Japan has struggled to contain the fallout from the nuclear disaster that struck Fukushima after the devastating earthquake and tsunami back in 2011. Reports emerged yesterday that 80,000 gallons of highly contaminated water have been leaking out of a storage tank.
The water is so contaminated that standing 18 inches away from it for an hour would expose you to five times the amount of radiation that the average nuclear workers gets in a year. Japan's nuclear watchdog said today that it plans to dramatically raise the rating of the leak to a "serious incident".
