September 12, 2015 — 5.4 Quake Hit Tokyo Bay, Japan, Friday,
Sept. 11, After Typhoon Etau Flooded Hundreds of Tons of Radioactive
Water from Fukushima Nuclear Plant Into Pacific Ocean.

— “On September 9 and 11, 2015, due to typhoon no. 18 (Etau),
heavy rain caused Fukushima Daiichi K drainage rainwater to overflow to the sea. ...
measurement results show no impact to the ocean.”
- TEPCO website

— “This is a downpour on a scale that we have not experienced before.”
- Takuya Deshimaru, Japan weather forecaster in press conference

Flooding in Joso, Ibaraki prefectur, northeast of Tokyo,
on September 10, 2015, a Japanese town of 31,000 people most intensely
flooded during Typhoon Etau that forced evacuations of 100,000 in
central and northeastern Japan.

3 dead, 23 missing, 13,000 homes flooded, thousands evacuated from homes. The Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) says that testing of waters around its Fukushima nuclear power plant and in the nearby Pacific Ocean are “sufficiently below” the legally permitted radioactivity level, according to Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga. But amid the overwhelming typhoon waters, many are concerned that TEPCO has restarted nuclear reactor Unit 1, even while the company still struggles to contain highly radioactive water from the other damaged units during the March 11, 2011, earthquake and tsunami.

I live in Hanoi Vietnam and I can not believe that in Japan also has the flood situation occurred as in my country. If you are the experts of the weather, please see some images of the flood in my city: http://www.hanoiweat...oi-vietnam.html
