Strontium readings spike 6,500-fold after typhoon at Fukushima

Strontium readings spike 6,500-fold in one day: Water radiation soars at Fukushima No. 1 — The Japan Times.

Immediately after the typhoon the reports said that there was no damage.   Now,, radioactive strontium is being found in the ditches near leaky tanks.  The article says heavy rains from the typhoon washed water into the ditch.   This was  not the classic wind related damage, but rather the storm water raising the  water levels in an area already saturated, from the ground flow and the  water being  added to keep the reactor cool, with its core sinking into the earth.
