Radiation 10 Million Times Above Normal Level At Fukushima

The Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) has reported that radiation level in the containment building of reactor number 2 at the stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant is an astounding 10 million times above normal.
Officialdom soon backtracked  and said those radiation readings were not accurate and that new tests had been ordered. “The number is not credible,” said TEPCO.
Last week, Japan’s nuclear agency said levels of radioactive iodine in sea near the plant had risen to 1,850 times the usual level. It claims one-half a liter of the water contains the same amount of radiation that a person can safely be exposed to in a year.
The United Nations’ nuclear agency has warned the crisis could go on for months.
It now appears the crisis will go on indefinitely. TEPCO said on Sunday it is not working to resolve the crisis. “We are examining the cause of this, but no work is being done there because of the high level of radiation,” said a TEPCO spokesman . “High levels of caesium and other substances are being detected, which usually should not be found in reactor water. There is a high possibility that fuel rods are being damaged,” he added.
Appearing on Sunday talk shows, cabinet secretary Yukio Edano  said radioactive water is “almost certainly” seeping from a reactor core.
