Now, there is a problem at Reactor 6 it seems, though that one was suppose to be in very stable condition.
7 tons of water has leaked from the reactor. They don't say where it leaked to in the article on NHK.
Besides the revelation 7 tons of water has leaked from Reactor 6. TEPCO did not properly maintain the water pipes for the reactors for cold weather. I am at a loss for words in how could they possibly not take care of the pipes. TEPCO needs to be put out of business immediately! If they can not take care of winterizing pipes and taking precautions for winter weather at a Nuclear Power plant that is already in melt down mode, what are they doing with all their other nuclear power plants in Japan?
You have to wonder if the "Three Stooges" are in charge of the plant.
There have been 14 leaks due to the pipes bursting from cold weather at Fukushima. They are making things worse than what they already are, from their ineptness.
Tokyo Electric Power Company has found water leaks in 14 locations at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.
The utility says the leaks apparently occurred after frozen water ruptured the pipes and the leaked water did not contain any radioactive materials.
Tokyo Electric said about 40 liters of water leaked from a cooling system for a spent fuel pool at the No.4 reactor on Sunday, but the flow stopped when workers closed the valve.
The company said the leak forced the system to stop for one hour and 40 minutes, but the pool's temperature did not rise.
Tokyo Electric said 7 tons of water had leaked from the No.6 reactor.
The temperature fell to minus 8 degrees Celsius on Sunday morning near the damaged plant.
Ruptured pipes caused 3 water leaks on the previous day.
Tokyo Electric official Junichi Matsumoto admitted that the utility failed to take sufficient steps to prevent frozen pipes. He said it will take quick action to protect the pipes from the cold weather.
