Any pressure/temperature high enough to blow a steel pressure vessel (the reactor), will not have a problem with concrete... and when it gets hot enough, the concrete itself will melt.

"2.14pm The wind over the radiation-leaking nuclear plant in northern Japan will blow inland from the north-east and later from the east today" the Japan Meteorological Agency said, according to Reuters. Harmful radiation can spread via wind and rain.

*groan*...there is just too much to keep up with.

My main concern right now (other than for the people of Japan) is if I need to worry about the safety of my family.

I think that's a question best left for RedNeck. I'd suggest having potassium iodine ready, but not to necessarily start taking it just yet. This is only the beginning; don't deplete your supplies before absolutely necessary.

I will be honest, I have steered clear of AJ when looking for answers, you know the old adage of keep your friends close but keep your enemies even closer?

Now I guess I better go listen to or read your link although I may regret it...

I already ordered it, we should have it by tomorrow. I am monitoring the live monitoring stations and following the news...but frankly, my confidence in waning now. Seems the worse possible scenario is coming true.

Neutron radiation is what is produced from the uranium itself. It means the fuel rods are exposed to the atmosphere.

More confirmation of my earlier post.

Breaking News


Radiation is spewing from damaged reactors at a crippled nuclear power plant in tsunami-ravaged northeastern Japan in a dramatic escalation of the 4-day-old catastrophe. The prime minister has warned residents to stay inside or risk getting radiation sickness.

In a nationally televised statement, Prime Minister Naoto Kan said radiation has spread from the three reactors of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant in one of the hardest-hit provinces in Friday's 9.0-magnitude earthquake and the ensuing tsunami. He told people living within 19 miles (30 kilometers)

"The level seems very high, and there is still a very high risk of more radiation coming out," Kan said.

Believe it or not, I am still a proponent of nuclear power. If that plant I worked in is completed (as is slated to happen if this doesn't change things), it will bring this whole area out of economic despair and poverty.

But I am also for common-sense reasoning with nuclear power. They should never be built on known fault lines, and especially not when designed to the largest known quake level. That is a 0% safety margin.

TheRedneck


How can you have a 0% safety margin when there is a profit motive. A company's highest goal is to generate the greatest profit at the least expense.

Think of the economic despair and poverty that will result from the events at Fukushima.

I guess it wouldn't have the same effect if they didn't use "Spewing" and sound like they're trying to make us crap our pants.

Kyodo headline says that a hydrogen explosion occurred at Reactor 4; Reuters reported this a hour and twenty minutes earlier.

I haven't seen this on any other website or heard it on a feed, or seen a picture/video of it. I am thinking that Reuters may have mixed this up with Reactor 2 (but the PM of Japan had already addressed this 30 minutes prior)? Little confused at this.

Yeah, like that how they lie for days and now decide to let everyone know

I guess that is their way.

My best guess right now is the main problem will be the I-131 in low doses, lower if you live east of the Cascade Range. Precipitation will wash most of the iodine out of the air.

I would recommend having potassium iodide ready and monitoring news for any indication of rising levels. Remember it is more effective at blocking I-131 exposure if taken just before contamination occurs.

I believe iodine-131 is the commonly-mentioned brownish cloud? Can anyone verify this?
