More fog spraying but with hanging equipment that was spraying around the outside spraying around the sides and inside around 12:30pm on 4-7-17. Watched it circle R1 and then noticed four men walking on R2 rooftop! Never seen that before.

I have seen workers on top of R2, but only very briefly.

NOTE:  It looks like they are wearing the 'darker' looking, probably lead, suits.

Checked cams, they seem okay today.
Sometimes I have to hit 'reload' the page, but it works for me.

Seems like a lot of activity.

Phew, they're back. Not reassuring but still, I'd rather have it that way.
Chasaha, you wouldn't believe how many times I tried refresh! Glad to see you here and great to signal people about the roofwalk on enenews.
People walking on #3 right now

04-12  Hey all, Tepco added another piece to the r3 puzzle.  
   
   

Then ten minutes later; vapor coming from the csfp area.

Pia, It looked like the csfp had steamed up again so I wasn’t too surprised to see another EQ in your retweets.  Uketukeman tweeted a reported 4.9 EQ on 04-09 07:20 jst at Fukushima and a report of more fractures on the north exhaust stack for units 1 and 2.  The EQ might explain the Fuku fogging and webs I saw on 4-11pm and the video of vapor coming from the csfp on 4-12am.  The 4-12 sunset had a lot of pink in it.  The EQ didn’t shake cam1 but it shook cam4 with hard jerks that I think might spill puddles out of the csfp.

That CSFP Steam-Up and Earthquake video is quite a catch Horse!

Don't know if anyone has seen TEPCO's library videos. You can see a close up of the work being done on R3 rooftop.

Nice to see the Tepco approved pictures of the bright shiny new rooftop on r3. That should help shield workers from the radioactive debris of that exploded mess of a nuclear reactor hiding underneath.

I do think that all that metal will help shield workers in that environment.  Looked at the video to see if it even looked like Dai-ichi.  Don't know what all the various pieces are; plating, raised platforms, openings to the pool area. The exploded mess, covered over.  The tongue in cheek; is that my sarcasm showing; hidden and covered up, that's all Tepco has really accomplished and that's the cynic in me.  They called it a roof but I think it's more of a work platform that will be covered over soon with the arch that supports a fuel removal crane.  Let's see how long it takes to get the spent fuel assemblies out of r3 sfp.  Can't wait for Tepco to stuff them in the common pool.  But we won't see much when the covers go on the r3 framework they're building, maybe some unexplainable Fuku fogging.  I thought I lost my sense of humor when tepco declared all the fuel was removed from sfp4. I hope they get as much fuel out as they can. 

unincredulous at ENE posted a good video of the tritium water leaking out to sea, probably from unit 1.  At about 8:50 in it shows the camera sparking.  Good graphics and explanation of that problem.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTQWwkds_e8

This device reminds me of Bullwinkle the Moose.

   
Where does all that radioactive metal go? 

-> Probably sold to China where it's made into eating utensils like forks and spoons and sold to the U.S.A. and elsewhere.

The growing global threat of radioactive scrap metal.

  • "Going shopping? Don’t forget your wallet and credit card. Or your Geiger counter."
  • "...shipments of contaminated goods, including cutlery, buckles and work tools such as hammers and screwdrivers..."
  • “The general public basically isn’t aware that they’re living in a radioactive world,” according to Ross Bartley
  • "India and China were the top sources of radioactive goods shipped to the U.S. through 2008, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Bartley, a metallurgist who has tracked radioactive contamination since the early 1990s, said there’s no evidence the situation has improved."
Angry   IMO - It's going to get much worse!

4-17 11:40 noticed men walking around on r3 again.  Here's a couple zooms so you can see the workers in white suits and the framework going up over r3.

Caught cam4 when it was raining at Fuku this morning around 22:30pm, 4-17-17. There is new red light on R2 platform and the CSFP was stirred up. After an hour the atmosphere is so saturated with yellow dots up close.

CSFP is definitely having problems. New flood lights surrounding the roof top were being tested on and off last night around 23:30pm. They eventually turned it off but I wonder if they have it set up for critical times because of the steaming and smoke lately.

   
   
Noticed this pinkish area showed up on around 1:50pm, R1.

Well I was curious what the Japanese blog had to say about the 4-12 smoke video, so I used google translate and looked around the site.  The translate isn't good but I get the gist; he's keeping an eye on tepco and doesn't like what he sees.  He reminds me too that so much of the radioactive contamination rained out and spread over a large area of Japan and we hear so little about the true magnitude of the health problems the Japanese are facing because of media censorship on both sides of the pond.  

Quote:Admit of no Grandpa's Flash memory. Also to try climbing up the tree and poured ice water on record.
Skip burning shed into the sea and F1 everything is crowded with history on the first big accident
I saw seems to erupt the afternoon 4/12/2017 in broad daylight, F1 campus live cam no. 4 receiver black smoke. Following is a screen shot from the VIMEO 04-12 1430 smoke.

Some years ago the black clouds had blown, but say diesel engine startup smoke at that time. We also start diesel engine?
In such a high position?
4/12/2017 because from now on is just a week ago. Plant accident round 6 years passed, contaminated water from ground spill, plant steam also up thick, jet black smoke during. Magic Tower hidden in the sky.
Collins billionaires plateau junction Highway 6 vehicles, construction vehicles, special-purpose vehicles. Such a situation continued 6 years, hustle and bustle does not show signs of slowing down.
In a world like this accident? World's first history from the scene of the catastrophe of the first proximity to our lives.
Squirt poison not secured yet.
Many people are keen on Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident and its impact abroad. More events listed in this article are original record F1 live video in foreign countries and is due to the results of a Visual check.
Would you still wearing that record in Japan. Fast forward video after a 24-hour period, you can if you have a single computer, can I check it
How to use simple measuring instrument having feel less so. Long-awaited us data and models of beta Ray shielding, indoor or outdoor, or if whether the incineration facilities located near the ground, time, weather, is added, it data is almost worthless.
To order the Japanese will perish, die. Have seen so that people know of health damage from radiation, focuses on the situation of the Japan overseas is not it.  


Dear readers outside Japan / Estimados lectores de este blog

The writer of this blog (myself) is a Japanese man with a varied professional experience who will turn 70 in a few years: I have worked in a large organization in Japan, have also worked abroad, have gone through redundancy, and worked in a part-time job at close to the minimum wage.

Now that I don’t work any more and that I’m in a fortunate enough situation where I don’t have to shiver from cold or starve, I thought I would use my spare time and experience for something useful for society and started a blog in 2005.

It has been a while since Japanese society stopped caring for the socially weak. The nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant has marked the final confirmation of this. We have been deprived of our humble pleasure of eating. Staying healthy has become a struggle. In other words, our right to health or even the right to life are being threatened. Threatened by the government and by some major firms. This angers me and my days are spent trying to fight against this situation so as to help this country go in a better direction.

It would be a great pleasure if I could share my concerns with you and that in doing so I were able to help this world, even if it is only in a small way.

Thank you for reading.

The graphs and tables in this blog are based on statistics of population dynamics, measurements of radiation in soil and food, and data from monitoring posts, all of which are provided by the government and municipalities.

Thanks for re-tweeting, Pia, it's a great pleasure to help him share his concerns.  His rant comes thru even if translate missed a few idioms.  I'd say he's a good ol' webcam watcher; would be great to get him on board.

04-21 22:30 Watching fog roll in and out of the cam views.  On cam 4 the fog looks like it comes from the csfp side like Califnative described a few days ago, but no rain visible on either camera.  22:50 cam4 looks a lot like vapor streaming out; not a uniform fog bank blotting the view.  22:57 c1 spark.  Cam 1 is fogging up fast but cam4 shows the fog inland on the csfp side and clear on the ocean side. Cam1 just had another spark and I've got other work to do.  Keep an eye out, maybe it's only weather.

Thought I'd add some pictures.  I found some sparks in that fogging, the first is a nice pair.  I was looking for the start of the fogging and it looks like the fog starts inland.  

04-21 212309 spark pair
04-21 212609 spark
04-21 213152 spark
