According to the company, on Monday in the area of the exhaust pipe between the first and second power plant radiation levels reached 10,000 millisieverts (10 Sv) per hour.
The reasons for such a sharp rise in radiation being investigated.
The highest level of radiation, and four thousand millisieverts per hour, the air in the "Fukushima-1" previously observed in early June due to a crack in the floor of the first unit in which one radioactive steam.
If a person receives the radiation dose of 500 millisieverts over a short period, it can cause the development of cancer. Dose of 1 sievert lead to acute radiation sickness, 1.5 Sv — to chronic radiation sickness.
Earlier in mid-July at a meeting of the joint Thurso with the Government Commission unveiled mid emergency plan for the period of three years. The plan calls for the transition to the second stage of the elimination, during which — from 3 to 6 months — will be completed by cooling the reactors and, depending on their condition, consider removing the standby to evacuate from a number of areas around the station. During the implementation of the medium-term plan, designed for 3 years, the company will remove fuel from the spent fuel pools.
March 11 earthquake and subsequent tsunami have stopped supply of electricity at the plant "Fukushima-1", which caused a number of accidents involving radiation leakage into water and soil. Nearly 80,000 people have been evacuated from 20-30 km zone around the plant. In vegetables, meat, tea, and other products from Fukushima prefecture and other areas fell a higher content of radioactive elements.
