Follow up people....
Someone said earlier that they call BC's health services and their is no such thing as 300 beds or have they relocate to kamloops.

From the conference translated here

yokosonews.com...

apparently a lot of places in japan are safe. So what bugs me is that local winds won't even carry those radiation but the stream will bring it all the way to the west coast.

I mean it is good to be concerned, but a lot of fear mongering here right now...

Im out!

I live in BC and theyve put up an emergency program and have set up 300 ICu beds in vancouver and victorian hospitals and weve been told to secure clean drinking water and stay indoors


I live in victoria, what is your source? Local media has not said anything along these lines yet. I'm a little worried as not many others seem to realize how bad the situation could be. I could try and make phone calls, who should I call? The hospitals, professors at the university? My MLA?

West Coast not at risk of fallout




But an American government body just south of British Columbia has issued a statement suggesting that those on the West Coast of North America have little to fear.

The Washington State Board of Health in Olympia said on Saturday that the "nuclear event" in Japan poses no human risk in Washington state, and that officials are conducting precautionary monitoring.

"The nuclear plant incident in the wake of the earthquake in Japan has raised concerns among some people in Washington about windblown radiation coming to our state," the statement said.

"The state Department of Health is conducting ongoing air monitoring for radiation to see if the nuclear plant incident in Japan has affected radiation levels in Washington."

There have been no elevated readings so far, it said.

Even in the event of a significant release from the reactor, radiation would be diluted before reaching the West Coast, the health agency said.

"Levels would be so low no protective action would be necessary," it said.

The director of the Center for Radiological Research at Columbia University also believes that the West Coast is facing very little risk.

"It's impossible to imagine any significant radioactivity reaching the West Coast of the U.S., because it's going to get so dispersed," said David Brenner, who studies radioactive dosing and works with groups involved in planning responses to nuclear disasters.

David Measday, a nuclear physicist at the University of British Columbia, also said that even in the event of a large-scale meltdown, the radiation would dissipate over distance.

Vancouver is far enough away to avoid serious complications, he said.

There is a lot of reason to be wary of anything coming out of the mainstream press, but stonerdude420 is a poster in this thread telling a story that would be reported in the press if it were true. I can't find a trace of it. Even the powers that be can't warn people to stay inside if they don't go to the media to do it. Nobody is reporting this.

The big story in Vancouver. It's "Whitecaps Day"!! I think they're the soccer team.

Bull, StonerDude420, if what you say is true, provide your source...I don't think this would be said on any FM stations but CBC and the ones on AM? CFAX 1070 would hardly say this until it is imminent...

I wonder...just saying.

This article would lend some credence to his (stonerdude) reply to post by StonerDude420
comments.


From the federal government to the province to individual communities, there are a multitude of emergency response plans in place, though the level of preparedness ranges.

A provincial autodialer that makes 1000 calls in 20 minutes to key stakeholders from RCMP to the coast guard activates in crucial situations, and hundreds of emails and faxes are sent immediately as well, said Kelli Kryzanowski, manager of catastrophic disaster planning with Emergency Management B.C.

But British Columbians should at least be ready to go 72 hours alone, her colleague Lyle noted, while currently in Japan its estimated help for some people may not arrive for an entire week. The province would have to prioritize its resources, and could be further delayed if landslides are triggered on the island and power is knocked out.

Hey koots751 - I'm also in Nelson BC - am hoping the mountains will give some protection, and I presume it depends mostly on the weather - like while the radiation is above whether or not its "raining" would make a difference to our exposures? I don't have 20 posts yet so can't pm you, was wondering if we've met... Overall, not sure there's a whole lot anyone can do to prepare/prevent exposure from this - depends on the winds and weather and immunity and, and, and...... Decades ago I realized it's impossible to prepare for every potential catastrophe and that we'd have to pick what to prepare for - never, ever considered nuclear...... how incredibly sad governments gave way to big business to do as they please to us and the planet and use nuclear *everywhere* on the planet in lieu of clean-burning coal plants.... they absolutely know better, they just don't care.

I'm here in Everett WA with military sources(me being one of them). I will fill you in if the ship makes a drastic turn around. It is leaving Hawaii today. That ship being the Lincoln

Greetings all, I too live in Vancouver, and there is nothing on any of the media regarding imminent radiation incoming. I do wonder how they would break this news anyway, as any hint at trouble incoming from Japan, would create serious panic, and the highways around here can barely handle a regular rush hour, never mind a mass exodus.

Yep. I'm just going to keep monitoring things.

It seems to me that even our pitiful excuse for government in Portland would be doing some sort of preparations if the entire population were at risk, even if its just to save thier own skin.

Prepared, and relaxed - that's me!

Poor people in Japan. I just can't imagine their pain!

Well that's not very apocalyptic - no stars for you!!


This is not going to impact the US in any significant way. Bad for the areas around the reactors, of course, but nothing for the West Coast US to fret over.

Of course, things could take a turn for the worse if the the big aftershock we're fearing causes some kind of explosive event of the core - but as it stands right now we should just be worrying about the poor Japanese people and not the remote chance of any significant radiation reaching the US.

Thanks for your logical outlook on the situation...and it is good to see some common sense here....and your words do a good job in not spreading panic...also as someone else mentioned...this is more about the immediate concerns of the Japanese who are very near and dear to the unfolding situation....And also as some well informed person kindly pointed out the radion will not be in the air and as i have tried to point out ...it is in a particulate matter.
hence the term fall out.
just keep watching because if people in Japan start falling dead from the radiation then there would be need for concern....and as also stated the people in the US military who had become exposed it was in close proximity to the event and also they recieved low dosage.
I am just a person who hates when people feed on the fear of others...and also as stated think of the poor thousands of people who have suffered in the tsunami.....put things in perspective.....i have many family members living on the coast of british columbia....so i myself have loved ones to think about...but to have people spread fear is not helpful.
I live in England myself...but i am from kamloops BC and most of my 8 brothers and sisters and their families live in Vancouver and Vancouver Island....and would i want harm to come to them...no....but to have people panic people in a negative way is foolish....and irresponsible....yes it would be nice if goverments were warm and fuzzy and we could trust them to give us reliable information and not treat us as imbeciles....but it is not the way it is so we need to learn and take the knowledge and understand the consequences for ourselves.
right now the situation is unfolding and even if the plant suffers complete meltdown the design at fukushima is a different monster than chernobyl...is has underground containment in the event of meltdown where chernobyl had no such facility.

I'm sure the relevant authorities are watching this situation carefully, but stonerdude sounds like he is deep in the bud and not watching the grow lamps like he should be. IMHO.

The only thing is that I wish that the government will just be open to us and the truth is that there will be world wide panic soon and the reason why is because the government keeps things from us. If they were more open we will be more prepared for the future,, but all they think about is money greed and not their people. Sad really.

Hi,all was just turn on the news,i am alittle bit concern about this nuclear reactor thing,i just heard that the ship Regan i think was exposed to some radiation,i do not feel like this is going to be resolved and we might be at risk.Can someone please tell me everything is alright i am really nervous

FAKE FAKE FAKE. Japan has already announced that radiation levels are back to normal. Hell they even say maybe only 160 people were exposed to non lethal doses of radiation and even any inhaled particles will not cause any health problems.

Now your saying all the cores melted down and there were plumes of radioactive dust injected into the atmosphere and is being carried by the jet stream?


ATS needs to go back to having MOD'S pick the most popular threads for front page viewing. Letting members flag threads until it's move to the front is ridiculous. NOTHING BUT TROLLS,DISINFORMATION AND MISINFORMATION. I will no longer rely on ATS for alternative news except for the space and science area. Anything else is a waste of time and brain power having to put up with crap nonsense like this post and thread. Here I come BBC, ATS lost a member and BBC gained one.

Yes, I agree and think they are on top of it.
They are not going to panic the people, and granted, panic is a worse enemy
most of the time.

So, lets all stay calm, and proceed with caution and prayers especially for those in Japan,
those people are in deprivation, and its very tragic. My heart goes out to all of them.

the article you posted may lend some credence but if you read it clearly it is to do with tsunami precautions to me otherwise why bother to mention land slides in the article.
just my observation...and also because they setup 300icu beds....why would that necessarily be radiation related...yet again more like quake and tsunami related to me.
once again fallout needs to come from particulate matter...and then depending on the concentrations and levels of radiactive material and prevailing winds that leave a hell of a lot of if.s maybes...and possibilities....
people of the west coast should be more tsunami and quake type activity aware than radiation aware...
once again look at the numbers of deaths caused by tsunami and quake related disasters than radiation type disasters.
I recommend if you live on a coastline take an inland vacation if possible for a month....
priorities people....great i took my potassium iodine but i got wiped out by a tsunami that hit a low laying area......DUH!!!!!.
I recommend you have a plan to get to highlands rather than worry if your going to be hit by a possible radio active cloud that could be tracked and have some forewarning.
