The situation around the nuclear complex in the County Jonben in the DPRK threatens global catastrophe, said on its website the members of the research group 38 North. Previously, the station was in the midst of severe flooding.

Scientists that work at Johns Hopkins University in the United States, made a disappointing conclusion on the basis of satellite images, which was registered by the natural disaster. They noted that the floods inundated two pumping stations and a Weir, which together provide cooling of nuclear reactors. If the system fails, the world is on the brink of nuclear catastrophe, the experts said.

The experts added that if the pumps continue to operate, it guarantees their long-term health no. The reason for failure, which can occur at any time, can become clogged with debris service channels for the passage of water.

Earlier, as reported by “Rambler” in Ukraine, the veterans of atomic energy said that the country is on the verge of a repeat of the Chernobyl disaster. In the list of factors contributing to the tense situation, they cited the lack of permanent leadership of the operator of all Ukrainian NPPs and disorder in the management of sites, which affect the General level of security.
