Officials in Tokyo said radiation in the capital was 10 times normal at one point but not a threat to human health in the sprawling high-tech city of 13 million people. Toxicologist Lee Tin-lap at the Chinese University of Hong Kong said such a radiation level was not an immediate threat to people but the long-term consequences were unknown. "You are still breathing this into your lungs, and there is passive absorption in the skin, eyes and mouth and we really do not know what long-term impact that would have," Lee told Reuters by telephone.

I'd say the long-term impact wouldn't be good, whatever it is.
My thoughts are with all those 13 million tonight.

Minoru Ogoda, a spokesman for the Japanese nuclear safety agency, tells AFP: "We have received information from [the Tokyo Electric Power Company] that the fire and smoke is now invisible and it appears to have gone out of its own accord." An explosion on Tuesday morning damaged reactor 4's building and sparked a fire in its spent fuel storage pond. The reactor had been shut down before Friday's earthquake for maintenance, but its spent nuclear fuel rods were stored on the site.

Yukiko Hosomi, who lives in Bristol but has family in the Shizuoka prefecture of Japan, not far from a nuclear plant similar to the one at Fukushima, tells the BBC: "I am very concerned and worried about the situation. I have been in touch with people in Japan, but I am utterly shocked at their 'optimism' and the lack of information about this critical situation. I have been following both international and Japanese media and the difference of information is unbelievable. The Japanese government and media are not telling the truth, underestimating the people's capacity to cope."

That says it all. The Japanese government and media are not being upfront with it's people about the seriousness of the current nuclear situation.

0029: Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) says it will be extremely difficult to spray water from a helicopter to cool down a storage pool for spent nuclear fuel in the No.4 reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi plant. Earlier Japanese news agency Kyodo reported that the storage pool could be boiling, while Tepco said readings showed high levels of radiation, making the building inaccessible

Hi, Given the fact it's been offline for such a long time I'd have to speculate that the anomalous readings are due to it been physically reinstated and/or recalibrated. I will keep my eye on it though and let you know if I get concerned, as for strange smells I live in S#horpe and am quite used to them


Hi there sunny S#horpe!

Thank you! At last....I was beginning to feel like Eeyore on here!

No it is still running

quake.utah.edu...

I have taken a 'snapshot' (having been taught by my daughter earlier this evening!) But I have no idea hw to post it on here. The 'bars' are getting smaller! However, all around the caldera has been reacting in the last 24 hours. Do you know the size of the quakes that show up or how to work them out please? Also I have no idea how deep they are.
