Tokyo Electric Power Company has detected extremely high levels of radiation inside one of the crippled reactors of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.


enenews.com...




TEPCO suspects the suppression chamber at the bottom of the vessel may have been destroyed.


I suppose we all saw this coming, it was merely a matter of time before the real severity of the situation came to light. I think the damage has been done, let's hope it doesn't get any worse.

The only thing I can say - now what?
Will they evacuate Fukushima? I
didn't see that in the reports. What
a nightmare.

My question is... WHY would anyone want to live there knowing what is going on and will go on.

I just don't get it! lol

I think it is Apathy, and a bit of being kept in the dark
by TPTB. These people have little or no chance unless the TPTB come clean and move them somewhere safe!!!

At least the Russians did this after it was realised just how bad Chernobyl really was?

Hmm... I'm extremely dubious about both of the sources. Until I see such reports on credible websites I won't be worrying. I've seen many scare stories from sites like those referenced almost daily since the earthquake.

Howdy.

The suppression chamber?

Hmm. That is clearly a code word for where all this Japanese news is leaking from?

ETA; best edited out eh?

If things get worse there I could easily imagine that China will accept the ensuing Japanese exodus. They do have plenty of ghost cities waiting for habitation, after all.

Not trying to derail but some pertinent points and links are also in a similar (not the same) thread also. Particularly there is a link to a newspaper article with a photo of one of these hotbeds and it looks very active to me. Check it out (short thread) if you have time.

The photo I'm talking about is in this guardian article that was posted on the thread above. It looks all kinda scary to me but then I am not a nuclear reactor expert.

Water level inside is only 2 feet deep now.

If you think thats scary,you should read this mega thread thats been going since day 1,all 1237 pages of it.

Thank you for sharing those helpful links. I saw the video (which is in one of the articles I posted), and it seemed very disturbing.

There is some really bad blood between the Japanese and the Chinese (yes still). It would be a really big step in character for the Chinese govt to let them stay.

Damn! I just saw that video on the link kdog posted. They said water temps are only 50 degrees C but to my untrained eye it looks like something is either smoking or boiling in there.

As for people, no one would survive. Apparently they are using an endoscope to film it.

Thanks for the megathread kdog.

This is the type of BS that HIGHlights US foreign policy...

How quick are we to violate another nations sovereignty for "human rights" violations (cough Libya) yet here we have a Government lying to its people with the future cost being MILLIONS of lifes, not thousands, not hundreds of thousands but MILLIONS and maybe even Hundred of Millions...

Lets get an international team rolling in there to fix this crap, Get the Russians over there, they know how to deal with this...

Fairwinds.com has a report that says soil in Tokyo would be nuclear waste in the US.

SO again we only care about human rights when its apparently sitting on a S-load of oil...

For crying out loud Communist Russia treated their people better during Chernobyl

The monster thread is the most concise compilation of the ongoing disaster in Japan. I posted in that thread for hundreds of pages, until I had to take a mental health break from it. I still read daily. Some of the best, and most dedicated researchers on ATS are the backbone of that thread. God/Goddess Bless them all....

I wonder if that was just smart forward thinking or did the Chinese have advance information as long as a few years ago that Fukushima was going to get pooched. Makes you wonder.....

From what i'm seeing, it looks to me that what everyone thinks to be boiling water is nothing but the currents from the high volume of water being pumped into the reactor core. At around 5 1/2 Minutes you can see water droplets falling from the probe, leading me to believe the probe is not submerged at that point. which seems to fit the fact the water level is 10 Meters lower than they had predicted. The orange glob seen on the video does look molten, hard telling if its rust and light effects from the probe, or our worst fears. If its molten corium the temperate #s don't seem to match up with the state of the reactor "Cold Shutdown" Status.

If this is true, the only thing keeping that reactor from going further into meltdown is the high volume flow of water. This reactor is still in a dire situation if evidence shows correct. They would be far from cold shutdown. That being said, Lets hope they can keep the water flowing, and pray for no more serious quakes in that local area.

Lets hope there is no further emergencies.

Let's hope it doesn't get any worse?? They're talking about the outer containment vessel!!! It CAN'T get any worse than this!! The rods breached the inner containment months ago, the outer containment has been the last line of hope of containing the danger since then. If the outer containment is breached then it's game over, you've got raw radioactive material going straight into the environment. If true, this is the "worst nightmare scenario" everyone has been worrying about.

Is this not already a worse case scenario?
If not, then how much worse could it get?
Why have they said nothing about evacuations?
I know, a lot of questions. I feel so bad for the
people in the middle of this disaster. They
are probably being told less than we are.

It becomes worse when a suspicion becomes a confirmation.

The sad thing is, during the Chernobyl debacle, Russia only informed the rest of the world after French authorities confronted them on the matter.
