The BBC's Nick Ravenscroft was on his way towards Fukushima, but about 60km from the plant was stopped by the police and told it was too dangerous to proceed. He says there is lots of traffic coming in the other direction. Authorities in vehicles with sirens are making public announcements to the crowds.


This sounds bad

Now correct me if I'm wrong, I don't know much about this. But from the pictures I saw earlier today about the meltdown in Chernobyl, the reactor melted away the roof of the main core housing building. It didn't explode the building.

So the meltdown wouldn't it melt the elements because of the heat, not explode it?

There should have been a third failsafe in the reactor ( I am having trouble finding specs). Lead rods should drop into the vessel and effectively kill the reactor. My wonder is whether the failsafe was installed and if so, did it deploy as designed?

I never thought it would happen.
I thought we'd sit here and talk about it and some how that would ward it off.
But it's happened.
I don't even know what to say...

Should I wake up people I know in Washington State and California and tell them???

What can they do?

Thanks all for keeping us posted...

peace

Weren't they saying earlier that the reactor had been shut down prior to all of this? I don't know doodley about Nuclear Reactors, but if I recall, the media was saying earlier they had shut it down to prevent this scenario from happening and am just wondering what happened between then and now.

The explosion is likely to be the cooling system. I think it's the sodium metal coming in contact with water due to leakage. Sodium and water goes bang. Might be more to it.

its not that the reactor was running. When a reactor is shut down, coolant still has to be used to keep the temp down. The coolant systems failed.

Japan's NHK TV says officials measured the level of radiation at the entrance of the Fukushima-Daiichi plant at 1529 Japanese time. If people are exposed to this level of radiation for an hour they'd receive the same amount of radiation they normally would in a year, the report says


No confirmation on any explosion so far.
