Fukushima: Holes In Containment Vessels Found – Deadly Radioactive Water ‘Gushing Out’ of Reactor 1 – Similar Damage Suspected At Reactor 2 And 3

H/t reader M.G.:

“HOLES in the containment vessels at Fukushima found by robot today.
The poisons have been gushing into the Pacific at worst levels than we have been told…….no wonder the fish and turtles are dead.
This is just outrageous!”

NHK: Holes near bottom of containment vessel identified for first time at Fukushima plant — “Gushing out” of Reactor No. 1 — Similar damage suspected at Units 2 and 3 (VIDEO) (ENENews, Nov 13, 2013):

NHK WORLD, Nov. 13, 2013: A robot at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has for the first time identified exactly where highly radioactive water is leaking from a reactor […] the lower part of the No.1 reactor’s containment vessel. […] A camera on the robot captured images of water leaking from 2 holes in the containment vessel […] TEPCO engineers […] say one of the leaks looks as if tap water is gushing out. Radiation levels in the area were extremely high at 0.9 to 1.8 sieverts an hour. Engineers suspect that damage to containment vessels at the No. 2 and 3 reactors is also causing similar leaks […]

Jiji Press, Nov. 14, 2013: […] “Part of the containment vessel is damaged, and water leaking from there is likely to be flowing down into the ground via the pipe,” a TEPCO official said. […] Water used to cool molten fuel debris is believed to be leaking from the three reactor containers, with highly radioactive water accumulated in the basements. The newly found incident is the first apparent identification of a containment vessel-basement flow […]

  1. Thank you for putting this story up…..the UK Guardian, until recently, one of the best news sources in the west, has no word on this……
    Since Glenn Greenwold left, the Guardian is beginning to resemble US media…..what a loss to those of us who want the real news.
    Why this story isn’t everywhere is beyond me. I turned on an ABC newscast yesterday at 5AM, after reading ABC was actually covering some of the Fukushima story. They told incredible lies! The radiation will be “too diluted” to harm us here in the west coast when it arrives in March, 2014.
    Disgusting liars. I don’t see how Americans can watch such crap.
    How do they explain the fact we have no sardines, the starfish are goo, the salmon are yellow and sea turtles are dying by the thousands? Simple. They don’t cover it at all.
    Thanks for staying on this story. There is a lot going on right now, they are trying to get inside of the reactors to start cleanup……not one word anywhere in US media.

  2. I agree with you Marilyn Gjerdrum, dont forget the tuna and the dolphins and the whales….. its the whole thing.

    Sorry to hear about your illness, but we may not be far behind you. Did you write,”Warrior Recollections: WORLD WAR II: As told by PFC Louis Albert Ables”?
    I do enjoy your comments.

  3. Hello John. Yes, I did write “Warrior Recollections: World War II ” as told me by my late friend, Louie Ables.
    Thank you for your kind words. What I find horrifying is that the silence on all media fronts, including the UK Guardian is unbroken by these stories. This is going on right now.
    I remember reading and hearing the nuts talk about people looking to depopulate the planet……I thought they were crazy. Now, I am beginning to wonder…….this completely irresponsible behavior with the lives of millions makes me wonder……..perhaps they are right?
