Levels of tritium in groundwater at crippled Fukushima power plant rapidly rise
Over in Japan, levels of tritium, one of the radioactive materials spewing from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant., have rapidly increased over the last three days.
The plant's operator, TEPCO says it detected tritium levels that were 15 times higher than a reading from earlier this week at a groundwater well near a leaking tank at the facility.
Meanwhile, Korea's marine affairs ministry announced Thursday, that Korea's territorial waters nearby Japan all proved to be free of radioactive material from Fukushima.
In sample tests conducted last month, levels of radioactive cesium were less than the average of the past five years.
The Korean government plans to conduct the sample tests once or twice every month at some 27 spots in Korean waters.
