DW, Oct. 10, 2014: Is Fukushima capable of withstanding a super typhoon?

Nuclear expert Michael Maqua, Oct. 10, 2014: “Expect radioactive isotopes… transported into the groundwater or the sea… The main risk of the typhoon is… mainly [at] reactor 3… rain water will [likely] mix with the contaminated water in the basements of the reactor buildings and thus more radioactivity could be washed to the sea.”
