Radiation at Japan’s Fukushima Reactor Is Now at ‘Unimaginable’ Levels

Fox News

The radiation levels at Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant are now at “unimaginable” levels.

Adam Housley, who reported from the area in 2011 following the catastrophic triple-meltdown, said this morning that new fuel leaks have been discovered.

He said the radiation levels – as high as 530 sieverts per hour – are now the highest they’ve been since 2011 when a tsunami hit the coastal reactor.

“To put this in very simple terms. Four sieverts can kill a handful of people,” he explained.

He said that critics, including the U.S. military in 2011, have long questioned whether Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) and officials have been providing accurate information on the severity of the radiation.

TEPCO maintains that the radiation is confined to the site and not a risk to the public. It’s expected to take at least $300 billion and four decades to fix it.

Housley said small levels of radiation are still being detected off the coasts of California and Oregon and scientists fear it could get worse.

“The worry is with 300 tons of radioactive water going into the Pacific every day, what is that doing to the Pacific Ocean?” said Housley.

He added that critics are now questioning whether the radiation has been this severe all along.

      1. Mary, I am suspicious of these reports. It seems like fearmongering. Where is the island of debris the size of Texas that was supposed to wash up on the West Coast? It never arrived. Has there been a huge increase in radiation-related deaths in Japan or elsewhere?
        Because I am on the West Coast, I purchased a radiation monitor back then. The monitor shows normal levels – back then and now. Something doesn’t add up.

        1. pau, I am suspicious of you. Six years of meltdown and we finally get a couple of three minute reports and you call it fear mongering? Why are we not completely informed in reference to three reactors melting down and a scramble to dismantle a plant we were lead to believe was back to operational?
          TEPCO has been nationalized by the Japanese government, which has been lying about Fukushima for six years as the radiation has been pouring into the Pacific Ocean.
          Who are you and what is your agenda?

  1. Believe it or not…Mens hearts failing them for fear of those things coming upon the earth.

    Rev 8:8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
    Rev 8:9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

    Just think about the number of ship using those waters near Japan…thousands of them. The rest of the Trumpets have also gone off but who can see…Vials are in motion now. Remember what they had to do to aircraft carrier that was in the vicinity of Japan when Fukishima went off. The navy personnel on the a/c carrier were also affected and you hear nothing.

      1. And death and hell was cast into the lake of fire. The beast and the false prophet are death and hell…one carries forward the plans of the other…his bitch.

  2. A man with a death sentence and a government that won’t listen to him
    Can find themselves in a real predicament when that man realizes he has but 1 option before he is dead
    Creating the terminally ill , and than being surprised when it comes home to roost takes a certain kind of stupidity , the type of stupidity only found within governments and politicians
    And heads of state

    There’s going to be a party someday, I hope I’m still alive to be a part of it
