Ground level at the base of the Fukushima No 1 and 2 reactors is now ABOVE THE MAX READINGS OF ANY GEIGER COUNTER AT 10 SIEVERTS/HOUR!
Again, for those who have not already done so, we urge our readers to do all that they can to protect themselves and their loved ones from the harmful effects of the continuing Fukushima radiation spewing across the Northern Hemisphere.
Tokyo Electric Power Co., operator of Japan’s crippled Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant, said it detected the highest radiation to date at the site.
Geiger counters, used to detect radioactivity, registered more than 10 sieverts an hour, the highest reading the devices are able to record, Junichi Matsumoto, a general manager at the utility, said today.
The measurements were taken at the base of the main ventilation stack for reactors No. 1 and No. 2.
Tepco sent three workers around the ventilation stack today after a gamma camera detected high radioactivity levels in the area yesterday, Matsumoto said. The workers were exposed to as much as 4 millisieverts during the work, he said.
