Good luck to you! Please try and get back with us, and hopefully this thread, or U2U me to let me know how you are. I'll be thinking of you and your family. Stay safe!

p.s. Not a priority by any means, but if you have a camera available try and take some pics.

First good news I've heard in days. From the looks of things you are getting out in time.

Good luck and safe travels.

Finally, I'm on a laptop with internet.

Here's the story. First I get home, it was a mess. We had to clean the house, and transfer stuff from the house to the mini-hotel. Once we got to the mini-hotel, my father was checking in, and the person at the counter turned the TV on.

I have to go, I'll continue this later

But for now, everyone's getting evacuated, we're just not sure if we are because of Saturday's plans.

All the best iAnjo.
My concern is why have they waited this long to evacuate you what has changed?
Also Is it just your family or the whole town?

Update 10:16: Fourteen elderly patients after they are deceased from a hospital near Fukushima Dai'ichi were evacuated. Meanwhile, experts warn that the victims of the earthquake should not be forgotten, now will focus on the threat of nuclear disaster.

Sorry, I had to go.

Ok, I'll continue. When the person at the counter turned on the television, it was the captain of the base making an announcement. Everyone had to evacuate, but it was voluntary. Now it's mandatory. Now this evacuation is taking place, however only 10k people will be flown out of Japan each day, with a total of 86k people in all Bases from the USA. According to the Captain, Obama assigned this to happen.

AHH BRB again. My friends keep interrupting, they think they'll never see me again..

Dry Ice to help cool Japanese Nuclear Meltdown-- Almost Freeze the seawater as it is applied...


First time poster with eyes on the disaster unfolding in Japan. Devastation there has surpassed unimaginable and is headed to inconceivable in a hurry. In the day in age of distracting viral videos and hollywood, I pray this post finds its way through that atrocious maze to help all those in harms way. By no means is this a solution to the problem, but I believe it can be an immediate application to attempt cooling in the meltdown to doomsday. We need to at least attempt to lower the temperature of the seawater flooding the containment vessels. This should be easily deduced to the point of how much of a dry ice core is needed at the center of the flooding pipes/hoses to almost freeze the water applied. Also could be added to helicopter dumps. Sure this may only change the water by 30 degrees or so, but right now I feel every idea is needed. Godspeed to all those in harms way. We need ideas now people. Time to focus. What about divide and conquer? Can we find a way to siphon off small amounts of the nuclear pool enabling temperature to be managed more effectively. There is a solution people.... find it!

Dry Ice Facts from Wiki

Plumbers use equipment that forces pressurised liquid CO2 into a jacket around a pipe; the dry ice formed causes the water to freeze, forming an ice plug, allowing them to perform repairs without turning off the water mains. This technique can be used on pipes up to 4 in (100 mm) in diameter.[22]

Dry ice is also useful for the de-gassing of flammable vapours from storage tanks — the sublimation of dry ice pellets inside an emptied and vented tank causes an outrush of CO2 that carries with it the flammable vapours.[28]

Alright. Time to finish. They're planning to send us all to different places in South Korea (the Dependents), and then send us to different places from there if things get extended (which will probably happen if things stay like this) My prediction is school will be canceled for a while. Everyone is getting separated, half of my friends cried because most likely we won't be seeing each other again. Zama American high will never be the same, half of the people will have moved by then, because of this disaster. As for me, my parents want to stay here until Saturday morning, when we go to Narita Airport and leave. Maybe we won't even end up moving to Yokosuka. Who knows. But for now, I have internet, and I'm just waiting for new news to come. I'll update you guys on this.

Hang in there iAnjo. We are all praying for you. I sat down with my wife and daughter last night and we read the entire thread from the first page all the way to the last. Then we moved on to others. I cant begin to say I understand what you are going through, but I do know that there are millions of us here rooting for you and everyone else in Japan.

Thank you! From the looks of it now, the only bad thing happening is another Nuclear meltdown, and my friends getting separated from other friends and me. I can't believe today was the last day I'll ever see them. Everyone will most likely be sent to other places, and some won't come back. I'm not even sure if I'll end up coming back here for Yokosuka. (For now, that's a good thing) Schools are shut down until further notice, according to their websites because of this.

Evacuation Plan:

Japan to Korea
Stay in Korea 3-5 Days
Most likely Korea to Somewhere in States
Stay in states until Japan is safe

No school for awhile..

If things stay like this, no one will probably end up coming back except those who really want to stay.

OMG i just read this below what the chineze gov is recomending the population right now


Update 12:30 In China reported "panic buys salt", salt supplies to be stocked by consumers. It is possible an unintended consequence of reports in Chinese state media that people "will not have to worry about the salt stock" and the idea that ordinary table salt enough protection against the harmful effects of radiation. Denies.


Why OMG?
Yesterday a nuclear physicist said that salt was perfect to measures radiation. Because the protons will bind to the salt

In my mind this translates. China knows radiation cloud is coming, chance to depopulate gentle. give advice to eat salt for protection against radiation, while the salt has the opposite effect. You become proton/neutron etc magnet.


Yesterday we had an Dutch talk show were an Journalist returned from Japan He said Japan is lying He came back with radio poisoning which was not detected by those things we all saw in the video's across the net. He was station 150km North of Fukash... Nuclear physicist said, If you want to measure radio activity correctly. Take salt samples of home''s around the plants. The protons will stick to the salt making them ideal for radiation testing


Choose diederik samson part (skip to 7:25min)Its in Dutch 3th fragment

If this is true, then this is madness. What can we do???

Our thoughts and prayers are with our brother and sisters in Japan. Follow your intuition. Don't trust the government. Don't trust the Corporations..they are pathological liers. Love & Peace

Good Luck iAnjo!!!

I hate that you and your friends are separated so quickly! But with the internet I'm sure you all can stay in touch! I have a friend in his late 30's that also went to school in Japan on an American base. He is still friends with many from those days. Things will work out. For now stay safe!

Hope your way!
OiO

I think you are being very brave and mature about this, i find this thread incredible.

Good luck and keep safe ..

Thanks guys


A change of plans:

Instead of stopping by Korea, it's going straight for the states.

Either LA or Seattle. Anywhere but those two are out-of-pocket expense.

Flights are going tonight and tomorrow morning

Apparently we might take the evacuation, we're not sure yet :/

Gross CPM = gross counts per minute of alpha and beta radioactive interactions as it moves through the tube of the Gieger Counter. The Gieiger counter can not detect exactly what radio active material is present, only how many ion interactions occur. Here is a site with some basic information:
