I'd just expect millions to go South, by any means necessary. There's a time for civility and a time for survival. I would seriously doubt that 11 million people in Tokyo would allow themselves to be exposed to deadly levels of radiation without a fight.

www.msnbc.msn.com... Question and answer with physicist. Comfort for the west coast but takes Tokyo situation seriously.

I agree that the smart ones will get the heck out of there now, just in case. But the infrastructure could not handle a sudden mass exit of the whole Kanto area. The Kanto area around Tokyo has about 42 million people.

Well, the French look like they've made a decision (insert jokes about being first to retreat here
)

www.bbc.co.uk...


France is now urging its nationals in Tokyo to leave Japan or head to the south of the country, Reuters reports. It says Paris has asked the Air France carrier to provide planes for the evacuation.

Scary and amazing at the same time, isn't it? Almost surreal. I hope the smart ones leave now, instead of waiting before there is too much congestion and the infrastructure gets overloaded.

I can't believe this. We are going to lose Tokyo, one of the best cities in the world.

Radiation rises in eastern Russia -

Not to dangerous levels... yet. But the Japanese government and media are totally downplaying this grave situation.

Russia officials are planning for possible eventual evacuation of Sakhalin island. That's just north of me!

TEPCO has removed public access to a webcam showing the Fukoshima reactors. Now a password is needed in order to observe the complex. live.reuters.com...

this seems a little suspicious to me,

I would imagine that's because it's getting swamped and they need it to stay up. It may be the only way they can see what's going on?

If I were General George Smith Patton, Jr. I would slap the stuffing out of you right now. You're being a hysterical ninny. How do you get from the French advising their citizens to leave to: OMG we are going to lose Tokyo? Get a grip. This may be a fun way for you to get your adrenaline pumping, but the actual people who live in Tokyo don't need panic mongering. I swear, the more I read here the more I realize that, whether they will admit it (or even are conscious of it) or not, a lot of people want a worst case scenario. It's entertainment for some of us, apparently; good news would be just boring.

Is anyone else alarmed this could be us in like 3 weeks? I said could, not would. But in threads recently there was alarm for earthquakes in the USA and FEMA was preparing. I don't know exact details, but I feel like this Japan situation is what some feared would happen in March here.

Right now much more alarmed with what could happen to Japan in the next three weeks.

maybe off topic: (sorry just have to say this out loud. )


I am just amazed at how resilient the Japanese people are. There isn't any looting, neighbors are helping each other out. If this happened in the the United States, there would be mass chaos, looting, national guard deployments, murder, death and mayhem. I mean look at the Katrina aftermath.

and where did everyone go? which threads?
