In general, a 144 square foot room (12x12) with a standard ceiling height, when sealed will support one average person for 1 1/2 days without issues. So a house of 1440 sqr. feet should support 1 person for 15 days after being sealed. After that you start suffering CO2 issues.

Beta Gross Count Rate (CPM): 33
What does this mean? Anyone?


At a guess you'd want to be looking at the Beta Gross Count Rate which is 33 here, anywhere between 1-60 is considered in the normal & safe range.....

Hey guys I'm rushing this response because I have to go to school, I'm just here to say that I probably won't be back for a while because today we'll be moving into some mini-hotel (Navy Lodge) because we're moving out of our house. There is no Internet there and by the time I get to the states (if everything goes well) there might not be Internet there available for me either. As soon as I can get online I'll post here what happens. If things happen where I don't get internet, then I'll probably have to wait until we get back to Japan, which will be late April, but I doubt it. I think I'll get access somehow
. The weather right now is sunny but VERY windy. Hopefully today will be a good day. Bye ATS (wish me luck!)

I started reading this thread when it opened but I missed the last 10 pages while working. It is late here so I am off to bed so I won't read everything but I wanted to drop a note regarding some of the specifics about the area that iAnjo is living in (I lived there for 10 years) and also an update from a friend.

Camp Zama is here: link

NAF Atsugi is here: link

As you can see NAF Atsugi is an air field (Naval Air Facility). They have on-site, or access to, 727s, 757s, Airbus aircraft and anything else they can land there. If an evac is necessary Zama, where iAnjo is, is only about 4.8km (if memory serves) from NAF Atsugi, gate to gate. If all else fails Zama and Atsugi have helicopters and can ferry people that way. So, if, or when, they decide to evac there will be no problem getting people out.

Additionally, all military and civilians working in Japan for the military are required to have a NEO package. This is an evac package in the event something bad happens. Everyone knew Japan would have a bad quake some day and there is always the possibility that North Korea would do something...odd...so everyone is required to plan for an evac. So, the planning is already done.

The bases are quite safe as well. They both have large clinics on them staffed with numerous doctors and nurses as well as corpsmen. They have various health specialists and scientists who are already there who can test for radiation levels and treat any illnesses. So that is covered as well.

Finally, all the buildings on the bases are made of cement brick and most are multi-floor (well, except some of Zama and Sagamihara housing, those are wood). This is good to prevent exposure.

So, iAnjo is about as safe as you can get in Japan.

As for the update. An old japanese friend who lives and works in Ayase (NAF Atsugi) has stated that there is some level of heightened radiation but all the docs on base say it is still OK and that everyone should stay inside. They are having rolling blackouts throughout the city still. Multiple times a day and for multiple hours.

Conspiracy theorists: there is no conspiracy. If there were high enough radiation levels there would be no way to keep that a secret. The docs would check and they would tell someone in their clinic who would tell someone who would eventually tell some gossipy LT or E-3 who would just blab to everyone. These bases are small and everyone knows everyone. Like a small town, there are no secrets. So, the military isn't keeping people in the dark and allowing them to die while hiding some awful truth. They are doing what the military does. Keeping everyone calm while in a back room someplace there are a bunch of senior officers who are frantically brainstorming on every possible scenario and then finding a solution to each one of those. This way, no matter what, iAnjo, and everyone else, will be taken care of.

Nihon no tame ni inoru!

Good luck! My heart is with everyone out there! Let me know if you need any advice about how to protect yourself I'm a medical student. I was just wondering is there any way they can airlift people out of there? What's the airport situation?

Hey everyone I'm at school using the same iPhone I started this thread with. Many students have are leaving/left the school and are moving out of the country and today the school turned down all the rumors about evacuation but said that all sponsors are being told to get ready, just in case. Everything's been normal today, so for now it's smooth sailing. Today's been the calmest in a while..again, this might be a final post for a while..

Things like radon can permeate concrete.

It's a matter of time before someone gets really sick from allergic reactions or something.

How many of the students are leaving because it's the end of the school year?

I'm thinking you should stay in the US and not go back to Japan at the end of April..... I'm hearing it may be uninhabitable. But, maybe that's just the chatter from doom and gloomers. Gotta remember to try to think positive.
