I too am in Vancouver. Considering a raging full-scale meltdown in 3 reactors, when do we here in Vancouver need to start preparing to move? There is no end in sight and the powerplant is going to be abandoned. The dead bodies of plankton are washing ashore on our beaches already.
Duke Energy believes that the damaged nuclear plant in Japan is responsible for trace amounts of radiation that have been detected in the Charlotte area. Read more: www.charlotteobserver.com...
This level of radiation poses no health risk to the public, so people should carry on as they normally would," said Christine Pulley, a spokesperson for Duke Energy. Read more: www.charlotteobserver.com...
Amid rumors that Shimizu had fled the country, checked into a hospital or committed suicide, company officials said Monday that their boss had suffered an unspecified “small illness” because of overwork after a 9.0-magnitude earthquake sent a tsunami crashing onto his company’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
Still, company officials are vague about whether they have actually seen their boss: “I’ll have to check on that,” said spokesman Ryo Shimitsu. Another staffer, Hiro Hasegawa, said he’d seen the president regularly but couldn’t provide details.

Did you see them speak over him so we couldn't hear what other questions were being asked and then they cut off from it?? They have never done that before
The Tokyo Electric Company confirmed that AREVA-manufactured fuel assemblies containing plutonium have at least partially melted down when they said that plutonium was found on five separate sites on the reactor grounds, and they had matched the plutonium signature of fuel produced at AREVA’s La Hague facility. The fuel assemblies were first loaded in the reactor at Fukushima last September and were in Reactor 3 when the 14 meter tsunami overwhelmed the nuclear plant dcbureau.org...
Prime Minister Naoto Kan has also voiced frustration at Tepco’s bunker mentality. Japanese newspapers reported that Kan visited Shimizu before dawn at the start of the crisis and later, upon learning that the company might withdraw its last workers from the smoldering nuclear plant, shouted, “What the hell is going on?”

The singular thing that concerns me about a steam explosion is the water itself, not the isotopes it may carry. These isotopes can be dangerous, yes, but there is also a probability that they can be guarded against to at least some extent. Water itself cannot be guarded against.

Tokyo Electric Power Co., the operator of the stricken nuclear plant, was set to fall for a fifth day, as sell orders outnumbered buys. Kandenko Co., the engineering company affiliated with Tokyo Electric, dropped 7.1 percent. Potentially fatal levels of radiation were detected near the Fukushima Dai- Ichi power station crippled by the tsunami.
"The situation at the nuclear plant isn't getting better," said Yoshinori Nagano, a senior strategist in Tokyo at Daiwa Asset Management Co., which oversees about $104 billion. "We still don't know how much of a negative effect it'll have on the economy. The uncertainty is very negative for stocks."
