Crippled Fukushima Reactor Springs Another Mysterious Leak

Common Dreams

Japanese media is reporting yet another mysterious and previously undetected leak inside one of the crippled nuclear Fukushima reactors this weekend.

According to Asahi Shimbum, citing an announcement from the Tokyo Electric Power Company, a “new water leak, possibly from the effort to cool a crippled reactor, has been detected on the first floor of a reactor building at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.”

It remained unclear whether the leak was coming from water coolant pipes being pumped into the containment unit or if radioactive water from the cooling pools themselves was leaking out.   

As the Japan Times reports:

The camera of a rubble-removing robot operating inside the No. 3 building has captured images of a 30-cm-wide water leak, the beleaguered utility said Saturday. It also claimed that none of the water has leaked outside the building so far.

Tepco, as the utility is known, is perpetually pumping water into reactors 1 through 3 to keep their melted cores cool, but leaks have been spotted in parts of No. 3′s containment vessel. Tepco is investigating whether the water spotted by the camera is actually the coolant.

The radiation level on the first floor of the No. 3 reactor is a relatively high 30 millisieverts per hour. Tepco said the amount of radioactive material in the just-found leak is unknown because the radiation in the reactor building is already high.

  1. I have a nagging feeling this was done on purpose as part of the depopulation agenda. Along with everything else that’s done on purpose to depopulate.
    There was a rumor that stuxnet had infested the plant. Was this ever substantiated?

    I also think they are going to make it unlivable topside and hide in their underground cities until it’s safe. This is an easy explanation for china’s ghost cities.

  2. For cryin’ out loud, why don’t they just say the damn Fukushima plant is melting down and get it over with. This is ridiculous.

    Every day, a new story comes out slowly like every other Communist rhetoric, “Yes today, we found a leak, but it is not melting down”.

    Next day, “Yes today, we found another leak and a blown out reactor, but it is not melting down”.

    Next day, “Yes today, the entire reactor is completely gone, but it is still not melting down”.

    Next day, “Yes today, another reactor blew up, but it is still miraculously not melting down”.

    Pretty soon, “Yes today, all of the reactors have blown up, but don’t worry, it is still not melting down” as their skin and hair are peeling off.

    Wake up, people! The damn thing is already in meltdown. They just refuse to say it because of the panic that would ensue and the elite just want to use it for their depopulation program. It’s right in your face.
