New Flashing Lights at Fukushima Daiichi?

I have no idea whether the new flashing lights are indicative of changing conditions at the plant. I do believe they are on the cranes and I've noted in the past that flashing lights often coincide with reported problems at the plant and/or emission events.

Lights in frame below are not ordinarily on. The light to the left is flashing.

See that the light to the left is off (flashing on and off)

Big light on top off now

What I'm concerned about is rising radiation levels at the site. I find it interesting that Japan's former ambassador to Switzerland, Mitsuhei Murata, has come out and said that suspected criticalities at Fukushima need to be examined and verified or dis-confirmed. (see here). Mr. Murata is very brave and has been outspoken throughout the disaster. I wonder why he is stressing the criticalities now?

The Japanese media and Fukushima Diary are reporting problems in the vicinity of unit 2, which Jiji reported has an area measuring 9.4 sieverts (no time frame for exposure provided). 9.4 sieverts will kill you very quickly. Fukushima Diary is reporting rising strontium levels in a well between reactor 2 and the sea.

9.4 Sieverts Detected outside Fukushima Reactor Containment Vessel. JiJi. 2015/10/29-23:00)
Tokyo, Oct. 29 (Jiji Press)--Tokyo Electric Power Co. <9501> said Thursday that radiation levels of up to 9.4 sieverts per hour have been detected outside a reactor containment vessel at the meltdown accident-hit Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant. …  Checks conducted on Sept. 4-25 found the extremely high radiation levels at a cell which accommodates a pipe connected to the containment vessel of the No. 2 reactor at the plant devastated by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, TEPCO said.  The highest contamination was detected on the floor. …

Sr-90 density increased over 2.5 times in groundwater beside Reactor 2 nov 2 2015
On 10/30/2015, Tepco announced the Strontium-90 density reached the highest level at one of the observation wells beside Reactor 2. The sample groundwater was collected at the observation well called “No.1″, which is situated between Reactor 2 and the sea.The previous highest reading was 2,800,000 Bq/m3 of 8/3/2015, but it increased to 7,100,000 Bq/m3 on 10/1/2015.  The well is beside the pump to collect overflowing groundwater. There is a possibility that increased Sr-90 was gathered in this pump area to be detected.



  1. I suppose a species might opt for suicide? Is that what is going on now? "Poisoned Agriculture: Depopulation and Human Extinction" --
    "A new paper by Rosemary A Mason in the ‘Journal of Biological Physics and Chemistry’, indicates that a ‘sixth extinction’ is under way (the Holocene extinction, sometimes called the Sixth Extinction, is a name describing the ongoing extinction of species during the present Holocene epoch - since around 10,000 BCE). In her paper, ‘The sixth mass extinction and chemicals in the environment: our environmental deficit is now beyond nature’s ability to regenerate’, she argues that loss of biodiversity is the most urgent of the environmental problems, as biodiversity is critical to ecosystem services and human health. And the main culprit is the modern chemical-intensive industrialised system of food and agriculture."
    Unfortunately we who take the trouble to find these things out find it nearly impossible to pass this information on. I am generally met with a shield of refusal . . . in some cases the person simply can not bear any more bad news. In other cases the person refuses to leave their safety zone. Nice thing about the net is the those who wish to know can find things out. I'm grateful.

  2. Majia, I did notice cranes working late into the night. The third pic at 4:01 shows a glow over the plant. I've noticed that steam/fog, whatever, reflects more light in the sky, like that glow. Think they might be doing early morning releases.

  3. in case anyone is interested there is an epidemic of gi distress goin on across us. probly from rads killing all probiotics in guts and patho closteridium and myco bacteria moving into colon. people w cramps fever ibs colitis chrons like sx divirticulitous
