Leakage was detected in one of the pipes of the cooling system of the sixth reactor. Currently on-site emergency undergoing renovations. It is expected that the normal operation system resumes after one day.

Currently in the process of nuclear reactor cooling volumes containing radioactive particles of fluid daily increase to about 350 tons. The total volume stored in special containers and expected land clearing radioactive water is about 240 thousand tons.

In March 2011 in Japan occurred earthquake of magnitude 9.0, and then the coast of the country was hit by the tsunami. The victims of the disaster were about 20 thousand man. Natural disasters caused by accidents at nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1", where there were several explosions and radiation leak, says

In early August 2013, it became known that the plant "Fukushima-1" radioactive water began to wash over the underground barriers. Several repositories were erected around the power station after the accident. However, by August 2013 almost all of them were filled.
