Radiation has been detected.
If people are exposed to this amount of radiation for an hour, it would be the same a regular person is exposed to in a year.

One hour of this radiation = One year of regular radiation

What does that mean? The Actual Reactor Ceiling? Where the Nuclear Rods are held??


Not sure. I am passing it along exactly as I read it. I'm pretty sure they mean the actual reactor though.

So was the actual concrete containment compromised?

NHK reporting exposure levels now up to 1,015 microsieverts in the area since the explosion.. any idea how much that is?

Sky news, reported confirmation from the Japanese media, the walls and roof were destroyed.

Strong shaking before explosion.

Again, still no confirmation of which building at the plant they are refering to.

A press statement is due shortly about this.

Not sure whether anyone has flagged this up or not so apologies if it has already been mentioned.

There appears to be an increasing interest amongst geologists that oil drilling, especially deep oil drilling, may trigger earthquakes. About a week or so ago there was a moratorium on drilling in Arkansas because there were concerns on oil drilling causing earthquakes in that region - see or example -

globalrumblings.blogspot.com...

The notion is, as I understand it, that mini-seismic earthquakes caused by drilling and extraction of oil causes the surrounding rocks to shift positions to fill in the newly vacated spaces. This movement may seem small but like an avalanche effect a small movement triggers larger and larger movements.

When one thinks about the amount of oil drilling and the emphasis becoming more and more on deep sea oil drilling I wonder whether the connection between oil drilling and earthquakes may have some relevance. If there is such a scientific connection it may have been covered up and discredited by the major oil companies.

I honestly don't know how they are going to handle rods exposed to air. Having worked with reactors for a good chunk of my adult life, this is about as bad as it can get. My prayers are with the workers at the plant.

You get 50 microsieverts for a standard chest X-ray.

They said you will get radioactive exposure in 1hour, what you normally would take in in 1 year

Jiji news agency said there had been an explosion at the stricken 40-year-old Daichi 1 reactor and TV footage showed vapour rising from the plant, which lies 240 km (150 miles) north of Tokyo


not sure if this is the same explosion or not, but they specifically state it is the reactorrr
