+ - Radiation Spikes In Seawater Near Fukushima Plant ->

Submitted by RedEaredSlider
RedEaredSlider (1855926) writes "Radiation levels in the seawater near the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant have spiked, leaving observers to wonder if the reactor core has breached or if the spent fuel is leaking radioactive contaminants.

Tokyo Electric Power Corporation reported finding elevated levels of radioactive iodine, cesium, technetium, barium and lanthanum, at levels up to 1,200 times the allowed limits.

The Nuclear Industrial Safety Agency, confirmed that the two possible sources for the contaminants are the spent fuel rods or the reactor core. But there is no certainty yet, the agency said, as to which one it is."
