A powerful typhoon that swept through Japan Monday caused radioactive water from the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant to drain into the ocean.
Japanese authorities say more than 1-hundred millimeters of rain was measured in some parts of the crippled plant Monday afternoon, as typhoon Man-yi moved its way north.
The deluge that accumulated within the concrete walls surrounding tanks at the plant, combined with contaminated water there, was drained out by authorities.
The amount of water, however, was not known.
Although plant operator TEPCO said radioactive level of the drained water was a maximum of 24 becquerels per liter, below the legal limit of 30 becquerels per liter, some Japanese media outlets questioned whether the operator measured the level just before leaking the water.
Typhoon Man-yi left at least eight people dead or missing and more than 1-hundred injured.
