Worst part is when I came into work on wed night there was a newly posted "Fallout Shelter" sign in the NOC (with an occupancy of 1). Its crazy on an unsurreal level.
Is anyone posting the updated links and stuff anywhere? Any new aftershocks or quakes or tsunamis? I have close friends over there and they were fine yesterday but they are in okinawa. Any one have any updated from there?
"radiation leak confirmed by Japan's chief cabinet secretary Edano."
International news agencies are talking to detect radioactive cesium (Cs135) near the nuclear plant with the information, however, not confirmed by the Japanese government
The agency said there was a strong possibility that the radioactive cesium monitors detected was caused by the melting of a fuel rod at the plant, adding that engineers were continuing to cool the fuel rods by pumping water around them.

Y'all, this is extremely bad. That high of levels of radiation, the reactor caving in, a wider evacuation around the SECOND REACTOR.....
I live on the west coast. Im legitimately worried now.
Pay attention to the jetstream information.
The confusion is just really too much right now.. but plan for the worst.

I just woke up after staying awake till 3am on this thread....Seems TSHTF with the reactor #1 going into meltdown, although I've checked BBC news, and it has only claimed an explosion - not mentioning the meltdown or any collapsed containment.
Several people have appeared worried about water touching the reactor. Why is that?
I realise there is hydrogen in water, but will the water not just turn to steam?
Does anyone have a link to show what the negative effects are that all the people keep panicking about?
Is anyone watching what the elite and world leaders are doing? Are they headed underground ?
Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano has confirmed the explosion at Fukushima-Daiichi. "We are looking into the cause and the situation and we'll make that public when we have further information," he is quoted as saying by Reuters.
