Highly radioactive water leak found in Fukushima plant
In a new discovery at Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant
authorities have found at least 3-hundred tons of highly radioactive water leaking from a storage tank.
The plant's operator, TEPCO, says the leak is separate from the recent reports of contaminated water flowing daily into the ocean.
Officials say the water is emitting a radiation dose of 1-hundred millisiverts an hour.
That means a person stood next to it would be exposed to five times the average yearly international limit for a nuclear worker within just one hour.
Japanese officials have classified the latest leak as a level-one incident -- the second lowest on an eight-point international scale for nuclear and radiological events.
