Indie | ENENEWS | 2 August 2011

Highest levels of radiation since March 11 detected at Fukushima nuclear reactors, Mainichi Daily News, August 2, 2011:


[…] TEPCO needs to rigorously check to see whether high radiation doses are spreading elsewhere […]

Three plant workers […] confirmed the radiation doses [detected near the surface of an exhaust pipe between the No. 1 and 2 reactors at levels exceeding the 10 Sievert per hour maximum of the measuring equipment] at about 2:30 p.m. on Aug. 1. […]

In a related development, TEPCO said on Aug. 2 that there were two more pipes nearby that apparently showed radiation in excess of 10 sieverts. The utility said it had not actually measured the radiation there and it had no plans to do so because there would be no one working there. […]
