Title: Another strontium leak at Fukushima nuclear plant
Date: Thursday, April 05, 2012 10:23 +0900 (JST)
Tokyo Electric Power Company says more radioactive wastewater has leaked from its Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. The water contained high levels of strontium.
[...] the company says some of the wastewater may have flowed into a ditch leading to the ocean.
TEPCO has apologized for the incident and says it will determine the cause and extent of the leakage. [...]
Title: Strontium at Fukushima plant flows into sea
