Thank you for providing that link.
(Thanks also to the following poster for the embed.) That's a very telling piece of video, especially considering the timing. I've taken a co- (cough cough) -py of it in case the YTube version gets taken down. Would be good if some other members do likewise.

Good to see you Mike. That was my thinking on the extra activity at the crisis complex. I wouldn't put it past them to release massive amounts of radiation in the dead of night. Makes me mad as hell, it does. The date is right. From my observations, R's #'s 2 through, and including 4, were ramped up in some type of releasing pressure/steam, mode. I'll keep an eye out for info posted online re: higher readings than normal, whatever normal is.

Don't be a stranger Mike...you were missed.

Maybe this has something to do with the overall extra activity at the crisis complex...


The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency of the Economy, Trade and Industry Ministry on Thursday deemed "appropriate" TEPCO's report that it would flood the primary containment vessel of the No. 1 reactor with water.

The report details the plan for the water coffin operation and the quake resistance of the containment vessel. The agency deemed it an "unavoidable measure to cope with the emergency [in the reactor]," it said.

After receiving approval, TEPCO increased the amount of water being injected. TEPCO will continue injecting water until fuel rods inside the vessel are fully submerged.

Yes, considering that this situation of "releasing radiation" was apparently planned a week ago for May 8, and that three reactor buildings were showing significant releases in the small hours of May 8 (Japan time), it's not totally unreasonable to consider that what we saw was that release.

The plain fact is that I can't see anything coming from those structures right now on the webcam. Like I said, it all died down just as the sun came up.

And thanks for your comments.
I had some matters to deal with but things are a bit better now. Hope to participate a bit more whenever I have anything to offer and time allows.

Thanks for the note.
Actually I installed it some days ago after reading about it on ATS. In fact, I think it was here in this thread that I first read of it. Works like a charm.

PM Kan apparently does not carry the weight he thought he did....money speaks louder.


N-plant execs stall on Kan's shutdown call

The Yomiuri Shimbun

Chubu Electric Power Co. executives were unable to agree Saturday on whether the utility should suspend operations at its Hamaoka nuclear power plant, a day after Prime Minister Naoto Kan asked the utility to do so due to concern a strong earthquake could cause another nuclear crisis.

The board members plan to discuss the matter again Sunday or later, company officials said. www.yomiuri.co.jp...

so just how much more water will they have to inject to cover the core?????? With the amount of water they have been injected, the core should have been covered weeks ago, or do I have it wrong

Nope you do not have it wrong. They've refilled those puppies 1000 times over. Remember the "plan", the last bullet point they presented was...PLUG LEAK. Well, they haven't been to locate all the myriad of leaks. It is not looking good

The problem is that if there are leaks in the vessel, they cannot keep it full. Also, if the core is still hot, it will boil away eventually even if there are no leaks. With out the designed coolant system, intact, and operating properly, the water they are inducing is only a short term fix to a very large problem.

Cattle farmers abandon hope

Yosuke Yagi and Yutaka Hojo / Yomiuri Shimbun Staff Writers

Livestock and dairy farmers in areas of Fukushima Prefecture where evacuations are planned have given up hope of continuing to breed cattle, due to the difficulty of finding relocation sites for the animals.

All residents in certain areas of the prefecture have been instructed to evacuate by the end of this month because of the accidents at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

The central and prefectural governments have provided no information about sites that could accommodate evacuated animals.

Making the farmers' situation even more difficult is that they would have to cover the cost of evacuating their cattle.

Kiichi Shigihara, a 62-year-old livestock farmer in the Hiso district of Iitatemura, Fukushima Prefecture, has 45 cattle. "My life's plan has been turned upside down," he said on Tuesday.

"I'm planning to sell my cattle, but prices have fallen and I'll wind up with nothing but debt," he said. www.yomiuri.co.jp...

Not to disagree with you in anyway, but to add to your thoughts. The night time releases may be thought safer as most people would be inside and less chance of being directly exposed to radiation. IMHO

In the past the people were told....

stay inside


Edit: I'm still keeping up with the thread, just have not had much to add,
Keep up the great work everyone!

Evacuation frustrates Iitatemura mayor

Shinichi Ikeda / Yomiuri Shimbun Staff Writer

FUKUSHIMA--Norio Kanno, mayor of Iitatemura, Fukushima Prefecture, must evacuate his entire village by the end of the month under a government order due to radiation leaks from the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

Kanno said the government needs to think more about the effects of the "loss of stability in life caused by the evacuation." He also expressed hope the village would overcome its current difficulties, as long as people "hold on to their feelings toward their hometown."

The following are excerpts of an interview with Kanno. www.yomiuri.co.jp...

more ripples....


Nuclear evacuees to visit no-entry zone from Tue.

The Yomiuri Shimbun

The government has notified residents of Kawauchimura, Fukushima Prefecture, of its decision to begin on Tuesday taking them on brief visits to their homes within the no-entry zone around the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

Because the number of evacuees from the village is relatively small, at about 350 people in 123 households, the government sees the village as a good candidate for the first round of home visits by residents.

The village is within the 20-kilometer radius of the Tokyo Electric Power Co. plant that has been designated a no-entry zone due to radiation leaks at the plant. The government will determine which residents wish to visit their homes, and will transport them to the village in buses for one visit on Tuesday and another on Thursday.
