INES officially has no level higher than 7. I understand that maybe now there may be reason to add 8 to thier scale, but 9? 10?! Come on now, for the time being there's nothing higher than a rating of 7.

Man: Mt. Fuji erupted? Terrible....
Woman: It's worse than that. didn't you know? The nuclear plant has exploded.
Old Man: The six atomic reactors, they're exploding one after another.

I am certainly no scientist, but this is the calculated result I came up with. 10,000 terabequerls equals 270,000 curies. Upon calculating uranium 235 into the mix, I got a total of 7080 sieverts per hour at the base- not microsieverts, not millisieverts, but SIEVERTS. If this number is correct, this is a massive amount of radiation that was released.

TEPCO says fire out at battery storage bldg near Fukushima-1 reactors 1-4. No effect to reactors, water cooling continues. Then again this does come from TEPCO where every day is opposite day.
Fire is (supposedly) out. This quote is really self-explanatory - we only have the info that TEPCO feeds us for now, and what they're saying is that the fire did not have any effect on the reactors, it was in a nearby battery storage building. What caused it... who knows?edit on 11-4-2011 by pforkp because: (no reason given)
