Fukushima nuclear reactor radiation called 'unimaginable', highest since 2011 triple meltdown

Fukushima nuclear reactor radiation called 'unimaginable', highest since 2011 triple meltdown | 03 Feb 2017 | Radiation levels inside a damaged reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station are at their highest since the plant suffered a triple meltdown almost six years ago. The facility’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco), said atmospheric readings as high as 530 sieverts an hour had been recorded inside the containment vessel of reactor No 2, one of three reactors that experienced a meltdown when the plant was crippled...in March 2011. The recent reading, described by some experts as "unimaginable", is far higher than the previous record of 73 sieverts an hour in that part of the reactor. A single dose of one sievert is enough to cause radiation sickness and nausea; 5 sieverts would kill half those exposed to it within a month, and a single dose of 10 sieverts would prove fatal within weeks.
