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.


lots of confirmation of an explosion.

I'm shaking right now...we have a place we might inherit from when we used to live in Maryland. It's in Perry Hall, and is a fixer upper, but it sounds pretty damn good right now depending on where the wind blows.

Prepare for the worst guys, i have a feeling tomorrow is going to bring even more surprises. Anyone have any predictions on what might happen in the next few days?

But I doubt it will explode, it's not a bomb. Worst case scenario the reactor will melt down since the coolant has failed no one knows if the measures being taken are effectively managing to keep the temperature down. If people are expecting a big mushroom they should stop looking for one.

Yea man, Do your best to prepare yourself. I see you live in AZ, but im not even sure how all of this is going to end up affecting the USA..

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.


Let's say you're cooking a pizza in the oven and the pizza is done and then you turn off the oven. If you stick your hands in the oven after you turn it off you will still burn your hands if you don't use a pot-holder or towel to remove the pan because it is still radiating heat. It takes time to cool down.

The likelihood of the actual reactor exploding is VERY low, as I understand it. The fuel could go, but unlikely too. What the real issue is is a leak of radiation, which is already confirmed, at EXTREMELY high levels.

No one is looking for a mushroom cloud. I think most of us know that a meltdown is not a nuclear explosion.

The concern is the radioactive gaseous particulates that could hit the entire northern hemisphere. Starting with the west coast of the US.

The problem is that plant is on the coast.. like right on it.. when the rods melt, the sludge is hotter than the sun.. which can eat through bedrock.

That sludge if it comes in contact with a water source can trigger a very very large explosion.

Yes. Unfortunately for what I read the leak is full on.

This is beyond bad.
