Also on the same link is new footage of the tsunami hitting a coastal town.

*sigh* I wish Ant Video Downloader could download that.. I can't stream it. Being on satellite internet (read: extremely slow) makes videos like that extremely buggy. Pausing it, to let it load, doesn't seem to help at all.

It's amazing to see how much activity they have gone through over there.

Quote:
A German geophysicist also created this nifty graphic that shows the seismic activity off the coast of Japan since March 9, the day a 7.2 quake occurred off the coast of Japan. The morning of March 11 shows the massive quake and its aftershocks, and then the seismic activity slowly subsides. But all in all, the region has suffered 428 earthquakes since March 9, even though many were too far or too small to be felt on land.

Good thing they were able to jump-start a working pump to cool a reactor. Hope they will do the same to the others, especially Reactor #4.

So, any updates? Do they have this under control yet, now that power is partly restored? And does California have anything to worry about now?

The latest update is this:

The owner of the stricken nuclear power complex in northeastern Japan said Saturday that it will hike the radiation exposure limit for its workers at the plant from 100 millisieverts per shift to 150 millisieverts, Japan's public broadcaster NHK reported.

The limit for radiation workers in the United States is 50 millisieverts per year, but we try to keep them to less than 5 millisieverts per year."

1. Engineers are expected to connect a new power line to four quake-damaged reactors at the Fukushima nuclear plant by the end of the day. Firefighters have continued to spray water in a desperate attempt to avert a meltdown.
[10:38 p.m. ET Friday, 11:38 a.m. Saturday in Tokyo] Workers have finished laying electrical cable near the Fukushima Daiichi power plant's No. 2 nuclear reactor, the Tokyo Electric Power Company says.
2. Japan raised the accident level at the damaged Fukushima nuclear plant from four to five on a seven-point international danger scale for atomic accidents.
3. The confirmed death toll from the disaster has risen to 7,197 and 10,905 people are listed as missing.
4. The Japanese government is asking local authorities further away from the disaster zone to prepare to receive survivors from the worst-affected areas. Nearly 400,000 people are living in temporary evacuation centres.

They have revealed that all the troubled reactors have plutonium in them.

Any other source other than Fox News? Sorry, but I just don't trust them. Especially since they're the ones that were claiming Vancouver, BC was preparing for a massive nuclear fallout.

I gave you the timeline from BBC. If you Can't you trust BBC, who can you trust.

People complain and rip me apart when I don't help, then when I do they don't believe it. It's a no win situation.

NEWS ADVISORY: Putting water into No. 3 reactor successful to some extent: Edano (16:14)
NEWS ADVISORY: Nuclear crisis abating step by step: Edano (16:12)
NEWS ADVISORY: Temperature at 100 C or lower at Fukushima 1-4 reactors: defense chief (15:51)

^Kyodo

Now let's just hope all the reactors have at least some of the pumps in operational condition.

Do you have a more reliable source?

NEWS ADVISORY: Putting water into No. 3 reactor successful to some extent: Edano (16:14)
NEWS ADVISORY: Nuclear crisis abating step by step: Edano (16:12)
NEWS ADVISORY: Temperature at 100 C or lower at Fukushima 1-4 reactors: defense chief (15:51)

I have a hard time believing this

the latest BBC update is :
#0721: Mr Edano said emergency workers at the plant were still working on the restoration of power to the plant.

If the power hasn't been restored, how are they able to cool the reactors to below 100C on ALL FOUR reactors?
