On land and at sea radiation levels above normal in the hundreds or thousands of times

In the area of nuclear power plant accident due to the concentration of radioactive isotopes of iodine and cesium in the water and on land will be expanded area where the food supply is prohibited.

The concentration of radioactive iodine in seawater near the Fukushima-1 in 29.8 times higher than normal, the Kyodo news agency reported. Fishing near Fukushima-1 and Fukushima-2 is currently under way, authorities said the prefecture.

Japan Today, referring to the operator's Fukushima-1 company TEPCO, leads more information on the pollution of marine waters. Thus, iodine -131 was found on Monday in a sample of sea water in a concentration 126.7 times higher than normal. Levels of cesium-134 was 24.8 times higher, and the levels of cesium-137 16.5 times higher than standards. Also, in a sample of sea water, selected next to the station, was found cobalt-58 in trace concentrations.
What happens on an emergency Fukushima-1

On the bank of the situation also leaves much to be desired. IAEA experts have recorded radiation levels in the number of 161 mSv / h in Namie, Fukushima Prefecture, which is located 20 km from the station. This is a 1,600 times higher than normal. For 6.3 hours in this city you can get an annual dose of radiation.
Meanwhile, at the very fire and emergency stations Japan Self-Defense Forces are prepared to continue operations pump water to the pools of spent nuclear fuel reactor number 3 and number 4.
White smoke, and in fact all hope that the steam continues to rise from the reactor vessels number 2 and number 3. TEPCO believes that the smoke (or steam) will not prevent work on the restoration of electricity to the reactors. Recall that the electricity required at reactors one to four. Petersen hopes to connect the cable to the medium reactors number 1 and number 2, and by Thursday to restore power reactor number 3 and number 4.
Industry Minister of Japan is difficult to say that the situation at the plant is stabilized. He said this at a press conference in Tokyo.
Atomic Agency and safety of Japan at a press conference noted that currently only a third reactor was not connected to external power. However, the condition of the equipment at the other reactors, which is necessary for the supply of electricity has not yet been tested, despite the fact that the cable is connected. And equipment necessary to restore the control room at the station, which will more effectively eliminate the consequences of the accident. Currently, workers can stay in the infected area only a few hours.
Japan's defense minister at the press conference asked the help of the U.S. Army to eliminate the nuclear crisis in the country. He added that instead of twice a week, the Japanese Self-Defense Force helicopters will conduct daily measurements dramatically lowers the temperature of reactors. Exceptions will be made for rainy days, to reduce the risk of additional doses of radiation pilots. It is done all in order to pacify the population.
