that guardian link is very informative , detailing a chronological listing of events and even reveals false alarms and mis information with in Japanese civil response efforts.

A very alarming tsunami warning this morning now appears to be a false alarm. Sirens along the coast sounded and television and radio alerts said officials had warned of a wave up to three metres high. The Japanese meteorological agency is now saying they believe it to be a false alarm and that there was no sign of a quake large enough to trigger a tsunami, although broadcaster NHK is apparently reporting that a helicopter pilot observed a large incoming wave. The Guardian's Dan Chung and Jonathan Watts are reporting from the disaster zone. Their video on the aftermath near Sendai in Miyagi prefecture is here 2.50am: Japanese television earlier reported that the sea level had dropped five metres off the coast of Fukushima. The feeling in Japan is already tense following an earlier aftershock this morning, and much fear spreading across the country after unconfirmed reports of another tsunami. The Japanese Meteorological Agency says that no tsunami is expected.

Here's one America reporter in Japan stated...



Japan's top gov't spokesman says Fukushima's three reactors highly likely facing melting. about 5 hours ago via TweetDeck


Since it was five hours ago and news reporters seems still stated that it's high risk of meltdown. I don't know if it already start or already melted.

i Googled this tweet quote and found this journalist Steve Herman's twitter feed to be the origin of this. twitter.com...
his W7VOA twitter name is referring to www.voanews.com... , the news blog mr. herman writes for

he has just released

Another aftershock now at 0300 Tuesday. 11 minutes ago via TweetDeck

North America Safe From Radioactive Particles

Radioactive particles from the failing Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station pose little immediate risk to North America, and should fall into the Pacific before reaching western shores. Using a publicly available modeling system for airborne pollutants developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Weather Underground’s Jeff Masters has modeled the spread of radioactive plumes. So far, the “great majority of these runs” have seen the plumes float over the Pacific, reaching eastern Siberia and the western coast of North America in about a week. “Such a long time spent over water will mean that the vast majority of the radioactive particles will settle out of the atmosphere or get caught up in precipitation and rained out,” wrote Masters. “It is highly unlikely that any radiation capable of causing harm to people will be left in the atmosphere after seven days and 2000-plus miles of travel distance.” A press release issued March 13 by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission echoed Masters’ speculation. “Given the thousands of miles between the two countries, Hawaii, Alaska, the U.S. Territories and the U.S. West Coast are not expected to experience any harmful levels of radioactivity,” (pdf) they announced.


this is good news, as hopefully the highest radioactive toxicity will be dissipated over the ocean, NOT good for our planet or our selves, but a better near term outlook.

To explain what has and is happening for all who don't know. The Containment shell of the #3 reactor is leaking and has been since the first explosion. Every time there is an explosion it is from the Rods getting to hot and turning the water into Hydrogen. When that happens the Uranium pellets fall out of the rods onto the bottom of the reactor as a molten pool of hot Uranium. (Partial Meltdown)

So what we have is 3 reactors that have molten Uranium laying at the bottom of the reactors and they are trying to keep them from melting through the containment structure by drowning them with Sea water and in turn creating Hydrogen that they have to carefully release to the air as the pressure builds.

We know the one core container is cracked and leaking because of the Cesium on the outside of the plant. Every explosion weakens them more and they are not cooling the reactors at all with this process, they are just buying time.

Anymore explosions and we could have a complete meltdown of all three reactors through the bottom of the containment buildings and as soon as they hit water table the nightmare really begins.

For all that think the Americas are safe, perhaps you should research the 'effects of a plutonium reactor breach'. Japan's third reactor is a plutonium reactor. A plutonium breach is two million times more destructive that a regular nuclear power plant. Might search that. CNN covered it when FOX blocked an interview with an expert on nuclear reactors.

The PM says there is a fire in reactor 4 and that radioactive matter is probably leaking from the others.

The reactors are not in "meltdown". Not yet. Best to listen to Japanese reports instead of foreign accounts.
