Jun. 14, 2012
Tokyo Electric Power Company says it has detected extremely high levels of radiation on a floor just above the No. 2 reactor at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant.
The company said a reading of 880 millisieverts per hour of radiation was detected on the fifth floor, which is 4.5 meters above the reactor containment vessel.
TEPCO suspects radioactive substances leaked from the No. 2 reactor moved through the location.
During the Fukushima nuclear accident the No. 2 reactor is believed to have released the largest amount of radioactive substances.
