Radioactive Water Leaks From Power Plant In Japan

There was a radioactive water leak at the tsunami ravaged nuclear power plant in Japan. They said that they believe about 120 tons of the water had leaked though the inner lining of the tanks and some might have made it into the soil. They are now moving all of the water into another tank nearby and it may take several days. The tank is holding 13,000 tons of water which is the same as almost 5 Olympic swimming pools.

I think it is scary that all of that radioactive water can make it out into the ocean and floating all over the world. Then you could end up swallowing it every time you go to the ocean. It also would not just be effecting us it can also effect all of the animals that live in or eat what is in the water.
