High-level radiation detected again at Fukushima Daiichi plant+, AP/Kyodo, August 2, 2011:
[... TEPCO] said radiation dosages of 5 sieverts per hour were detected indoors on the second floor of the No. 1 reactor at the plant. The amount is the highest figure for indoors.
The figure was detected in front of a pipe in an air-conditioning machine room, the utility said, adding the dosage may be larger than the measured amount as it exceeds the capacity of measuring equipment.
On Monday, Tokyo Electric said radiation doses of as high as 10 sieverts per hour were detected outside the buildings for the No. 1 and No. 2 reactors.
On Tuesday, Tokyo Electric also announced more than 10 sieverts per hour were detected near the scene. [...]
