Coronal Hole directly facing Earth, filament eruption

Aside from a nice filament eruption and a Coronal Hole directly facing Earth, thus allowing solar material to freely rush in our direction, solar activity has been at low levels during last 30 hours.It is expected to remain low with a chance for M-class (R1-R2(Minor-Moderate)) and a slight chance for X-class (R3 (Strong)) flare activity over the next three days.There are currently 9 numbered sunspot regions on the Earth side of the Sun but we saw only a few low level C-class flares.Slight growth was observed in the intermediate spots of Regions 2055 (N13W30, Ehi/beta) and 2060 while the rest of the spotted regions are either stable or in decay.Sunspots on May 13, 2014.

TEPCO Could Begin Dumping Bypass Water As Early As May 20th

TEPCO announced they could begin dumping bypass well water into the sea as early as May 20th. The wells have been found to have tritium in them including one well with readings near or over the limit set to allow water to be dumped into the sea. TEPCO no longer tests this water for cesium levels but earlier testing of these wells found small amounts of cesium in the bypass water.
A third party is supposedly testing this water to assure fishing groups it doesn’t exceed the contamination levels set in their agreement. No information about the third party or third party readings have been published anywhere.
The well with the highest contamination levels appears to be impacted in part by the H4 tank farm leak.
