TEPCO, upon receiving government approval, at 8:20 p.m. (1120 GMT) began filling the damaged No.1 reactor with sea water and boric acid to cool it and prevent it from going critical. The company said on Saturday it was preparing similar measures for five other reactors because it had lost its ability to control container pressure due to low levels of coolant flow.

I'm following CNN with you and it appears the anchors do not understand the differences between a watch, advisory and warning. Furthermore it doesn't appear they understand what a warning is or could possibly mean. From what I gather, tsunami warnings have been in affect in japan since shortly after the big quake. As long as tremors are occuring which are above 6.0, Tsunami warnings will be in affect. A warning means tsunami waves are imminent but the size of the waves will remain unknown. So until the aftershocks drop below 6.0, a warning will be in affect for Japan. Any possibly affected coasts will continue with advisories or watches.

Following is a list of the manufacturers and the current status of reactors in the Fukushima Daiichi and Daini plants, excluding those under planned maintenance when the quake struck. Generation capacity is shown in megawatts. Plant name Unit MW Mfr Status Fukushima-Daiichi 1 460 GE filling with sea water, to take 5 hours or more
2 784 GE, Toshiba preparing to release inner pressure
3 784 Toshiba preparing to release inner pressure
Fukushima-Daini 1 1,100 Toshiba ready for releasing inner pressure
2 1,100 Hitachi ready for releasing inner pressure
3 1,100 Toshiba has been safely cooled
4 1,100 Hitachi ready for releasing inner pressure

am i the only one hearing these reports ?



Well no probably your not the ONLY one..... but Im not hearing them I dont even know where your hearing them from or how reliable they are.....

Your reporting stuff from the MSM, to be fair that's not what ATS is about.

I might just as well sit and watch TV.....

ETA just found 'Anna' shes just an on the spot reporter, she has zero specialist knowledge, shes no better than a weather girl....

A foot and a half tsunami wave would be of great concern to the affected area, the force of such a wave would still be very powerful and flow inland.

I saw that too, I think it was just poor quality.......I hope.

Anderson Cooper...Is that you? Welcome to ATS!

Care to learn a few things? Just ask around.

From what I understand, it is still winter there. They are talking around 40F in the daytime and just below freezing at night - these people are going to have exposure problems. To live out in those temps without benefit of four solid walls of some type is really very tough under the best of circumstances (I know this from personal experience and my situation at the time was tons better than what these folks are dealing with)..
My heart goes out to these people, I hope search and rescue are able to get to as many as they can

In reply to my own question regarding what caesium it was that was traced in the air outside the core in reactor 1, this is the answer. A quote from Wikileaks.


The isotopes 134 and 137 (present in the biosphere in small amounts from radiation leaks) represent a radioactivity burden which varies depending on location. Radiocaesium does not accumulate in the body as effectively as many other fission products (such as radioiodine and radiostrontium). As with other alkali metals, radiocaesium washes out of the body relatively quickly in sweat and urine. However, radiocaesium follows potassium and tends to accumulate in plant tissues, including fruits and vegetables.[96][97][98] Accumulation of caesium-137 in lakes has been a high concern after the Chernobyl disaster.[99][100] Experiments with dogs showed that a single dose of 3800 μCi (4.1 μg of caesium-137) per kilogram is lethal within three weeks;[101] smaller amounts may cause infertility and cancer.[102] The International Atomic Energy Agency and other sources have warned that radioactive materials, such as caesium-137, could be used in radiological dispersion devices, or “dirty bombs”.


So the decay rate/half life is 30years and 2 years respectively.....30 years is a long time !

Concerning.

Respects

Depends where it hits to be honest.. they do have barrier walls for certain heights.

They just are little effective against 30 foot walls of water.

Trust me, not downplaying water coming in.

Though ATS is generally not about MSM information, this is kind of a special case and any info is relevant at this point, even if it does end up being a rumor. A lot of people have loved ones there and many of us have loved ones in the service that are heading there now. Sorting through the junk could take forever but that is the responsibility of ATS members.(I mean, that is kind of what we do here right?)

It would be nice if ATS could place a search engine just for the thread you are in, I wanted to search for the info I had ready to post but the search gave to many to choices.
I did find that it was already on the thread, but you are right a recap can be skipped if you have read it previously/

I totally understand that, but what doesn't help is people not posting links to back up what they are saying so i can go and check it out for myself.

If it's from a news station such as CNN, put up a link for the live feed.

why you even waiting on others to bring you the information? if you care that concerned why dont you go look for your own updates and sources instead of complaining about others ! what i heard i reported and has been verified
