Around 100 tons of highly radioactive water leaked from one of the tanks at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, the plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) said on Thursday.
The water reportedly spilled beyond the barrier that is set up to block it from flowing out of tanks.
The leak was discovered by workers on patrol at around 11:25 p.m. local time on Wednesday.
So what's the extent of the devastation if the 100 tons were to make it to sea?
Juan Carlos Lentijo, head of IAEA’s mission to Fukushima Daiichi, Dec. 4, 2013: “Controlled discharge is a regular practice in all the nuclear facilities in the world. And what we are trying to say here is to consider this as one of the options to contribute to a good balance of risks and to stabilize the facility for the long term.”
Probably 3 times that amount and it is also highly probable that it leaked directly into the Pacific via a hose they attached to drain the tanks. Not buying they bologna anymore.
