News Picks : Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant suffers another leak

By: Physics Today
20 February 2014
BBC: Yesterday some 100 tons of highly radioactive water leaked from a storage tank at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant. Ever since being damaged in the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, the plant has suffered multiple problems, including leaks and power cuts. This leak was not as severe as the one last August, which released about 300 tons of radioactive water. According to Masayuki Ono, a spokesman for the Tokyo Electric Power Company, which operates the plant, the leaked water is unlikely to reach the ocean, and the company is in the process of cleaning up the spill.
