Fukushima's plant operator TEPCO announced today that about 12 tons of water contaminated with radiation has leaked from the plant. Sources are saying that much of the water has leaked into the Pacific ocean, making this the second major leak in two weeks.
TEPCO believes most of the water flowed into the Pacific Ocean. It says the contaminated water leaked from a treatment pipe.
The leak has now been 'plugged', as officials continue to assess the damage and new levels of radiation in the water.
