Fox is reporting that news agencies in Japan are reporting a meltdown in progress on Fukujima number 1 and possible meltdown at two others. So that concurs your link as well. When it rains it pours doesn't it?

Question and I really hope I can post this here (being new I am not always sure of the exact rules) but I was wondering about the Whirl Pools set off by the tsunami's. And forgive my ignorance but I thought that the water of a whirl pool had to GO somewhere, much like in a drain. So how exactly are these whirl pools working? My Da mentioned something about Krakatoa and that there was a whirlpool involved there or something? I find the whirl pools fascinating on a rather odd and morbid level! Any information would be great!


Colliding tides and currents.

www.bbc.co.uk...


Whirlpools are ocean currents that move in a rotating direction, produced by rising and falling tides. Some of these exhibit a downward pull, called a vortex.


As in this case, the tides have been massively affected with the quake, triggering tsunamis, I imagine the whirlpool was formed either when the tide pulled back out, conflicting with yet another incoming tide.

The currents 'collided' and the two forces fought to form a point of least resistance, in this case, a circular whirlpool.

That's the main page, no sign of any meltdown there, nothing in the asia or world section, I already checked, maybe the BBC isn't reporting it online yet?

To do with thermal dynamics of the sea temperature and how it reacted to the quick change in water temperature from incoming sea water from epicenter.

Sounds like fearmongering. 1 plant is supposed to have melting fuel rods, which is seriously bad, but 3? That's madness, and probably Fox News talking crap.

Just found this link on GLP.: www.godlikeproductions.com...

Apparently CESIUM is present and that means the meltdown has likely occurred or occuring.

I guess BBC and that other French source are fear mongering and talking crap too?


Can we please try to understand that during these kinds of events information is fluid.

Actually, they were quoting from a AP article which stated it was possible shortly after that it was in progress at Fukujima 1 and two other plants, were fuel rods were exposed and in the process of melting.

If they're saying 3 reactors, then yeah, maybe they both are. Anyway, maybe they're right, I just don't trust anything that's owned by Rupert Murdoch and never will. He has enough of his media in the UK, I know what his news companies are like.
