Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Wednesday that it has found radioactive water leaking from a broken pipe connected to the No. 4 reactor of the crisis-hit Fukushima Daiichi power plant.
The utility is looking into the cause of the damage to the pipe and believes it may have some connection with the recent cold weather or the explosions that took place at the plant in the early phase of the nuclear crisis.
That’s quite a assumption, it either happened within the last few days or weeks, or it happened quite a while ago. Either way TEPCO doesn’t seem worried about it, and they don’t want anyone else to worry either.
They don’t really know what is going on inside, the explosion probably wrecked lots of pipes, that are just dangling by a thread, the cold weather and the elements are doing a good job of cutting that thread.
There is no way is Unit 4 going to remain intact for 30 years, but TEPCO knows that.
