Just weeks ago a TEPCO official declared a state of emergency at Fukuhima, saying that things could become worse than ever at the plant.

Over the years since the disaster initially occurred there have been mixed signals from the governments of the world and their affiliated scientific organizations.  However most independent investigations have shown that things are far more serious than the media has been telling the public.

Additionally, recent radiation readings at and around the site suggest that radiation levels are actually rising.[1]  In the midst of this crisis, the Fukushima region is experiencing another natural disaster.

A typhoon just reached the shore near Fukushima this morning, and is predicted to cause deeper complications to the contaminated water in the area.

ABC News reported that “TEPCO workers at the plant are battening down the site as the typhoon approaches.  They have attached ropes to outdoor piping and pumps, and are using large weights to try to prevent cranes from possibly toppling over.  With torrential rains expected this afternoon, there are fears that more contaminated water will seep into the groundwater and flow into the sea.”[2]

According to The Australian “the typhoon made landfall this morning in Toyohashi, Aichi prefecture, packing gusts of up to 162km/h, the Japan Meteorological Agency said….The typhoon, moving north-northeast at a speed of 45km/h, is expected to head towards the capital and its surrounding region later today, the agency says…. The agency issued the highest alert for “possibly unprecedented heavy rain” in Kyoto and its adjacent prefectures, warning residents in danger zones to evacuate to shelters.”[3]

Throughout the whole entire meltdown process TEPCO and the Japanese government have downplayed the environmental impact of the Fukushima disaster.

One politician was even arrogant enough to drink radioactive water, in a desperate move to save credibility for the government.[4]

All parties involved behind the scenes are remaining completely silent, although the Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission (NAIIC) has already concluded that the nuclear disaster at Fukushima was “a profoundly man-made disaster that could and should have been foreseen and prevented.”[5]

In contrast to the official reports coming from the government and the power company, test after test has shown that the meltdown has had a significant impact on the surrounding area.
