(UPDATED) Just In, from TEPCO's Tweet: High Levels of Strontium, Tritium in Groundwater Sampled Near Reactor 2 Turbine Building at #Fukushima I Nuke Plant

Notes from the press conference in my latest post.


(UPDATE 4) It is per liter, confirms Kino. Phew. It is still very high for groundwater, supposedly not contaminated (at least not by much at all).


(UPDATE 3) Jiji Tsushin says the unit is per liter, not per cubic centimeter.


(UPDATE 2) Independent journalist Ryuichi Kino's tweet:

Strontium at a level of 10^3 (in thousands) per cubic centimeter, tritium at a level of 10^5 (in hundred thousands) per cubic centimeter. (Update from Kino, it is per liter.)


(UPDATE) "Higher than normal", says Jiji Tsushin.


Details to be discussed in the ad hoc press conference at 10AM, June 19, 2013 (Japan Standard Time).

TEPCO Nuclear's tweet, about 30 minutes ago:

We will hold a press conference at 10AM today (June 19) on the third floor of our headquarters building [in Tokyo] to explain about high levels of tritium and strontium [from the groundwater sampled] from one of the observation holes on the east side of Reactor 2 turbine building. This ad hoc press conference can be viewed via live stream.
