I came across this video which gives a different view. A birds eye view of where the Fukishima waste is being stored, the amount, and how close it sits to the Pacific Ocean.
Sorry this isn't a current event more of an ongoing event. Please move if necessary. Thank you

Thats the problem when Radioactive waste escapes containment. Every time you handle it you generate more waste in the form of gloves, suits, bags, loaders, trucks, etc. Every time it rains on site the runoff floods and overflows the basements and covers the site with a fresh layer of contamination, then they have to scoop it up and put it in bags all over again before they can go back to work.
People just don't understand there is no ridding the planet of it. It will outlive those sacks by many eons. Others who want it moved… to where, exactly? Your backyard? Inland? Then you have the problem of leaking or accidents on trucks littering the road with it on the way to the new site.
All one accomplishes is to spread it around more than it already is.
Nuclear power is a joke.
