FUKUSHIMA OPERATOR DISCOVERS PIPE LEAKING RADIOACTIVE WATER

0

TOKYO: The operator of Japan’s stricken Fukushima nuclear plant said on Sunday it had found highly radioactive water dripping from a pipe used to connect two coolant tanks, patching it up using tape. The discovery of the pipe came a day after Tokyo Electric Power Company said it found new radiation hotspots at four sites around coolant tanks, with one reading at 1,800 millisieverts per hour—a dose that would kill a human left exposed to it in four hours.
