“Fukushima continues to be ignored by the press, but on site the Category 7 disaster only warrants 6 days attendance per week.
That’s right folks, we’re not open Sundays despite ongoing meltdown of 3 reactors! Duh!!!”

AP, Nov 26, 2017: Japan is poised to flood the Pacific with one million tons of nuclear water contaminated by the Fukushima power plant… The Japanese government is being urged by experts to gradually release radioactive water in to the Pacific Ocean… The water is stored on site in around 900 large and densely packed tanks and could spill should another major disaster strike. The government has been urged to release the water into the ocean… Local fishermen are extremely hesitant to this solution… Fumio Haga, a drag-net fisherman, said: ‘People would shun Fukushima fish again as soon as the water is released.’…

Sonoda, who voluntarily fled the contamination zone in wake of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster in March 2011, believes she had no other choice and was forced to move back to her village after the government revoked subsidies for those who voluntarily left the area.
A strong and shallow earthquake registered by the JMA as M5.9 hit Fukushima Prefecture, Japan at 14:56 UTC (23:56 JST) on October 6, 2017. The agency is reporting a depth of 50 km (31 miles). EMSC is reporting M5.4 at a depth of 60 km (37.3 miles); USGS M5.4 at a depth of 47.4 km (29.4 miles).
According to the USGS, the epicenter was located 28.4 km (17.7 miles) E of Iwaki (population 357 309), 46 km (28.6 miles) SSE of Namie (population 21 866), 52.9 km (32.9 miles) NE of Kitaibaraki (population 50 843), 60.3 km (37.5 miles) NE of Takahagi (population 33 576), and 96.9 km (60.2 miles) SE of Fukushima (population 294 237), Japan.
This is 33 km (20.5 miles) NNW of crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
And what could possibly go wrong?

Captured by an underwater robot on Saturday, footage released by plant operator Tepco shows for the first time what appears to be melted nuclear fuel inside one of the destroyed Fukushima reactors in Japan.
According to the Japan Times:
This is the first time Tepco has found something likely to be melted fuel. When the utility sent a different robot into reactor 2 in January, it found black lumps sticking to the grating in the primary containment vessel but said they were difficult to identify.
Under the plan the radioactive material tritium, which is being used to cool reactors whose cooling systems were damaged in the 2011 tsunami, will be released into the Pacific Ocean.
“I’m very sorry that Tepco has been prolonging making a decision,” the new chairman of Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings (TEPCO) Takashi Kawamura told reporters on Thursday, reported Reuters. “We could have decided much earlier, and that is Tepco’s responsibility.”
