Germany has a large, somewhat unassimilated and somewhat discontent Turkish community, some of whom may fear similar treatment in Germany and some of whom may encourage such fears.

Food shortages in the area just outside the evacuation area. Drivers don't want to deliver to the city because of radiation fears.

So food stores are empty, people can't go back to work so money will run short to even have money to shop. manufacturers can't keep production going because of fuel shortage and power outages as well as getting supplies.

In short this one incidence will still have long lasting consequences

Werthog - this is why you shouldn't put stuff like that in a thread where people are scared and paranoid.


Ya, my bad. Sorry if I offended anyone.

Breaking news, and sounds extremely bad. These levels give a lethal dose in just four hours. I wonder exactly where these levels were measured - was this outside the reactor building, at the gates to the plant, or somewhere within the building? It sounds like the levels just spiked...

Kyodo News is also reporting that the temperature is rising in reactor 1. I wonder if the shaking from the recent aftershocks knocked out a bunch of fuel pellets from already damaged/melted fuel rods, and they collected together to go into a critical reaction

Ohh ,number 1 ? i'm missing something or number 1 was the most stable from all four (1,2,3,4) critical reactors ?

Inside or out?

Someone please tell me they have at least some of the pumps running by now?

I'm worried that the shaking from the recent aftershocks upset the already damaged fuel rods, and some have collapsed together and gone critical, or dropped fuel pellets which are going critical at the bottom of the reactor core.

Those last 3 quakes today surprised me that they didn't create a tsunami, glad they didn't but strong
enough. All the aftershocks could have further weakened the reactors in who knows what kind
of condition they are in now. Pretty scary to think about - things are so very bad right now and
I have to look close and far to find reports coming out of Japan - also confusing when we do get
information.

    - Around 2:30 this morning and began injecting water into the reactor water supply system.
    - We conduct water injection into the reactor continuously.

  • Reactor #2:

    - We conduct water injection into the reactor continuously.

  • Reactor #3:

    - Around 10:45 pm on March 22, a central control room with the lights lit.
    - We conduct water injection into the reactor continuously.

I thought #4 didn't have any fuel in the reactor?


THAT has been the biggest problem... they are constantly confusing the details. Just a while ago they were saying on NHK that the fire trucks were sprayin water to cool the CORE as well as the pools... How the hell are they using the fire trucks to cool the CORE? Just the casing?

Breaking right now ORDER just put out to NOT consume 11 vegetables cabbages, cauliflower,spinach, broccoli, radishes 165 times above normal of cesium 137 radishes Government saying they will reimburse farmers

Japanese consumers are now concerned and wanting accurate information

Fukushima Engineer Says He Covered Up Flaw at Shut Reactor #4



Mitsuhiko Tanaka says he helped conceal a manufacturing defect in the $250 million steel vessel installed at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi No. 4 reactor while working for a unit of Hitachi Ltd. (6501) in 1974. The reactor, which Tanaka has called a “time bomb,” was shut for maintenance when the March 11 earthquake triggered a 7-meter (23-foot) tsunami that disabled cooling systems at the plant, leading to explosions and radiation leaks.

yeah that is something I have been confused about...seems like those rods were reported to have been taken out before the quake for maint.....but yet..the core is needing cooled????

Its all falling apart now... right now the news anchors are asking WTF do you mean by 'no immediate concern. The grocers are pulling ALL vegetables from the area so they don't ruin their own reputations. Shipments have been halted, people being asked NOT to eat those that they were told were safe just before. Now people are really concerned

Yeah, heard about that one on the news a few days back. It might be posted in this thread somewhere too.
Since, they're going to have to scrap this plant anyway, sounds like they dodged a potential nuclear bullet.
The sad part is, now that the plant's going to be scrapped; there probably will never be any further investigation.
But, then again, maybe that was never going to happen anyway.
