Trying to stay positive here...


It's quiet cause it's the middle of the night there. Expect reports to come in around 5-6pm eastern after their day has begun.

News maybe quirt, but the Earth isn't. Just looked at Iris just now

Looks like the fault is acting up again 3 6.0+ today already

Ways to help Japan. I posted a thread a couple hours ago and only one response, sigh.


Helping Japan

What I have done is chose a relief organization carefully to donate to.

Your input is needed, Thanks

Yokoso news is off line now - if these were new quakes and not aftershocks
we should be vigilant for tsunami's.

There's no difference between an earthquake and an aftershock.

Yes.. Yes there are. The separate earthquakes they're discussing are from different fault lines, thus aren't the result/continuance of the initial quake. They're more troubling because it opens up the possibility that You could be facing quakes/aftershocks from multiple fault lines and multiple directions.

The context of the post I replied to was that we should be diligent for tsunamis if the quakes referenced were not aftershocks. There is no less chance of a tsunami because something is referred to as a an aftershock. Of course, if a quake happens in a different place it may not be considered an aftershock of the other main quake, but there is no real difference and no greater or lesser chance of damage based on whether it is designated as a main shock or an after shock.

The significance of it being designated as a separate quake lies in the implication that a different fault system is showing activity that it had not recently.

One of the quakes took place in the middle of the island and I immediately though about a possible land-slide scenario when I saw the location. Buildings are continually being shaken and weak points are getting weaker with each successive tremblor.

Being close to Fuji is a bit worrisome in that we could be seeing volcanic activity increasing as well

As for that "professional" who says that the quake along the other fault is not related to the previous large release, it would seem ghat he needs to be reminded that things do not occur in a vacuum. the tectonic system of the earth is related to it's magnetosphere is related to it's hydrological system is related to several other systems. These connections are not always readily apparent, but if you look at the earth holistically you will see that subtle patterns and interrelations emerge from the seeming chaos.

Don't get too wrapped up im the trees that forests are decimated because larger occurrences are obscured.

TEPCO Press Release:


At approximately 6:00am, a loud explosion was heard from within the
power station. Afterwards, it was confirmed that the 4th floor rooftop
area of the Unit 4 Nuclear Reactor Building had sustained damage.

After usage, fuel is stored in a pool designated for spent fuel.

Plant conditions as well as potential outside radiation effects are
currently under investigation.

TEPCO, along with other involved organizations, is doing its best to
contain the situation. Simultaneously, the surrounding environment is
being kept under constant surveillance.

Yes rads have dropped but that is only because winds are blowing out to sea, lets hope the wind doesnt change huh? However that radiation on the wind now will just become americas problem! Then there is the question of what happened to all the eradiated sea water. Some no doubt turned to steam which was vented where? And what of the rest? Pumped out to sea. Do not trust the "experts", they are paid shills. Its like a tobbacco spokesman saying smoking is ok!

Chernobyl clean-up expert slams Japan, IAEA
Thank you for being prepared.
I have run rudimentary numbers based on preliminary facts I have gathered during at least 200+ pages of this thread, and the potential number of casualties over 20 years I have deduced is staggering, but without more solid information I am unwilling to post it here or anywhere else.

Stay vigilant, planet Earth.

addendum: the number alluded to above is based on a worst-case scenario given the amount and type of fuel and spent fuel rods (spent fuel was apparently located in the upper area of each reactor facility building) reported present at each reactor, and particulate distribution by the jet stream, as I mentioned over 20 years, using numbers comparative to the Chernobyl incident, and accounting for population density based on projected exposure over a similar area. I'm not an expert, just crunching some numbers, but I'm scared spitless by what I have seen.

I've been watching that too. It seems more active today than the last couple of days but I haven't verified that, I was waiting to see if it picked up a little more before researching.

Yes, that is pretty much normal for Southern California. I would worry if you start to see bunches in the 4.0 and 5.0 range. This is what happened in days before the big one hit in Japan.

Live geiger in tokyo... I just watched it climb from 16.23 to 17.47 in the last 15-20 minutes.

I dont really know much about this, but at what point do you start to get alarmed? I saw the 130 CPM emergency thing... but if you could be exposed to this for a few days wouldnt you want to leave and avoid it?

First, I have seen that link many times since the disaster started, but the latest version of Firefox never loads it, are you using a different browser?

More importantly, yes, a person would want to leave that area within one day at this point, so leave now if you are within 100km for certain, in my lay-opinion. I don't want this to become worse than a tsunami, I have close relations living near Tokyo, and on the west USA coast. I don't like this at all, historically these nuclear events are downplayed for a decade or more before the true cost begins to be known even roughly.
I want to mitigate my strong feelings by saying background radiation on that scale can be above 30 and not considered abnormal in certain areas (CA, CO, the southwest USA and some states East) in the United States, and elsewhere globally. Please don't panic, but stay as informed as possible, and I don't mean the MSM necessarily of course. Everyone must make a knowledge mashup and use discernment to sift sh*t from shine in this crisis, to stay abreast of it.
