Probe at Japan's crippled nuke plant finds fatal radiation levels

 Published March 27, 2012 | Associated Press


A new probe at Japan's crippled nuclear power plant has found fatal
radiation levels and hardly any cooling water inside one of the reactors,
renewing concerns about the plant's stability.

The operator of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant says an endoscopic
examination Tuesday detected radiation levels up to 10 times the fatal dose
inside the No. 2 reactor's contain chamber, suggesting challenges ahead in
shutting down the facility.

The probe also found the containment vessel had cooling water up to only
about 2 feet from the bottom, far below the yards estimated when the
government declared the plant's stability in December.

Plant workers also reported fresh leaks of contaminated water from a water
treatment unit, some flowing into the ocean.
