After watching the video feed for a few minutes, either there is a lot of fog between the camera and the buildings, or a lot of steam or smoke coming from them, since the towers seem to waver a lot, coming in and out of focus/visibility a small section at a time.

An emergency cooling operation, perhaps?

Really need an eye on the radiation readings right now, wish we had one in realtime.

Helicopter is part of Department of Energy radiation study
July 5, 2011
By Staff
NEW — 6 a.m. July 5, 2011
Western Washington residents should not be alarmed as a slow, low-flying helicopter scopes the area from July 11-28.
The helicopter is part of a U.S. Department of Energy aerial survey of the Seattle area. The agency is measuring baseline levels of radiation in order to make a comparison in the event of a nuclear emergency, a King County Office of Emergency Management email states.
The agency intends to measure radiation levels in nearby communities, but no area east of the western shore of Lake Sammamish is scheduled to be included. In order to take the measurements, the helicopter is due to fly at about 300 feet above the ground at about 70 mph.
The study is financed by a U.S. Department of Homeland Security grant and has been in development since 2009, prior to the Fukashima nuclear disaster in Japan, Sammamish Deputy City Manager Lyman Howard said.

I posted here a couple comments from article, please visit the link and read the entire thing.

You REALLY think the cost is worth it??

Warren O. on July 5th, 2011 1:01 pm
Well, it was planned before Fukushima so it’s got nothing to do with Fukushima, they don’t say it but by not saying it they are saying it. I guess any radiation levels they read are going to be normal. I wonder if they do find elevated radiation levels if they would tell us ?? Why not do a radiation scan to see how Fukushima has affected radiation levels ?? I’ve read we are all breathing 5 hot particles a day here in Seattle, but that is not a story, evidently… INVEST IN CANCER TREATMENT STOCK, you’ll get rich beyond compare !!

My 2 cents; we do have the baseline prior to fuku f-up and we can shove it down the appropiate throats come election day!

How NoSQL Is Helping Allay Seattle’s Radiation Fears
By Derrick Harris Mar. 31, 2011, 4:10pm PT 2 Comments

Researchers at the University of Washington utilized the Cloudant NoSQL database as part of an experiment that determined radiation levels in Seattle as a result of the recent Fukushima nuclear disaster are “well below alarming limits.” The research team, which includes Cloudant Founder and Chief Scientist Mike Miller (his other title is research associate professor of physics), studied particles captured from the five air filters at the university’s Physics and Astronomy building and used Cloudant’s CouchDB-based BigCouch database to store and process the data from its experiments.

I think it is really important that we still post links to early articles and images as these articles may be able to fill in the blanks and also the images may show some useful reference points. Sometimes in the early days of image releases, the company does not know what is going to be 'sensitive' information later on.

With that said, I am going to post some early links and some more recent ones here. If anyone ever analyses this humungous thread then any duplicates will be weeded out.

Fukushima's reactor 4 on fire again. Reactors 5 and 6 lose cooling functions (w/ Video)

With a fourth explosion rocking the Fukushima nuclear plant on Tuesday, danger of the spent nuke fuel pool boiling and radiation levels at the facility's gate increasing hundredfold, fears of a meltdown in Japan skyrocket.

Another fire broke out at Unit 4 of the Fukushima facility on Wednesday. The plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co., announced that firefighters are trying to put out the flames. According to the company, the new fire started because the initial blaze was not extinguished completely.

Meltdown fears in Japan

With a fourth explosion rocking the Fukushima nuclear plant on Tuesday, danger of the spent nuke fuel pool boiling and radiation levels at the facility's gate increasing hundredfold, fears of a meltdown in Japan skyrocket.

Smoke was seen floating above Unit 3 at the Fukushima nuclear plant on Wednesday, following a second fire which broke out at Unit 4 hours earlier.

According to a spokesperson for the Tokyo Electric Power Co., the smoke could indicate that the water in the fuel pool inside the reactor is boiling, the AP news agency reported.

...Fukushima plant personnel plan to remove the roof over reactors 5 and 6 to prevent hydrogen concentration and new blasts.

Japan suspends work at stricken nuclear plant

Japan's nuclear safety agency estimated that 70 percent of the rods have been damaged at the No. 1 reactor.

Japan's national news agency, Kyodo, said that 33 percent of the fuel rods at the No. 2 reactor were damaged and that the cores of both reactors were believed to have partially melted.

"We don't know the nature of the damage," said Minoru Ohgoda, spokesman for Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, or NISA. "It could be either melting, or there might be some holes in them."

Meanwhile, the outer housing of the containment vessel at the No. 4 unit erupted in flames early Wednesday, said Hajimi Motujuku, a spokesman for the plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co.

Fukushima Nuclear Reactor Workers Return

The reactor crews returned to the earthquake stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in northern Japan Wednesday after a plume of radioactive steam forced them away Tuesday.

The number of workers was increased from 50 to 100, and the radiation dose they can legally experience was doubled from 100 millisieverts to 250 millisieverts. Authorities said raising the exposure limit was “unavoidable due to the circumstances.”

Workers flee Japan nuclear plant as smoke rises

What caused the smoke to billow first from Unit 3 at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant and later from Unit 2 is under investigation, nuclear safety agency officials said. Still, in the days since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami wrecked the plant's cooling systems, both reactors have overheated and seen explosions. Workers were evacuated from the area to buildings nearby, though radiation levels remained steady, the officials said.

(Update) Cesium beyond Limit Found in Straw at Fukushima Pref. Cattle Farm

Fukushima, July 11 (Jiji Press)--High levels of radioactive cesium have been detected in dried straw at a cattle farm in the city of Minamisoma in the northeastern Japan prefecture of Fukushima, a prefectural government survey showed Monday.
In the survey, the Fukushima government checked water and feed at the farm on Sunday after the Tokyo metropolitan government released the results of its survey showing that cesium levels in meat from 11 cows shipped from the farm stood at 1,530-3,200 becquerels per kilogram, far higher than the limit of 500 becquerels prescribed under the food sanitation law.

TEPCO Puts Tally of Overexposed Workers at 6

Tokyo, July 11 (Jiji Press)--Tokyo Electric Power Co. on Monday put at six the tally of overexposed workers at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 power plant since the nuclear crisis there began on March 11.
The power firm finished detailed radiation testing on nine workers feared to have exceeded the emergency cumulative dose limit of 250 millisieverts. The reading for the one remaining worker was confirmed at 237.26 millisieverts.
As a result, six of the nine are now confirmed to have been exposed beyond the limit. The highest exposure among them was 678.08 millisieverts, received by a man in his 30s.

Radioactive Cesium above Limit Detected in Another Fukushima Beef

Shizuoka, July 11 (Jiji Press)--Radioactive cesium exceeding the legal limit was detected Monday in the meat of a cow from a Fukushima Prefecture farm that supplied 11 other cows recently found to have high levels of the radioactive material, the central Japan city of Shizuoka said Monday.
Levels of radioactive cesium stood at 1,998 becquerels per kilogram, against the limit of 500 becquerels, in the meat of the cow from the farm in Minamisoma in the northeastern Japan prefecture, according to the city.
Minamisoma is close to Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

FOUR MONTHS AFTER: Radiation scare causes Fukushima Prefecture to shrink

FUKUSHIMA--Taeko Henmi once took care of five children at a day-care center she ran out of her home, but a 5-year-old boy nicknamed Mo-kun is now the only one. The families of the five children all evacuated to other parts of the country after the Great East Japan Earthquake of March 11. The 50-year-old reopened her day-care center in early May after Mo-kun's family returned to Fukushima from Hokkaido.

Henmi used to take the children to parks and forests, even in the rain. But she now takes Mo-kun outdoors only twice a week due to lingering fears about radiation from the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

The U.S. wants to bomb Fukushima - Prof. Christopher Busby says on Alex Jones



Economics Newspaper
(Rather awkward translation from French)


Professor Christopher Busby of the European Committee on Radiation Risks hard reveals that French and American nuclear experts have clashed on the extreme measures taken in Fukushima.

The U.S. would consider bombing the plant to drown in the ocean.

nuclear expert Chris Busby found today in an interview with Alex Jones Show, the American and French nuclear advisers clashed on emergency measures to take in Fukushima.

According

Chris Busby, the situation would be far more tragic than the authorities admit, and amply justify the passage of the accident at 7. Indeed, many reactors would be open air and their reaction out of control, involving a permanent rejection of radionuclides including plutonium from the core 3, which was fueled by MOX.

radiation levels became too high so that teams can be kept on-site experts quarrel over the choice of more radical solutions.

The U.S. would consider bombing the plant to drown in the sea

France, which provided the MOX want to believe it is possible to embed the reactor in concrete.

quarrel reflects the inability of experts to the magnitude of the disaster of titanic proportions and the actual and potential impacts that leave the authorities helpless.

We live

consequence of the denial syndrome conscious of the nuclear industry. Disaster of such magnitude and consequences so dramatic have simply not been considered because they are controlled or justifiable.

So we decided to ignore them altogether and illusions. The end of the proposed measures shows how the authorities are helpless.
Loss of control

n’état not above board, the media blackout is total and the minimization of criminal protection provisions in the event of cancellation.

radionuclide pollution in the U.S. has been minimized by higher permissible dose.

areas vacated by the Japanese authorities would, according to Chris Busby, far too limited and it is urgent to provide the inhabitants of an area of ​​200 km around the plant with water and food from areas uncontaminated. Now this area includes a large 200 km from the city of Tokyo and its 32 million inhabitants.

measurements made by ground samples show that the “spots” of soil contamination in the exclusion zone could be more radioactive Fukushima, more toxic and more extensive than Chernobyl, despite the situation in the seaside plant which almost halved the area of ​​potential impact.

Most worrying is the inability of authorities to put an end to the contamination of the environment, whether air, land or sea in which tons of radioactive water are continuously discharged. These pollutants are widely dispersed by currents and winds as in this wide planet.

#Fukushima I Nuke Plant: MP Alleges It May Not Have Been a Hydrogen Explosion on March 12



Ex-SKF



If what Takeshi Tokuda, Member of the Lower House (House of Representatives) in the Japanese Diet, says is true, the explosion that blew up the Reactor 1 building roof and side walls may not have been an hydrogen explosion as the government has insisted, but something decidedly more serious.

From his April 17 blog entry (original in Japanese):

[Tokuda is writing about his day on April 15, including a visit to Minami-Soma City, which has been designated as "planned evacuation zone". He visited the Minami Soma City General Hospital and spoke with Dr. Oikawa, and the following is what he heard from Dr. Oikawa.]

そして及川副院長の話から驚愕の事実を知る。

Then I heard a startling story from Dr. Oikawa.

3月12日の一度目の水素爆発の際、2㎞離れた双葉町まで破片や小石が飛んできたという。

On the first hydrogen explosion on March 12 [Reactor 1], broken pieces [of...??] and small stones [from the explosion] landed in Futaba-machi, 2 kilometers away from the Plant.
そしてその爆発直後、原発の周辺から病院へ逃れてきた人々の放射線量を調べたところ、十数人の人が10万cpm を超えガイガーカウンターが振り切れていたという。

When the hospital checked the radiation level on the people who escaped from around the nuke plant after the explosion, there were more than 10 people whose radiation level exceeded 100,000 cpm [counts per minute], beyond what could be measured by the geiger counter the hospital had.

[100,000 cpm is the new level that the Japanese government set that requires decontamination. Before the Fukushima accident, the level was 6,000 cpm, and on March 12 it was still 6,000 cpm.]

それは衣服や乗用車に付着した放射性物質により二次被曝するほどの高い数値だ。

It is the level that threatens the secondary radiation contamination.

しかし、そこまで深刻な状況だったとは政府から発表されていない。

However, it has never been disclosed by the government that it was such a serious situation.

病院に立ち寄ることなく、被ばくしたことも知らずに、家に帰って子供を抱きしめた人もいたかもしれない。

Some people, without stopping by at the hospital and without knowing that they had been exposed to high radiation, may have gone home and hugged their children.

そこで爆発から2時間後の枝野官房長官の会見を読み直してみた。

So I re-read the transcript of the press conference given by Chief Cabinet Secretary Edano two hours after the explosion.

水素爆発は起こったが、格納容器が破損していないことを確認した。

He said that there was a hydrogen explosion, but it was confirmed that the Containment Vessel was not damaged.

従って原子炉格納容器内の爆発ではないことから、放射線物質が大量に漏れ出すものではない、と述べている。

It was not the explosion within the Containment Vessel, therefore no large amount of radioactive materials would be released, Edano said.

13日での会見では、バスにより避難した双葉町の住民の皆さんのうち、9名が測定の結果、被ばくの可能性が あることを発表した。
In his March 13 press conference, he announced that 9 people who had evacuated from Futaba-machi by bus may have been exposed to radiation.

この9名のうち4名の方が少ない方で1800cpm、多い方で40000cpmの数値。

4 of them had the low dose of 1,800 cpm, the highest dose was 40,000 cpm, he said.

その上で専門家の判断によると、こうしたものが表面に付いているという状況に留まるならば、健康に大きな被 害はない、とも述べている。

Edano also said that according to the experts there would be no serious negative effect on health as long as such matters [radioactive materials] stay on the surface.

南相馬市立総合病院で確認されているだけでも十数人が高い数値を示していた深刻な状況が、政府には情報とし て上がっていなかったのだろうか。

Did the government not know about this serious situation at Minami-Soma City General Hospital where more than 10 people were found to have been exposed to high radiation levels?

もし情報が上がっていなかったとしたら、官邸の情報収集能力と危機管理の観点から問題であり、情報が上がっ ていたのに意図的に正確な情報を伝えなかったのであれば、それは政府による情報操作であり、犯罪に近い行為 と言える。

If the government didn't know, that would cast doubts on the capability of the Prime Minister's Office to gather information, and would be problematic from the point of crisis management; if they knew but decided to suppress the information, that would be the manipulation of information by the government, almost a criminal act.

Emergency: Unusual Events Declared - Salem and Ft. Calhoun...



Fort Calhoun:

UNUSUAL EVENT DECLARED DUE TO SUSPECTED INTRODUCTION OF CONTRABAND INTO THE PROTECTED AREA The licensee declared an Unusual Event due to indications that potentially dangerous contraband had been introduced into the protected area. After further investigation, the licensee determined that the indication of contraband was due to incorrect interpretation of screening equipment imaging. The licensee exited its Unusual Event declaration at 1942 CDT. The licensee continues to investigate the circumstances leading to this event declaration. The licensee notified State and local authorities and will notify the NRC Resident Inspector To top of page Power Reactor


Salem:

UNUSUAL EVENT DECLARED BASED ON REACTOR COOLANT LEAK GREATER THAN 10 GPM "At 2053 on July 14, 2011 Salem unit 2 declared an Unusual Event due to reactor coolant system leakage greater than 10 gallons per minute. While performing a monthly Emergency Core Cooling System vent of the high head safety injection piping a motor operated valve was opened and a leak developed on the high head piping greater than 10 gallons per minute. The leak rate was approximately 11-15 gallon per minute. The leak was terminated when the motor operated valve was closed. The time of the leak was about 6 minutes." At this time the leak is believed to be from a crack on the Boron Injection Tank (BIT) relief valve line which is connected to the high head piping. A total of approximately 90 gallon of reactor coolant leaked into the BIT room. The licensee has declared the high head safety injection inoperable and is proceeding to shutdown under Tech Spec 3.0.3. The license has notified appropriate State and local authorities. The licensee will notify the NRC Resident Inspector. * * * UPDATE FROM KARL HANPHO TO VINCE KLCO ON 7/15/11 AT 0025 EDT* * * "Salem Unit 2 declared an Unusual Event due to Reactor Coolant System (RCS) leakage being greater than 10 gpm and pressurizer level decreasing. Leakage was estimated to be approximately 15 gpm. The leakage was determined to be from a weld on the high head charging injection relief valve connection. This leaking weld impacts both trains of high head charging/safety injection. Both trains of high head charging/safety injection were declared inoperable at 2038 [EDT] on July 14, 2011, entering TS 3.0.3. Salem Unit 2 began the Technical Specification shutdown in accordance with TS 3.0.3 at 2136 [EDT]. The technical specification shutdown is being reported in accordance with 10CFR50.72(b)(2)(i) and RAL 11.1.1.a. "In addition since the leakage from the weld on the high head charging/safety injection piping exceeded the analyzed limit for ESF leakage outside containment, this event is also being reported in accordance with 10CFR50.72(b)(3)(v) and RAL 11.2.2.b as a condition that prevents the ability to mitigate the consequences of an accident. "Salem unit 2 is currently at 27% and reducing power."

Unit 3 Nitrogen Injection...little increase in pressure?




The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is checking for gas leaks in the No. 3 reactor, into which nitrogen is being injected to prevent a hydrogen explosion.



injected more than 200 cubic meters of nitrogen into the reactor's containment vessel since Thursday evening. But it says the interior air pressure has increased very little.

Watching the TBS cam it struck me as odd the way the steam/smoke plume was behaving. It seemed to be moving around a lot more than wind or ground motion would warrant.

Then it occurred to me:

The steam plume was following the path of water sloshing in the building. It would appear that stuff inside that building is so hot, physically hot, that it flashed hot water into steam the moment they came into contact.

Adds a level of scary for me, if I'm correct.

Can anyone pick holes in my thought process and conclusion?

EnBW says to sue over planned nuclear fuel tax

FRANKFURT | Fri Jul 15, 2011 8:26am EDT
(Reuters) - Southwest German utility EnBW said it would take legal action against a planned nuclear fuel tax that it estimated would amount to a three-digit million euro burden on the company per year.

EnBW said that in its view the charge is in breach of both constitutional as well as European law.

"After thorough examination and intense discussions, EnBW has reached the conviction that it is necessary to start a legal process," the utility said in a statement on Friday.

The tax is a federal government charge levied on nuclear operators in conjunction with an extension of nuclear life cycles, which was planned last autumn.

Since Japan's Fukushima nuclear crisis, however, Germany has enacted a hasty change in nuclear policy, which entails closure of 41 percent of old capacity and a plan to shut the rest by 2022.

German utilities say they should not be made to pay the tax, because the reason for complying with it -- life cycle additions -- no longer applies.

They also say a national nuclear exit plan in 2001 ruled out further financial burdens on the nuclear industry and that European law also forbids discrimination.

Other utilities including RWE and E.ON already have filed objections against the tax, which the government wants to yield about 1.3 billion euros in revenue annually.

EnBW said the tax was payable now that its Philippsburg 2 nuclear reactor of 1,458 megawatts capacity had finished a maintenance outage, during which new fuel elements were inserted.

Its complaint will be filed with the tax authority in Karlsruhe, through which the tax will be collected.

EnBW initially had 4,624 MW of nuclear capacity but since Germany's policy U-turn has had to idle 1,766 MW of that.

A fourth nuclear operator, Vattenfall Europe, can no longer bring any one of its two reactors in Germany back online, but it too has said it wants compensation for having to impair the book value of its plants and increase provisions for dismantling them.

Noticed that TEPCO hasn't erected much of that 1 millimeter thick "protective" cover for Unit 1 yet. Actually haven't seen much activity at all with the cranes.

And such minuscule progress with the water recycling system.

So more excrement into the ocean and air...lovely. Don't know how in the hell the Japanese are dealing with this. I would have had 49 million nervous breakdowns by now.
