They just aadmited that radioactive particles were scattered in the 'hydrogen' explosiion

1456: Radiation levels at the Onagawa nuclear power plant in Miyagi prefecture are about 700 times higher than normal but are still low, the Tohoku Electric Power Company has said, according to the Maichi Shinbum website. Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency dismissed the possibility that the Onagawa plant was to blame, saying it was likely caused by the radioactive substances that scattered when a hydrogen explosion hit the troubled Fukushima plant on Saturday.
Now they are saying there was radiation in the 'hydrogen' blast. How can we trust these people?

Hadn't seen that posted (thanks to you for the update )
@ TrueSuperman...that's what I get for scanning. Thank you, too, for the correction.
541: A former nuclear power plant designer has said Japan is facing an extremely grave crisis and called on the government to release more information, which he said was being suppressed. Masashi Goto told a news conference in Tokyo that one of the reactors at the Fukushima-Daiichi plant was "highly unstable", and that if there was a meltdown the "consequences would be tremendous". He said such an event might be very likely indeed. So far, the government has said a meltdown would not lead to a sizeable leak of radioactive materials.
1558: He described the worst-case scenario: "It is difficult to say, but that would be a core meltdown. If the rods fall and mix with water, the result would be an explosion of solid material like a volcano spreading radioactive material. Steam or a hydrogen explosion caused by the mix would spread radioactive waste more than 50km. Also, this would be multiplied. There are many reactors in the area so there would be many Chernobyls."

the government havent bien very helpfull during this crisis!!
first they say no possible meltdown, then confirmed meltdown, then partical meltdown then possible meltdown.
then the explosion, first it wasent an explosion, then the admitted an explosion, then said it wasent a steam/hydrogen explosion it was a wall collapse, then admitted a hydrogen explosion and said radioactive particals were released.
the evacuation zone was increased to 20km and said no danger to people around that area, meanwhile radioactivity increase at another plant 120km away, they said it was due to the blast in the first plant, so if its 700 time above normal 120km away, 20km evac zone is not safe imo, unless of course they turn around and admit its from the leak at the plant 120km away from fist plant where explosion took place....
anyway this reports that are coming out are very very confusing and contradictive imo!!
seems a few people want this downplayed as much as possible.
just one thing tho....... WHAT IS REALY GOING ON???
A cooling system pump has stopped at Tokai No. 2 Nuclear Power Plant in Ibaraki, Kyodo, according to area's fire department
1606: A pump within the cooling system of one of the reactors at the Tokai nuclear power plant has stopped working, according to the Kyodo news agency. The plant is located in the Naka district of the central prefecture of Ibaraki, and is operated by the Japan Atomic Power Company.
