Widespread Tsunami Warning is in Effect (Pacific): a tsunami warning is in effect for japan/russia/indonesia/papua new g… j.mp...


Thank you for your reply.
I did see this post.
I believe this is the original tunami warning and nothing new.
It refers to the 8.9 earthquake so I don`t believe this is anything new.

Does anyone know all the possibile scenarios of what differents things might come from the N plants on a worst case basis.

For example how far out could the worst disaster reach and what to expect in destruction as it travels its route?

Im not aware of how these plants operate and risks that they might create. Any info on this is greatly appreciated.

I am so sorry to everyone feeling the effects of this! No one should ever have to experience anything like this.

Yeah they mentioned hurricane a few times too, I think they are just fubbing their lines because we're so used to reporting about hurricanes and the Gulf Coast here in the United States.

While looking at video of several damaged areas and noticing that some hi-rise buildings show clear evidence of the water having reached the 3rd story, an NHK reporter was speculating that they aren't sure if the remaining water (still fairly deep in some areas - many feet, from what I can tell) was being held in place by the tide still being high, or if the land actually sank! Can you imagine the implications if some of these densely populated areas couldn't even be rebuilt because they were now below sea level? Space is so limited in Japan that this would surely compound the economic impact and make rebuilding impossible or very difficult in some areas. The whole world is going to have to help Japan with this mess. So tragic and sad.

The worst thing is a meltdown. A meltdown would cause more damage then Tschernobyl.

Has anyone heard about the volcano erupting in Japan? I saw pictures that showed it was erupting due to the quake??? Anyone have any news on that? Never mind I just did some searching and found out it was 6 hours before the Quake:

Of DOW JONES NEWSWIRES

NEW YORK (Dow Jones)--The earthquake that struck Japan on Friday may affect more than $1.5 billion of specialized securities called natural catastrophe bonds, leaving investors scurrying to determine their potential losses. Reinsurers use the securities, known as "cat bonds," to transfer risk from their own portfolios into the capital markets. In exchange for regular payments over the life of the bond, investors risk losing part or all of their initial investment if a specified natural disaster occurs. "I don't think anyone knows the potential loss yet," said one investor, noting it would be days before loss estimates filter through. "Nothing's trading," he added. The quake struck about 40 to 50 miles off the coast of Honshu, causing tsunami waves of up to 30 feet and severe tremors down the coast. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a moment magnitude of 9.1, revised from an earlier 8.9 estimate, and said it was the largest quake in Japan since record keeping began.

It looks pretty ominous!

The original evacuation order was for 3 mile radius,now they have double that!

Thoughts with the brave crews who are trying to bring the reactor back under control!

SpaceWeather and 3D-Sun is reporting that Northern Lights invaded down into the US on the 10th. This means that more particles were penetrating our natural magnetic defenses. I can't help but wonder what inducing affect this might have had to spur on this quake (not that it wasn't completely normal, albeit rare, by all other standards). I'm wondering what other particles/energy might be flowing along with the CME plasma (perhaps that we can't detect yet)? Just speculating here, but I do believe everything is connected to some degree.

if they don't get that nuclear plant under control and it goes total meltdown wouldn't it affect more than a 6 mile radius?
