Released Japan 10 Mins ago its getting worse again the spent fuel container that is not covered by a containment vessel, is it though in one of the reactors with no roof?

1000: A Japanese nuclear safety official has confirmed reports that the water inside the waste fuel storage pool for the number 4 Fukushima reactor may be boiling, AP reports. Hidehiko Nishiyama refused to comment on the potential risks from the rising temperatures caused by a failure of cooling systems and said the plant's operator was considering what to do about theproblem.

A little update from yandex news (russia)


Pay attention!

Do not panic.
Despite the terrible images on television,accident which took place at the Fukushima nuclear power plant-1 so far is not even close to be compared in scope and possible consequences of Chernobyl.

1. Currently, the radiation background in Russia and in the Sea of Okhotsk is normal, the wind blows from the mainland to Japan, referring all potential emissions into the ocean and south of Japan.

2 . Buying a dosimeter, do not be scared of increased readings from 0.06 to 0.2 mSv / h (from 6 to 20 mR / h) when it was brought home or to the office. Normal (standard), radiation background in most cities is the value till 0.33 mSv / h (33 mR / h) - because many rocks such as granite, often have such activity. You have to Worry only if there is a steady trend of increasing value more than 0.33 mSv / h (33 mR / h), and it is confirmed by multiple devices (unfortunately, the reliability of domestic dosimeter leaves much to be desired). MOE staff conduct regular monitoring of the situation - trust their professionalism.

3 . Never try to drink iodine tincture (commonly used for treatment of cuts and small wounds (even heavily diluted with water) bought in a drugstore for the prevention of nuclear desease this way you may harm yourself even more than if you appear at the territory of damaged nuclear plant.

EDIT CALENDER ORIGINAL POSTER reomoved story as panda not from quake apparently.


Some warmth in the present terrible situation, and also to make us realise that the damage and destruction to animals and birds, dolphins by the reactors is as great to humans.

The world needs to hug itself like this there is soo much pain and saddness and fear at the moment.

Props to Calender on 8.9 Quake Hits Japan Thread

The image has been distributed rapidly on social websites due to the tenderness of the situation.

Edit BBC live saying the weather patterns are dispersing any radiation towards the sea away from Japan.

TEPCO is reporting only the status of reactor #4 at at Fukushima Dai-ichi



Press Release (Mar 15,2011) Damage to the Unit 4 Nuclear Reactor Building at Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Station
At approximately 6:00am, a loud explosion was heard from within the power station. Afterwards, it was confirmed that the 4th floor rooftop area of the Unit 4 Nuclear Reactor Building had sustained damage. After usage, fuel is stored in a pool designated for spent fuel. Plant conditions as well as potential outside radiation effects are currently under investigation. TEPCO, along with other involved organizations, is doing its best to contain the situation. Simultaneously, the surrounding environment is being kept under constant surveillance.

Not good at all especially as they were hotter than a cup of tea last time could be measured this is not good at all again:



The temperature of the water in the spent fuel storage pool for Unit 4 was 183 degrees Fahrenheit (84 degrees Celsius) on Monday, when it was last measured. No measurements have been available since then, Nishiyama said.

"We have no information about whether the spent fuel rods are exposed," he said.

I feel so helpless in the face of what we see unfolding in front of us, can only send healing loving vibes thoughts, but soo many people animals children need love and caring and touch now, and maybe as much as the basic neccesities, if they are to have the strength in the coming months to rebuild the purely physical aspect of their lives.

EDIT HOAX CIRCULATING

#
1033: Some readers have been emailing the BBC about an "urgent" news flash purportedly from the BBC advising people in "Asian countries" to take certain steps in light of the radiation leak at the Fukushima plant in Japan, particularly if it is raining. Please be advised this is fraudulent and this advice has NOT been issued by the BBC.
BBC

I dont understand how people do this with so much danger of further death and suffering by their actions, like in the UK when people posted on PeopleFinder Sites that relatives were known to be dead when it was a hoax..... sick absolutely sick...

1038: The radiation dosages of up to 400 millisieverts per hour recorded at the Fukushima plant "are levels that you have to take very seriously indeed to ensure you avoid immediate health effects", Professor Richard Wakeford from the Dalton Nuclear Institute at the University of Manchester tells the BBC World Service. He says Japanese authorities will be imposing a ban on food and drink from the area and issuing iodine tablets to block the intake of radioactive iodine from the thyroid.

that doesn't sound very good, altho i dont know what the actual normal reading should be...

just an update on the reactors from kyodo news...



The following is the known status as of Tuesday evening for each of the six reactors at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant and the four reactors at the Fukushima No. 2 plant, both in Fukushima Prefecture, crippled by Friday's magnitude 9.0 earthquake and ensuing tsunami.

Fukushima No. 1

-- Reactor No. 1 - Cooling failure, partial melting of core, vapor vented, hydrogen explosion, seawater pumped in.

-- Reactor No. 2 - Cooling failure, seawater pumped in, fuel rods fully exposed temporarily, damage to containment system, potential meltdown feared.

-- Reactor No. 3 - Cooling failure, partial melting of core feared, vapor vented, seawater pumped in, hydrogen explosion, high-level radiation measured nearby.

-- Reactor No. 4 - Under maintenance when quake struck, fire caused possibly by hydrogen explosion at pool holding spent fuel rods, pool water levels feared receding.

-- Reactor No. 5 - Under maintenance when quake struck.

-- Reactor No. 6 - Under maintenance when quake struck.

Fukushima No. 2

-- Reactor No. 1 - Cooling failure, then cold shutdown.

-- Reactor No. 2 - Cooling failure, then cold shutdown.

-- Reactor No. 3 - Cold shutdown.

-- Reactor No. 4 - Cooling failure, then cold shutdown.

'Morning Elf,
Thank you for the picture - just so humbling.
A thank you also for the heads-up over the 'hoax'...


I dont understand how people do this with so much danger of further death and suffering by their actions, like in the UK when people posted on PeopleFinder Sites that relatives were known to be dead when it was a hoax..... sick absolutely sick...


Agreed. I just don't get it. And the sick jokes? We're even seeing them right here in our thread - people making grossly inappropriate 'word plays' thinking they're being so witty. People like that just make me feel such pity.

I'm going back to USTWRAP and start looking for more new info. I had heard #5and #6 were extremely compromised (even though they were not 'working' during the earthquake) and I'd like to get some more info on that situation.

peace

TOKYO | Tue Mar 15, 2011 10:26am GMT

TOKYO (Reuters) - Following are main developments after a massive earthquake struck northeast Japan on Friday and set off a tsunami.

- Death toll is expected to exceed 10,000, and rescue workers are continuing to search northeastern coastal cities for survivors.

* United Nations weather agency says winds are dispersing radioactive material over the ocean, and there is no danger for Japan or the region.

* Nuclear power plant operator TEPCO has pulled 750 workers from its earthquake-hit Fukushima Daiichi plant since Tuesday morning, the firm says.

- Japan's nuclear safety agency says there were two holes of 8-metres square in a wall of the outer building of the quake-hit Fukushima Daiichi No.4 reactor after a blast in the morning.

- Radiation levels in Chiba prefecture neighbouring Tokyo are more than 10 times above normal levels, Kyodo News reports.

- Radiation levels fall at quake-stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant on the northeastern coast, the Japanese government says, after an earlier spike in radiation.

- People within a 30 km radius of the facility urged to stay indoors.

- Radiation levels rise in Tokyo but it was not a problem, the city government says. "Minute levels" of radiation detected in the capital. according to Kyodo. Radiation levels in Saitama near Tokyo were 40 times normal level - not enough to cause human damage, but enough to stoke panic in the capital.

- Some residents leave the capital while others stock up on food and supplies.

- Radiation levels in the city of Maebashi, 100 km (60 miles) north of the capital, Tokyo, were up to 10 times normal on Tuesday, Kyodo news agency said, quoting the city government.

* Rolling blackouts will affect 5 million households on Tuesday, TEPCO says.

- Japan's benchmark Nikkei average closes down 10.55 percent and the broader TOPIX index fell 9.47 percent, their largest percentage falls since October 2008. European shares followed, falling to their lowest in 14 weeks.

- Japan's central bank offers to inject 8 trillion yen (61 billion pounds) into the banking system.
