ACRO’s Citizen Watch on radiation found radiation in the urine of a child living in Tokyo. They 8 year old boy was tested in late October, both cesium 134 and 137 were found in his urine. ACRO is estimating this was due to contaminated food in his diet.
UPDATE: A look back at old TEPCO documents shows unit 1 at Fukushima Daini (Fukushima II), had an increase in reactor containment pressure at 6:08pm March 11. All four units at Daini appear to have been subsequently vented as their suppression chambers were over 100 degrees Celsius and ceased working.
The other bit of bad news this morning. The containment of one of the reactors at Fukushima Daini (Fukushima II) has been found to be broken. An expert in metallic materials made the statement and went on to state that the earthquake caused the containment damage and TEPCO is currently trying to repair it. What is not 100% clear right now, if they are referring to the concrete and steel containment bulb or the steel reactor pressure vessel. We are currently going with the assumption they meant literally the containment vessel (PCV) not the reactor pressure vessel (RPV). Sometimes between casual phrasing and translations “containment” is used interchangeably. Damaged containment (PCV) on a much newer reactor design is a very bad sign for reactor reliability in general. This calls into question why the public is just finding this out now and why they are finding it out through an academic experts and not through TEPCO and the government. There were worker reports of smoke coming from the reactor buildings at Daini after the initial quake.
On March 14 radiation rose at Daini, TEPCO claimed it was due to radiation from Daiichi.
Smoke was also seen coming from a turbine building at Daini on March 30th.
