I just watched on CNN that the town Minamisoma population 71 thousand was completely washed away. They showed footage of it. It was horrible you couldnt see any survivors. They said they are not sure if there are any.


Hey just a thought why would they have not added that to the death toll? Is it a possibility that they were able to evacuate people before time or are they just not sure how many people have died? 71 thousand just knocks me down but I am not seeing that number or anything close to that number being reported in the death toll.

Governments usually don't cite fatalities without proof of recovered bodies.

That's going to take a very long time....and some people will NEVER be found.


But they were at least evacuated before time, right? If not than this is a tad too sad for me to watch. I'll just have to wait for the final updates on the whole situation.

Sarcastic much?

Point is they have time to make things right, and there is every indication they can do that. If not the point is a moo point anyway.
And yes the aftershocks are perfectly normal, as normal as they can be for a quake of this magnitude.

So why are all the news outlets still reporting less than 1,000 dead? I too saw that a whole area was gone, 71,000 people. Last bad quake killed over 140,000. Either way, it's bad...very bad.

Japans minister has issued a State of Emergancy as per CNN. A well creditentialed expert is speaking now regarding the 'fear factor' and the reality.


Edit to add: He states this incident has the potential to be more like 3 Mile Island rather then Chernobyl.

They seem to be all over the place about the nuclear plants, it goes back and forth between okay and being in danger of becoming another disaster...

I think they are waiting untill they know for sure before adding that to the death toll. They said they dont know if anyone got out or not.

my reports says within hours of meltdown if not solved


Mine say the control rods are in place and the risk of a meltdown is remote. You just still have a lot of residual heat with no cooling, but not on going fission.

I just want to say thanks again to everyone for keeping the thread going with up to the minute updates. I have been in and our of here for more than 16 hours and it's good to see that after missing 5 pages you can still get a recap of what's going on.

This also occurred after the Chile earthquake last year. Why are you copy/pasting off Twitter? That's CNN and FOX News' job.

Obviously Sony, Nintendo products would be massively impacted. If not directly by the Earthquake itself but logistical issues from airports and Seaports needing space accommodating the relief efforts. The Industrial backbone of Japan i'd imagine would be taking a step back somewhat for the next year or two while it gets back on its feet.

CNN explained it pretty well just now.

Basically said that they got the Rods into the reactor, so the possibility of a meltdown is almost zero, chernobl never got the Rods in, which is why it melted-down.

They have a problem with the cooling system, meaning its heating up to levels that they have to open the roof to vent the temp, releasing higher levels of radiation than normal.

They need to replace power, to get the cooling system working, right now its running on battery power. Most likly also need to repair the cooling systems.

The expert said he didnt see life threatening levels of radiation being released, but that the psychological level would be very high on the ecconomy and other parts of life.

There aren't many earthquakes going on today. Maybe the big one off Japan has released a lot of the tension in the plates. I think this may be the last big earthquake we will see for a while.
