TEPCO Finally Admits Landslide At Fukushima Daiichi 10 Days Later

landslide_131025_01TEPCO is now admitting publicly, a landslide at the plant that happened 10 days ago. We first heard of the landslide last week from former workers at the plant. The landslide happened as typhoon Wipha passed over the plant dumping considerable rainfall. The blocked road is one of the main roads into the plant. This shows not just the considerable vulnerability at Fukushima Daiichi, but at nuclear plants around Japan.

Nuclear plants such as Oi have only one road in and out of the plant. A landslide could make those plants inaccessible. In September a landslide did just that at the Monju nuclear plant.

This risk is largely unaddressed at Japan’s nuclear reactors, a plant could have access completely cut off during a disaster. This long delay in admission by TEPCO is another reminder how there is an utter lack of transparency and that much goes on at the plant without public knowledge.
