An new leak has been found at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. Radioactive water has overflowed from a drainage channel, spilling into the ocean. Apparently, the authorities are blaming heavy rain.
The new leak was reported by NHK World on July 16, 2015. It is unclear when the new leak was discovered and there have been no reports of it being stopped.
A screenshot from the original NHK World report says TEPCO “cannot stop the spill anytime soon”.
It appears the original report included more details that have since been scrubbed from the NKH World english website. Both ENEnews & WND quote NHK World as saying “samples taken from the channel about 2 hours later contained 830 becquerels per liter of radioactive cesium” but this information is not currently included on the NHK World website.
