Fukushima Plant Has New Leak

More trouble for the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant: a pool of water was found to be contaminated, containing 300 times the level of radioactive cesium permitted. Officials say the leak will not disturb the cooling process of the facility, but it increases concerns that radioactive contaminants are entering the Pacific Ocean. A local report estimates that 220 metric tons of water has leaked from the factory to the ocean.
