Tons of Radioactive Water Flowing From Fukushima!

5 posts in this topic

Oh here we go again. There have been unprecedented rains in Japan over the past few days causing hundreds of tons of radioactive water from Fukushima to pour into the ocean. We all know that TEPCO lies so I would suspect its way worse than they are reporting!

 

Heavy rain causes floods; sends tainted water from Fukushima plant into sea

A city in Ibaraki Prefecture was flooded Thursday when a raging river burst its banks, destroying homes and cars as desperate residents waited for help, and as thousands of people were ordered to evacuate.

Dramatic television footage showed a wall of muddy water gushing from the swollen Kinugawa River in Joso city, which is home to around 65,000 people.

Several people are reportedly missing across the country as waist-high floods in some areas left rescuers scrambling to pluck residents to safety as a wide area was deluged in the wake of Typhoon Etau.

The torrential downpour has also exacerbated a contaminated water problem at the Fukushima nuclear plant as it overwhelmed the site’s drainage pumps, a spokesman for operator Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) said.

Hundreds of tons of contaminated water have flowed into the ocean, he added.

TEPCO is storing huge volumes of water used to cool reactors that were sent into meltdown when a tsunami hit Japan in 2011.

“This is a scale of downpour that we have not experienced before,” forecaster Takuya Deshimaru told an emergency press conference.

Fukushima tainted water flows into ocean

Rainfall reached 600 millimetres in the area around Joso, with weather officials expecting at least 200mm more in parts of eastern Japan, including Fukushima, the site of the nuclear reactor crippled in 2011, before the downpour stops on Friday.

The torrential downpour has exacerbated a contaminated water problem at the Fukushima nuclear plant as it overwhelmed the site's drainage pumps, sending hundreds of tonnes of contaminated water flowing into the ocean, a spokesman for operator Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) said.

No need for Japan to drink radioactive water.  Here is a solution.
