No, this thread is only allowed to be about the quake and tsunami now, and the nuke talk has moved to the nuke thread.


I think it's a little ridiculous to have two separate threads for this.

Yes I well know.
The Mod who ordered that and I had a private word or two about it.
I still dont understand how you can have a complete discussion about an event, which caused a second event without mentioning both.
That of course is just my opinion and I humbly bow to the overlords...

CNN) -- The powerful earthquake that unleashed a devastating tsunami Friday appears to have moved the main island of Japan by 8 feet (2.4 meters) and shifted the Earth on its axis.

That's funny. With regard to information posted here (as opposed to conversational stuff), I've seen nothing posted in this thread that wasn't either regurgitated content from one media outlet or another (often misrepresented), statements of obviously made up "facts", and wild guesses. The major use I've gotten out of it is precisely all the links to various "MSM" news stories, images and videos.

Don't know if this has been posted latest is, 801 people have been killed by the quake, 9500 people are missing in a town called Minamanisarinku. 3000 people have been rescued, and hundreds of thousands are currently being evacuated. Fifty countries have extended offers of aid, and ten US naval ships are currently on their way, some of them currently there with troops helping in the search and rescue operations, A team from LA is currently on root, that is currently. Minus the Nuclear meltdown concerns.Google has also launched a database to help people find loved ones.

Question
Has anyone seen any news of the underground natural gas storage areas in the quake affected areas? like real close to the Power plant with the reactor trouble ?

Still can't get my head around the idea of building a nuke plant anywhere near a storage area of 200,000 tons of natural gas, but trying to do some looking to see what shape they are in after the quake.

There has been fires and explosions and numerous storage facilities and refineries, including petro chemical. But I have heard nothing of any facilities near Fukashima that has gone up, closest is I think sixty miles south of there. But I will do a bit of digging for you if anything else pops up.

I am pasting this information in every thread I feel it is relevant. As I am currently unable to create a thread of my own please excuse the repetition. I feel this information is possibly of great importance and so wish to promulgate it rapidly:


Q. Would ingestion of iodized, common table salt be effective in a nuclear accident if KI pills are not available?

A. The daily dose of potassium iodide (KI) for thyroid blocking is 130 mg per day for up to two weeks. This equates to 96 mg of iodine (I). Iodized salt contains about 0.085 mg of KI per gram of salt (according to the Morton Salt Company). To get the I equivalent of a 130 mg KI pill would require the ingestion of 1,529 grams of salt which would most likely be fatal. According to research by Health Physicist Ken Miller, Hershey Medical Center,

a person can get a blocking dose of iodine by painting 8 ml of either tincture of iodine or providone iodine (betadine) scrub on the forearm daily

. William Kirk, PhD, CHP
Pennsylvania Bureau of Radiation Protection


Excellent information, I was discussing this earlier with someone who suggested consuming large amounts of Iodized Table Salt. I was doubtful that was a good idea and mentioned that it would likely be harmful in quantities large enough to help I didn't have these details to explain the exact dangers of such a plan. Thank you for posting this information, I'm sure others have thought of Iodized Table Salt as a possible solution.
