BBC has just reported that another reactor (number 3) has lost all emergency power and so there is a race on to try to provide alternative cooling.
They also report that at least 9 people have been found to have been exposed to excessive radiation levels-presumably these were workers.

Took the Japanease Government officials all day to admit that there was a problem, when everyone else knew there was a problem. After all we all saw the explosion, on the TV,news channels around the world.

Not to creat panic or to cover up what is going to be another disastrious event in that country,

The confusion is between the "warning time" and the time it took for the tsunami to reach shore.

The wave took about half an hour at least, but the warning only came in 5-7 minutes before the wave did (ie: 23-25 minutes after it was formed)

its a good thing they bought out all of those freeze dried food packets


Gosh yes, their psychic powers were right on the button for them to 'know' they were going to be needed so soon after they had ordered the supplies of dried food packets.

There is this feeling in the air...

I went into town for a while and everyone had these solemn looks on their faces...

It's like they are sensing what I'm sensing: that this is far from over...

I wish I could shake this feeling but I can't... I have chills right now yet its a hot day...

Im glad your ok souljah, i was telling my dad about you yesterday, (hes eighty and couldnt understand how I could send a message to a guy in Hawaii, I know what you mean about that feeling, I dont think this is over either and i dont mean the nucleur reactor issue.

They were saying that same thing right before the first explosion this morning... So is it still releasing it, or is it now releasing more?
