Right but non of us or the Japan Society knows anything right now. For all we know they have no control over it & its about to meltdown or has already started. The video I posted above says people should clear back to about 20 miles if this thing goes.
Im praying that Japan does finaly get control over it if they dont already. only time will tell. I also read that Japan is not out of danger yet since Aftershocks can still happen for a couple of days after. its a crappy situation either way if it meltsdown or not. Lives lost, homes, Possible Meltdown causing diseases & deaths you name it it sucks
