ENews: 10+ sieverts per hour means there is direct exposure to fuel rods or spent fuel ponds: Australia’s former top radiation official http://enenews.com/10-sieverts-hour-means-direct-exposure-fuel-rods-spent-fuel-ponds-australias-former-top-radiation-official
The fuel appears to have not simply melted down and through the reactor vessels, but now it seems fuel may be melting out.
Fukushima is truly unprecedented and it appears that no one really knows how to contain this mutagenic fuel.
NHK reports also on this high radiation:
NHK: Highest radioactivity level detected at nuke plant
The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says it has detected 10,000 millisieverts of radioactivity per hour at the plant. The level is the highest detected there since the nuclear accident in March.
Workers of Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, on Monday measured the extremely high level of radioactivity near pipes at the bottom of a duct between the No.1 and neighboring No.2 reactor buildings.
According to the science ministry's brochure, if a human received 10,000 millisieverts, they would likely die within a week or two.
Majia Here: Meanwhile radioactive contamination continues to be dispersed throughout Japan
NHKGovt sets new criteria for contaminated fertilizer:
Japan's government has laid down a new set of criteria for the use of fertilizers that may be contaminated with radioactive cesium.
On Tuesday, the agriculture ministry urged farmers not to use humus and compost that contain 400 becquerels of cesium per kilogram or more.
It also called on them not to use livestock feed containing 300 becquerels of cesium per kilogram or more. For fish feed, the limit was set at 100 becquerels per kilogram...
Last week, the agriculture ministry asked famers and fertilizer producers in 17 prefectures in eastern and central Japan to voluntarily refrain from using or selling compost and humus made from fallen leaves possibly contaminated with radioactive cesium.
This was after humus shipped from Tochigi Prefecture was found to be contaminated with radioactive substances.
