Close-up of damage at crisis-hit Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant
Close-up of damage at crisis-hit nuclear power plant
A video provided by the Japanese government shows footage taken at the crisis-hit Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant. It has been learned that water containing high levels of radiation has been gathering on the floors of turbine buildings of the plant's No. 1, 2 and 4 nuclear reactors. The news comes after three emergency workers were exposed to radiation at the No. 3 reactor. In the No. 2 reactor in particular, radiation of more than 1,000 millisieverts per hour -- more than 1,000 times the maximum limit of radiation an ordinary person is allowed to be exposed to in a year -- was detected on the water's surface.

Tsunami earthquake that occurred in East is East and reached the coast around within 10 minutes after the earthquake, it might be a dozen or more meters in height climbed up, Takashi Komura of Tokyo Earthquake Research The analysis found the professors office. Komura and his colleagues, based on an analysis of the U.S. Geological Survey, 600 km from north to south in the first earthquake, assuming the fault moved 17 m 250 km east to west. Reproduced in the computer generation and the conduction of the tsunami. As a result, the tsunami waves began pulling slightly to the side of the Pacific Ocean coast of Ibaraki Prefecture, Iwate Prefecture, early arrival at less than 10 minutes. Typically, the tsunami is transferred from the epicenter in concentric circles, and fast reach closest to the epicenter, the earthquake has long since moved north and south leading to the offshore area off Sanriku Ibaraki, almost simultaneously reached the coast of East that there is a possibility.

Footage shows tsunami hitting Iwate city
Mobile phone footage provided to the Mainichi by a reader shows a massive tsunami striking the city of Kamaishi, Iwate Prefecture, on March 11, 2011.
Radioactive material was released by TEPCO Fukushima first nuclear accident, how to spread in North America and Europe take the strong westerlies, Kyushu University, reproduced by computer simulation, such as Tokyo University team. Online Journal of Meteorological Society of Japan issued nearly "SOLA" to announce. http://mainichi.jp/select/science/news/m20110623k0000m040062000c.html
