» New leakage found to flow into the ocean at Fukushima Daiichi

TEPCO said on Oct 2nd that it has found that an unspecified amount of water with a highly concentrated radioactive substance has leaked from another storage tank at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant and part of it may have reached the Pacific Ocean.

TEPCO detected 200,000 becquerels per liter of beta ray-emitting radioactive substances including strontium 90, far above the legal limit of 30 Bq per liter, as well as cesium 134 and 137 both within their legal limits.
