The Japanese workers at Japan’s crippled nuclear plant piled up sandbags and readied emergency storage tanks on March 29, 2011 to stop a fresh leak of highly contaminated water from reaching the ocean, opening up another front in the battle to contain the world’s worst nuclear accident in decades. As fears of further contamination grew, Prime Minister Naoto Kan said his government was in a state of maximum alert over the situation at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.

The Japanese Government had stated that the discovery of plutonium in the soil near the plant provided new evidence that the fuel in at least one of the plant’s reactors had experienced a partial meltdown. A full meltdown of the fuel rods c...ould release huge amounts of radiation into the environment. The Japanese Government’s chief spokesman Yukio Edano had said that “there is a high possibility that there has been at least some melting of the fuel rods that in itself is a very serious situation, This quake, tsunami and the nuclear accident of March 11,2011 are the biggest crises for Japan” in decades that is what Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan had said in Parliament.He had defended his visit to a nuclear power plant crippled by a tsunami earlier this month. Responding to questions for the first time since the March 11,2011 earthquake and tsunami hit northeast Japan, Kan acknowledged that the crisis at the plant gave little cause for optimism. Japanese Prime Minister Kan toured the plant the day after the tsunami, and some lawmakers have suggested his presence delayed efforts by the plant operator to immediately confront the emergency. He said his March 12 visit was not a “political performance”, the Kyodo news service reported. “Grasping the situation at the plant at that time was extremely important,” he said. French President Nicolas Sarkozy is scheduled to meet the embattled Prime Minister on a visit to Japan on March 31,2011 as announced earlier. Sarkozy will travel to Japan on behalf of the Group of twenty leading world economies. The efforts to contain the unfolding crisis at the plant, ravaged in the quake and tsunami, have focused on restoring power and restarting the cooling systems at the plant’s six reactors, while keeping the nuclear fuel rods cool in the meantime with fire hoses and pumps.On March 29,2011, Japanese , workers piled sandbags outside the opening of one tunnel in danger of overflowing near Reactor No. 1, according to the plant’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company. They also prepared to pump water out of the turbine buildings, and to secure storage tanks to hold the highly radioactive water. It is officially revealed that the capacity may be running out. Let us hope for the best in Japan as we have full faith in the wisdom and technical skill of Japanese as whole!
