New radioactive plumes from Japan.

There is a new spate of emissions from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. A new record of 550,000 Bq/liter of all-β radionuclides (including strontium-90) has been measured in groundwater near the E-1 tank.

There was an event on Nov. 3 and 4 that caused a spike of radiation in Fukushima city. An individual in Tokyo was exposed to rainwater on his feet on Nov. 7, causing itching and the skin damage seen in the photo.

Radiation spiked in Hokkaido starting Nov. 9, continuing until the 10th. Kyoto spiked on Nov. 11.

I don’t know if these are two separate events, or the same one. There have been a series of small to moderate earthquakes in Japan lately, so these spikes may be connected to that. Or it may be a new criticality. The map at netc.com is lighting up in the southwest US.

There are more radiation graphics from Japan here.

A mushroom with 430,000 Bq/kq of cesium was found in Minamisoma in October. This is higher than any the concentration of any mushroom I have read about from the Chernobyl exclusion zone. The highest was 280,000 or so… generally much lower than this.

I want to include the following video, the testimony of a brave lady who evacuated from Fukushima with her children, leaving her elderly parents behind.

    Knew something was wrong the moment I woke up with headache and metallic taste. Currently at 321cpm and rising smack in the middle of Los Angeles. It’s as if I can feel it rising. Question for me is if this is Day 1 – how on earth can we stay here?

    In the San Francisco Bay Area, yesterday, my 9 year old said, as she walked outside, “I can taste the radiation today.” How messed up is our world? We have to get out of here.

    I posted yesterday about the “laundry smell” on the radiation forum, today is more difficult to describe…maybe smokey…but not exactly, do you know what I mean, rakingmuck?http://enenews.com/japan-physician-i-hope-adults-will-evacuate-tokyo-not-just-children-strange-things-happening-medications-dont-seem-to-work-rare-diseases-increasing-dramatically-video/comment-page-1#comment-409645

  2. A record high level of 710,000 becquerels of beta-ray sources, such as radioactive strontium, was detected per liter of water in an observation well at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant.

    Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Nov. 12 the water was taken Nov. 10 at the well 10 meters north of a tank that leaked 300 tons of highly contaminated water before the problem was discovered in August.

    The previous high reading of 550,000 becquerels per liter was found in water sampled Nov. 9 at the same well.

  3. Yes a plume is over the southwest

    What is happening?

    Units 1 – 4 have not had major emissions recently that I’ve seen on the webcams. The major pixilation event may have been off screen or underground. Maybe the recent 7.2 earthquake caused problems with defueling of units5 and 6. Or maybe the rising rads are from underground melted fuel. Ideas?

  6. According to the EPA’s Radnet data, we’ve had beta spikes between 450 and 600 cpm beta here in Phoenix (under the jet stream) over the last couple of weeks. The largest spike was on October 28. October 25 was the earthquake and smoke was spotted on the TBS webcam but it seemed to be coming from the area of units 5 and 6. Private monitoring and EPA data across the country are detecting rising radiation levels.

  8. The father of a Carmel High School football player died Friday night after suffering a medical emergency during his son’s playoff game — where the junior running back scored the game’s final touchdown.

    Eric Paschell fell ill during the fourth quarter of the game and was carted away by medical crews, said Carmel High School Athletic Director Jim Inskeep. He died at an area hospital shortly after…

    The tragedy came at the end of a night already marred by a series of bizarre medical emergencies, including two in the second quarter. With about nine minutes to play before the half, fans watched in horror as referee Joe Calderazzo collapsed on the field.

    “He fell to his knees and really did a faceplant right onto the turf,” Inskeep said. “It was clear from that point that he was non-responsive. And he was not breathing either.”…

    While Calderazzo was being treated, Inskeep said another person — a fan in the Carmel stands — started seizing. That person was treated on site, Inskeep said.
