Radiation increases in Fukushima after new incidents at the plant

nuclear-japon The Japan Nuclear Safety Agency has ordered the evacuation of workers at the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear power plant due to the worrying increase in radioactivity levels after the latest explosions registered in its reactors.

The radiation level around the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant has slightly exceeded 10 millisieverts (or 10,000 microsieverts) at 10:40 a.m. (2:40 a.m. in mainland Spain). A few minutes later it descended again, and at 11:00 it was at 3.4 millisievert. It is still unknown if the rise is due to the damage suffered in reactor number two a day before or to new problems suffered by reactor number three.

In reference to the state of reactor four , which in recent hours has caught fire again , after it did so yesterday after a hydrogen explosion, Yukio Edano, spokesman for the Government of Japan, has indicated that the Government and the Electric Company of Tokyo (TEPCO) weigh whether the launching of water from helicopters is a good option to suffocate it, since it could be risky. The best alternative, in principle, would be to inject water from the ground gradually.
