7th of April – Leak

New leak reported at Fukushima nuclear plant

The second storage tank at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan may have leaked, the facility’s operator said. A day earlier, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) stated up to 120 tons of contaminated water may have leaked from one of the underground tanks. The water isn’t expected to reach the sea, but the incidents follow a glitch in the cooling system only a fortnight ago, when a massive power outage caused the plant’s cooling system to fail for 29 hours.
