Japan: Extremely High Levels Of Radiation Found Inside Reactor 2 Housing, TEPCO Can’t Find Source Of Leak
NHK – “Workers at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi plant seem to come across new problems and new challenges every day at the damaged nuclear facility. Their latest find: extremely high levels of radiation inside the building that houses reactor 2. Tokyo Electric Power Company engineers sent a robot into the building Wednesday to take video and measure radiation. TEPCO’s spokespersons say instruments detected a reading of 880 mSv/hr on the fifth floor. The area is 4.5 meters above the reactor containment vessel. TEPCO analysts suspect radioactive substances that leaked from reactor 2 moved through the location. But the images and data taken by the robot haven’t helped them find the exact route the contaminants travelled…”
Tokyo Professor: Deformities in cedar trees may be from Fukushima radiation — Sex abnormalities, malformed branches – “Mori explains that some branches bear only male flowers while others bear only female flowers. But what he found in the cedar tree in Hitachinaka City was asymmetrical, malformed branches with both male and female flowers… Professor Mori suspects that the growing point of the cedar tree was irradiated, and that resulted in the developmental anomalies you see in these photos. He says more samples are needed to definitely conclude the anomalies are the result of irradiation.” Read more.
