Chongqing Radiation Leak?
<Unverified> Internal report shows leak at Chongqing nuclear power plant in China

There was a nuclear leak reported at a nuclear powerplant in Chongqing, China according to an internal (not public) report. This news has not been verified.
Some high-level managers had been evacuated after the internal report.
There is no Chinese official report on this.
The exact location was not specified, but there is one nuclear power plant found on Baidu.com called Chongqing Fuling Nuclear Power Plant located in Fuling, China.

Not much shows up in a google search for Chongqing nuclear.  China's largest smart city.  Vast underground nuclear facility, the pdf was interesting.  The declassified nuke site dug into a mountain shows how much effort China has poured into nuclear technology.  New reactors were built on fault lines.  There was mention of a couple different toxic chemical leaks in the industrial sector.  Not expecting to hear much more about any nuclear leak out of China.  Sound familiar, "issues with safety and transparency in the past."

Quote:Japan's nuclear crisis is likely to lead to greater scrutiny of the ambitious nuclear-energy plans in China, which is also prone to earthquakes and has had issues with safety and transparency in the past.

In the days since Friday's earthquake and tsunami initiated the crisis at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi power complex, Chinese officials have staunchly reaffirmed their commitment to nuclear power. They've said they plan to learn from Japan's experience, but also that China's modern program doesn't face the same risks as those...
