If something like what you are describing had occurred, the entire coastline would have sheared off and bent underneath. Clearly this did not happen.

I'm no geological expert by any means but I believe the shift can be explained more by the edge of the plate that Japan is on was pushed diagonally upward and westward by the Pacific plate as it pushed it's way underneath. This is just a guess really, but doesn't involve the plate bending over on itself like you suggest.

Nope, TMI was a 5.

Nuclear agency says 3 Mile Island was rated a 3 on INES scale, and Chernobyl was rated 7

not saying they are correct, just showing where i got the number

Not to continue the nuke talk here, but that's an error. Here's a publication by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which made the scale. TMI was a 5.

USGS maps and my own interpretation of what's going on seismically. Aside from the Eastern Coast which is still suffering from rebounds and aftershocks from the 8.9, the Western Coast STILL hasn't had a large magnitude quake between the 6.6/6.2 in sequence to the movement of the plate. And remember were only talking a swathe of 200 miles South-North, dropping 2 meters. Inland there may be cracks but not gaping chasms like something out of 2012, infact I doubt itd be even noticeable except along the low-lying areas which are now under the Ocean.

Japan has a long and noted history of downplaying their nuclear events.

OMFG. Wow.

One thing to understand about the Japanese culture is the importance placed on "saving face" and honor. Honor is of the utmost importance. Many times, Japanese baseball games will end in ties because it's more honorable to allow your opponent to save face and not be humiliated. That may be at play here.

Please don't take this as racist or bigoted; I've studied Japanese culture quite a lot and have huge respect for it. It's just a cultural element that can be both wonderful and damaging.

It was called a joke.

Anyway, when these things happen the first people you think of to be offering respone isn't the baseball league.

I wasn't meaning to offend.

that is so sad . wth so the people going in our people are getting exposed to rescue the people who are already exposed and they are
not taking the precautions because they are downplaying the radiation
hopefully they have a way of detecting the radiation and will wear protective gear.

I agree. I've been going through old news stories of previous nuclear accidents in Japan.

It seems this incident is being treated no different than the others. And it is much worse.

Outside of saving face in Japan, there is another aspect at play here: that is the future of nuclear energy as we know it. A incident like this is extremely damaging to those that want nuclear power to be more widespread. You can GUARANTEE there is pressure from the nuclear community to downplay this.
