Downgraded from a tropical storm, former Typhoon Songda is en route to bring strong winds and torrential rainfall to the Fukushima area. The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), the operator of the plant, has openly apologized for not being prepared to face the storm. Due to lack of progress in preparing the crippled plant for the onslaught of the typhoon, radioactive material may be carried into the air. Depending on the reach of the storm, this could mean some serious health consequences for surrounding areas.
“We have made utmost efforts, but we have not completed covering the damaged reactor buildings,” a Tepco official said on Saturday.
“We apologise for the lack of significant measures against wind and rain,” the official added.
One incomplete job involved the containment of toxic materials. In an attempt to stop the spread of carcinogenic substances, TEPCO has been pouring synthetic resins over the facility. The company also failed to provide a scale of radiation leaks, and now faces a “massive” problem with contaminated water. If toxic radioactive material continues to spread around the globe, an explosion in radiation-related ailments may soon follow.
