[Various] Japan Nuclear Emergency - Continuous Coverage of Damage and Radiation Risks - Page 41  

post #401 of 2836
Just something I thought about, since they are using sea water to try and cool down the reactors, what happens if small pieces of debris come in contact? Surely they are using filters etc, but what about very small particles?

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

The core partially melted, i don't know why anyone watches CNN, they are all idiots.

Quote:
The core of a nuclear reactor damaged by Friday’s massive earthquake has partially melted, Japan’s nuclear safety agency said Saturday, and the company that runs the plant is pouring seawater into the reactor in an attempt to cool it and prevent it from going critical.

Early Sunday, Japan's nuclear safety agency reported an emergency at a second reactor in the same complex.

The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said that the cooling system malfunctioned at Unit 3 of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant No. 1. The agency said it was informed of the emergency by Tokyo Electric Co., or TEPCO, the utility that runs the plant.

No further details of the troubles at Unit 3 were immediately available.

From what I saw on CNN (which I RARELY watch), it's very slow paced, and they beat around the bush too much!

Tell us the damn facts!

Noting at all, it's far too far to receive any substantial radiation if any.
Anyway there's an official from the Japanese government giving a press conference right now on NHK World (not sure if it's live as it says recorded inthe right corner).

Apparently CNN is broadcasting the feed from NHK too, does it usually happen ?

Nothing, we are fine. Just as long as the Seabrook powerplant never ever fails. I'm like only 12 miles away from it, and I would be completely screwed if it ever failed.

If anyone has a free to air satellite there is basically an entire japanese (english) channel dedicated to this. On AMC 9/3C at 83W.

More footage than you'll ever get from BBC and CNN.

They can only tell the facts when they get them. Do you really think there letting CNN reporters into the unstable reactor to get readings? When you see a giant mushroom cloud you will know if it melted.

"going critical" simply means the (normal) nuclear process is underway. when the rods are inserted into the fuel the reaction begins and babies are born that way..
