The Fukushima-1 was another explosion

The explosion occurred at 06:10 am local time (00:10 Moscow time) on Tuesday at second power plant "Fukushima-1". There is a danger that the damaged cooling system, said Tuesday the Ministry of Economy and Industry of Japan. Representatives of "Tokyo Electric Power" reported that the radiation level in the area of nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1" up to a level of 965 microsieverts per chas.Chasti working at the reactor personnel ordered to evacuate. However, according to the Japanese authorities, the level of radiation from the explosion at the second power is not dangerous to human health, according to ITAR-TASS. Japanese

Accidents involving the diversion of chemical substances in the world in 2012-2013

February 25 at a chemical plant in Guizhou Province in southwest Kitayaproizoshel explosion, five people were injured, about 29,000 people have been evacuated. On the causes of the explosion are still unknown, refers only to the "brain" of a substance, which ignited. According to eyewitnesses, the roar of the explosion was very strong, the flame height on the spot fire reached 100 meters.

February 17 At the departmental branch Sredneuralsky smelter with 12 derailed tank with sulfuric acid. Two tanks of acid spilled on an area of 100 square meters. The accident on the business is not affected. According to

The nuclear incident at the plant in Belgium

The incident that has been assigned the second level on the international scale, occurred on Friday at the plant in the Belgian Dule. The problem arose with the water pump fourth power station. According to the energy company Electrabel, the problem was quickly fixed. The incident did not affect the smooth functioning of the plant facilities, or the health of its workers and residents module, assured energy.

In Belgium has seven nuclear reactors. In 2010, the Belgian nuclear incident occurred on 17 — five more than last year. But it was mostly irrelevant to nuclear safety alarms are registered. According

The second unit Fukushima summed LEP

Emergency operator Japanese nuclear power plant "Fukushima" Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) connected power line (PL) suffered the station and an external source of electricity. Electricity with the system were immediately energized the second unit, which is the least affected, reports the BBC BBC referring to the American media.

TEPCO representatives made it clear that the electricity needed to perform better cooling system damage at the plant.

According to Kyodo, the engineers at the moment are doing their best to restore electricity in the second reactor to on Saturday March 19 earned cooling system.

Meanwhile, Japanese rescue workers prepare

The situation at the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant is out of control

The situation in the nuclear power plant emergency, "Fukushima-1" on Friday continued to worsen, resulting in the Agency for Nuclear and Industrial Safety of Japan (NISA) raised the level of risk of nuclear accident from the fourth to the fifth of the seven levels on the International Nuclear Event Scale (INES). Also considering building a concrete sarcophagus around the station.

The fact that the situation is out of control and the statement of evidence of independent, third-party experts. As stated on Friday, the head of "Rosatom" Sergey Kiriyenko, the experts do not control the situation in the

Japanese frantically cooled reactor, there is no information — the result is obvious

Emergency situation around the nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1" in Japan over the past day has not demonstrated a certain dynamics. The whole world is still frozen in anticipation of the worst, comments of experts from Europe and the U.S. are much more pessimistic and gloomy than the ones that give the IAEA and the Japanese government. The latest data and pictures from the scene of the accident: over the reactor number two columns of white smoke rises. The representative of the Agency for Nuclear Safety Japan Hidehiko Nishiyama said the smoke could be caused by overheating of spent nuclear

In Chicago, flew Radiation from Japan

Traces of radioactive contamination have been found in the plane and the luggage of passengers arriving at the Chicago International Airport in Japan, according to Radio "Mayak" referring to the television station C-PBS.

However, the level of radioactivity recorded is estimated as insignificant. Traces of radiation were found on the clothes of several passengers of the flight, arriving in baggage, as well as the ventilation system aircraft.

The representative of the United States in Chicago aviavlastey Rosemary Andolini said that security officers check passengers all arriving flights and the cabin, using portable dosimeters. However, according to the airport customs officers,

At the nuclear plant Fukushima-1 in Japan to eliminate the consequences of the accident joined the military

Helicopters dump water on the overheated reactors, but on the ground preparing the powerful water cannon. In an emergency order is supplied back energomagistral to repair elektoronasosy and try to run the cooling system. True, simultaneously working in a hurry cut the cable ties on which the operational headquarters received data on the state units. Now it has been restored.

Radiation levels above the emergency station "Fukushima" is such that the helicopter pilots in the air is allowed no more than 40 minutes. According to experts in order to discharge water temperature led to a reduction in the

The radioactive cloud from Japan tomorrow will cover the U.S.

A cloud of radioactive contamination from the Japanese nuclear power plant emergency, "Fukushima-1" gets to the U.S. on March 18. With such a forecast made by the experts of the Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty at the United Nations. Experts suggest that on March 17 the radiation plume will cross the Pacific and affect the Aleutian Islands, and in the evening on March 18 will cover Southern California and southwestern United States, including Nevada, Utah and Arizona. The experts say that the level of contamination is low and will not significantly affect the health of people in

Fukushima: 70 percent of the melted reactor core

The death toll from the earthquake in Japan has exceeded 4000 100. These data are reported in the Japanese police. Missing — almost 8000. These numbers are constantly growing. Meanwhile, the IAEA said that the nuclear power plant accident in Fukushima began melting of nuclear fuel in several reactors. Experts call this situation Meltdown. In a worst case scenario, radioactive gases can destroy the protective barriers and enter the atmosphere. A giant column of smoke — another confirmation: the situation at Fukushima is out of control. That night — a new fire. All of the staff were forced to
