» Seems steam coming out of Fukushima plant

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said on July 18th a monitoring camera showed “something like steam” coming out of the No. 3 reactor building at Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant.

A worker first noticed at 8:20 a.m. from camera footage that vapor was rising from the central area of the fifth floor of the building and it had not stopped as of 11 a.m. It has confirmed that water injection into the stricken reactor and the spent fuel pool is continuing stably.

However, TEPCO noted that it has not seen any significant change in radiation levels.
