WEBCAM September 2018
#1
Post webcam observations for September here.  Observations should start with a date and ‘jst’ time (Japan Standard Time) and camera(s).  Describe as best as possible what you see.  Contribute data such as weather conditions, work activities, TEPCO or local news reports, radiation readings, earthquake activity, or any information that documents events occurring at Daiichi.  Comments and analysis welcome.  Help keep an eye on TEPCO's disaster site.

Tokyo admits first death resulting from 2011 Fukushima radiation exposure
RT
Wed, 05 Sep 2018 15:48 UTC
https://www.rt.com/news/437711-fukushima...ure-death/
Quote:A Japanese man in his 50s, who previously worked at the crippled Fukushima power plant, has recently died of a lung cancer. Japan’s Health, Labour and Welfare Ministry then acknowledged that his death was in fact triggered by a radiation poisoning and recognized his family as eligible for compensation in the first such case since the disaster.  

According to the ministry, the diseased worked mainly at the Fukushima plant, which was hit by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011 as well as at some other nuclear power station for more than 28 years until 2015. Notably, he was in charge of measuring radiation levels at the plant and its premises immediately after the incident, the Japanese media report.

It is said he was exposed to a total radiation dose of some 195 millisieverts – a dose that is about 4 times higher than the one that leads to a serious risk of developing cancer.

So far, the ministry also admitted that a total of four Fukushima plant workers developed various types of cancer, including leukemia and thyroid cancer, triggered by radiation poisoning. However, this was the first case involving death.  

When the meltdowns happened, people were dosed.  It didn't matter much if they stayed or tried to run away. Some evacuated into the fallout plume.  These people aren't counted in the statistic being offered by the Japanese ministry.  All the organs that are damaged by ionizing radiation don't count, only cancer is considered a risk of radiation poisoning.  With such a narrow view, radiation must be as safe as they say.   But, it's not safe.  Fukushima didn't just affect a few workers at Dai-ichi.  The leaking radionuclides continue to poison us all.  The radiated eco-system will not thrive and neither will we. How can we stop an industry from accidentally creating more dead zones when they treat us as just a statistic in their nuclear physics experiments?  

09-03 The remote crane by r1 moves another load.  That crane has been very busy most work mornings on the south side of reactor 1.  I wonder if they're building some structure or extension on the south side of reactor 1.  A lot of the crane activity has also been north of the vent tower.  

   

The crane in the foreground has workers popping into view.

09-03 The foreground crane suddenly does a 180, puffs a bit of diesel, and swings back.  Takes all of 10 minutes.

09-03  Spark count for two hours.  Slow to get started, only two the first half hour.  No distortions, low activity, yet I did find a spark pair.

09-15  I noticed on the cam1 monitor a spark frozen on the screen for a bit.  When I looked in the recording before the time I'd noted to check, I found the first spark of the night and it was a triple.  Wasn't any good going spark hunting because the recording became choppy.  I did find a spark at the time I'd noted.  The choppiness in the recording is probably the computer I'm recording with but it might have been the signal. It doesn't happen often enough or last long enough to connect it to a computer issue.  Lots of crane work around reactor 1 during the work days.  Catching three sparks on the screen at once doesn't happen very often.

09-18  Watched workers on the foreground crane on cam4.  On cam1, remote cranes were very busy around reactor 1 today.  The night before I noticed a strange look on cam4 and went to the recording to find out what it was.  It looked like a band of emissions on cam4 but I think it's a work light because of the way it started and stopped abruptly.  The same light seems to be on cam4 again this evening.

09-18  Cam4 has workers disassembling the crane in the foreground.  Cam1 has tools going in and out of reactor 1.  

   
   
   
   

This bird kept flying thru the scene.

   

This was the last load of the day coming out of reactor 1.

That bird doesn't know what its flying thru.  You had a good follow up in your twitter feed with microcarpa's chart.

The eastern half of Japan has bits of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactors all over. There's a bad part of Tokyo to get a room in.  Does the Olympic committee still think having athletes exposed to radio-cesium is a good idea?
