I was watching last night and that fog was thick dude, it started at ground level and so quickly it was everywhere.
The cam was zoomed in to R3 & 4, all you could make out was the tops of the cooling towers and then gone.
It was like looking out the window of a airplane at 30,000ft travelling through cloud. A hour later, grey screen.
FWIW, I can still here sounds on the webcam, christ only knows what they are?

Now Des if you would like someone to be upset at you can figure out whom is responsible for this blog , I cannot seem to find an individuals name any where on it ( which is a bit odd for a blog) and oddly it claims to have been on the web since 2006 , but I find nothing earlier that the month of march this year ( perhaps I AM JUST HAVING A BAD DATA DAY)

In mid-March trusted source with proven hi-level access to LDP told me severity of #Fukushima-1 would be revealed only after few months.

U.S. Ready To Support Fukushima Effort 'For Years': Roos
TOKYO (Nikkei)--The U.S. will spare no effort to help Japan end the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear crisis, Ambassador John Roos recently told The Nikkei, saying it is in the world's interest "to put the best minds to work" on the challenges that remain.
The administration of President Barack Obama "has made it clear from the very beginning that this is a multidimensional problem" that will go on for "years and even decades," Roos said in an interview this week.
"And it is the full intent (of) the United States to be of assistance to Japan in any way possible for not only the initial stage ... but months and years to come," he added.
Nuclear Regulatory Commission experts and other specialists continue to keep watch on the situation at Fukushima Daiichi from the U.S. embassy, backed by colleagues in the U.S. in an effort involving "probably hundreds of experts," according to the ambassador.

THE operator of Japan's stricken Fukushima nuclear plant reported new problems yesterday, including a water leak from a reactor vessel and another spill of contaminated water into the ocean.
The update by Tokyo Electric Power Company came as the government announced a cull of thousands of cattle and other livestock now roaming the 20km evacuation zone around the Fukushima plant.
Emergency crews have been battling to bring the tsunami-hit and radiation-leaking plant into stable "cold shutdown" some time between October and January.
The water level inside had fallen below the bottom of the 4m-long fuel rods, suggesting they had been exposed to the air, increasing the risk of a dangerous full meltdown.[...www.theaustralian.com.au...]
Advice on radiation exposure from Japanese nuclear accident
Advice for Australians remaining in Japan on food and water precautions, the availability and use of potassium iodide tablets and on appropriate sheltering from radiation if required have been provided by Australia's Chief Medical Officer and the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA).
Extensive advice on these new topics of concern, together with information for people returning from Japan and for use by GPs is contained on the ARPANSA website and is updated regularly.
he ARPANSA modelling of airborne radioactive material released from Fukushima Dai-ichi predicted that during the 24 hours, for releases starting from Monday 9 May mid-morning, any plumes of airborne radioactive material would predominately be pushed north and east, mainly over Northern Japan. The modelling predicted that landfall is not likely to occur over Tokyo during this time.
For the following 24 hours, for releases starting from Tuesday 10 May mid-morning, changing weather systems would push any plumes of airborne radioactive material to the east and then south-west, over Southern Japan. Landfall in Tokyo may be expected during this time. The radiation levels from these plumes would be very low, with negligible consequences to health.
For the following 36 hours, for releases starting from Wednesday 11 May mid-morning, any plumes of airborne radioactive material would predominantly be pushed to the north-west, over Northern Japan. Landfall in Tokyo is not expected during this time.
Long-range modelling (up to 12 days) for releases during this time period show that the general plume behaviour includes movement over Russia and USA, as well as circulation over the North Pacific Ocean. The radiation levels from these plumes would be minimal and the health consequences negligible. Due to weather patterns either side of the equator, there will be minimal plume movement to the Southern Hemisphere.
Discussions continue with medical organisations and state and territory health authorities on these issues. Further information will continue to be provided by the Australian Government as the situation develops.

"There must be a large leak," Junichi Matsumoto, a general manager at the utility also known as TEPCO, told a news conference. "The fuel pellets likely melted and fell, and in the process may have damaged ... the pressure vessel itself and created a hole," he added.
