Guys, this is my first post here so hello all. Frankly, I am scared right now. I live on the East Coast but can't help but to think something is very, very wrong...


Welcome to ATS. You are in good company. All we can do is be calm and as strong as we can.
2nd line


Yes, welcome to ATS.


This is a very stressful time for everyone, well not for everyone, but for some. And I couldn't have said it any better...stay calm, stay strong.

As far a something being very very wrong, well it seem so doesn't it? But it will get better, I know it.

Hang in there.

NHK even just said again, all 5 nuclear facilities have shut down just fine according to standard emergency procedure. No contamination reported.




And in Utah here... my sky is 'bright' like the night before the storm (which it is for us here sadly), but also has that ''purple' hue people are reporting. Definitely interesting, although a few nights ago before our last big snow storm our sky was so bright at 2 AM I could see everything like day. That's always an interesting effect before a snow...

Although the purple tint is quite interesting.

Tsunami and earthquake havoc in Japan
Friday, March 11, 2011 » 07:47pm AEDT


A magnitude-8.9 earthquake hit northeastern Japan on Friday, generating a tsunami as high as 10 metres that hit the coast of Miyagi prefecture, officials said.

At least six people were killed, 20 injured and many were missing, including a number of children who were sucked into the sea, the public broadcaster NHK reported.

The eight deaths were reported at a welfare facility that collapsed in Minami Soma in Fukushima prefecture, and the Kyodo News agency said eight people were missing in a landslide in Fukushima prefecture.

Waves swamped buildings and swept away cars, boats, crops and even buildings. People gathered on the roofs of inundated buildings and houses. Women waved white handkerchiefs from windows, seeking help.

It's frustrating how these reporters understate everything. she says calmly, "The Fukishama nuclear reactor has not reported any leaks, but the diesel engines used to cool down the reactor are inoperable." ...and then on to the next story.

BREAKING: one of the nuclear power plants in Japan is in danger of failing. They cant cool it down.


OMG its gonna experience a meltdown. It will poison the entire water system and air. This is not looking good.



STOP. Just STOP.

You're making yourself a fool here.

This needs to stay civil and what is true... it's terrible, but manageable.

They've shut down nuclear facilities. There is NO threat from the nuclear facilities, and have MANY fail safes specifically for earthquakes. Don't be concerned about that at this time.


Aye if there is anyone I trust with nuclear power, it is the Japanese. I don't want to characterise them in any racist manner, but as a people they strike me as being very intelligent and careful and recklessness doesn't seem to be characteristic of them, particularly as regards safety.

Right... I'm really trying not to sound rude by doing this, but there is no reason at this time to have any fear about the nuclear situation in Japan. Trust me, this was their FIRST priority in concern.


Thank you - what I'm trying to do is get to the bottom of a post by WindWalker - that started as a one line post alerting the thread the nuclear plant was unable to control cooling... Just trying to get to the truth.

Still listening for a update...

peace

The announcer JUST said (10.45 Rome time) that the 5 nuclear plants have been shut down, no leaks reported and NOTHING about a problem with cooling at the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant.

WAIT!!!!!

NOW she's doubling back that there IS an emergency there (Fukushima)! The emergency generators used to cool the plant are all inoperable.

WHAT!!! :O
