Likely anyone downwind, including the U.S. is threatened by the disaster that continues to pollute the planet.

RT.com reported, “Experts believe that even a small earthquake could lead to more serious nuclear damage in the area.

“They have a thousand tanks that are held together with a plastic pipe, so if there is a moderate earthquake the plastic pipes will fail and all that material will run across the ground surface and into the ocean,” nuclear power expert Arnold Gundersen told RT.

“Facilities themselves, the four reactors that are the most damaged had a series of explosions internally, so it would not take an earthquake as big as the one they had two and a half years ago to potentially do a lot of serious damage there.”

He added that the health risks are great and continue to increase every year. “Somewhere between 100,000 to 1,000,000 [people] will over the next thirty years get cancer from this accident…1,000 additional cancers a year from eating fish from the Pacific.”

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s open request for advanced knowledge from overseas is a welcome step, as this will bring a higher degree of professionalism than Tepco has demonstrated since the crisis first erupted, Jacobs says. But even though, those experts will be at a loss to solve the immense problems they’ll be facing for decades at Fukushima.”[1]
