Radiation in the sea water by the damaged nuclear plant Fukushima has been several million higher than allowed for a few days now, but according to Japanese government, does not represent immediate danger.

Radiation in the sea water by the damaged nuclear plant Fukushima has been several million higher than allowed for a few days now, but according to Japanese government, does not represent immediate danger.

Employees working on the Fukushima repair discovered a crack during the weekend, through which radioactive water is leaking into the Pacific ocean, and Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) running the NP stated that in the water sample taken on Tuesday close to one of the reactors they discovered 7.5 million time higher level of radioactive iodine than allowed, and it dropped to five million times more two days later, AP reported.

Experts estimate that it is unknown for now what will be long-term consequences of the increased radiation in the sea water, but fishing is forbidden in vicinities of nuclear complex.

TEPCO stated that high level of radiation in the sea do not pose immediate threat for the environment, but that they are working on stopping the leakage as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, according to BBC, officials in the Fukushima region started conducting emergency programme of measuring radiation levels in school yards.

During the next two days over 1,400 schools and kindergartens will be checked.

Officials stated that children can stay outside, accept in the zone 30 kilometres around Fukushima NP.

The number of victims after the devastating earthquake and tsunami that followed reached 17,668 – 12,321 persons lost their lives and 15,347 are unaccounted for.
