You have a valid reason for this? I initially closed the VERY FIRST news thread about the quake and immediately got several PMs politely asking that it be re-opened. I re-evaluated everything and complied, and this will also be left open as the result of this incident can determine the future of nuclear power in developed nations worldwide. I know there's a LOT of incomplete information, but that's why updates and new valid information are being posted hourly if not faster. This however does NOT mean you can spread what has already been proven to be false information, that's detrimental to the discussion.

TEPCO Press Release on Status of Facilities

Quote:
Press Release (Mar 13,2011)
Impact to TEPCO's Facilities due to Miyagiken-Oki Earthquake (as of 8AM)

Below is major impact to TEPCO's facilities due to the Miyagiken-Oki
Earthquake that occurred yesterday at 2:46PM.
*new items are underlined

[Nuclear Power Station]
Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station:
Units 1 to 3: shutdown due to earthquake
Units 4 to 6: outage due to regular inspection
* The national government has instructed evacuation for those local
residents within 20km radius of the site periphery.
* The value of radioactive material (iodine, etc) is increasing according
to the monitoring car at the site (outside of the site). One of the
monitoring posts is also indicating higher than normal level.
* Since the amount of radiation at the boundary of the site exceeds the
limits, we decide at 4:17PM, Mar 12 and we have reported and/or noticed
the government agencies concerned to apply the clause 1 of the Article 15
of the Radiation Disaster Measure at 5PM, Mar 12.
* In addition, a vertical earthquake hit the site and big explosion has
happened near the Unit 1 and smoke breaks out around 3:36PM, Mar 12th.
* We started injection of sea water into the reactor core of Unit 1 at
8:20PM, Mar 12 and then boric acid subsequently.
* High Pressure Coolant Injection System of Unit 3 automatically stopped.
We endeavored to restart the Reactor Core Isolation Cooling System but
failed. Also, we could not confirm the water inflow of Emergency Core
Cooling System. As such, we decided at 5.10AM, Mar 12, and we reported
and/or noticed the government agencies concerned to apply the clause 1 of
the Article 15 of the Radiation Disaster Measure at 5:58AM, Mar 13.
In order to fully secure safety, we operated the vent valve to reduce the
pressure of the reactor containment vessels (partial release of air
containing radioactive materials) and completed the procedure at 8:41AM,
Mar 13,
* We continue endeavoring to secure the safety that all we can do and
monitoring the periphery.

Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Station:
Units 1 to 4: shutdown due to earthquake
* The national government has instructed evacuation for those local
residents within 10km radius of the periphery.
* At present, we have decided to prepare implementing measures to reduce
the pressure of the reactor containment vessel (partial discharge of air
containing radioactive materials) in order to fully secure safety.
These measures are considered to be implemented in Units 1, 2 and 3 and
accordingly, we have reported and/or noticed the government agencies
concerned.
* Unit 3 has been stopped and being "nuclear reactor cooling hot stop" at
12:15PM.
* The operator trapped in the crane operating console of the exhaust stack
was transferred to the ground at 5:13PM and confirmed the death at 5:17PM.

A lot of us have been working hard to dispel any bad information and use this as a central point for news to be collected and dispersed. Much easier than each of us trying to follow dozens of different sources.

Except for the fact that the map indicates a level of radiation that Chernobyl wouldn't have even been able to produce in even the worst case scenario. The entire West Coast is supposed to get 750 Rems? Yeah that's only lethal dose for more than 70% of those exposed. Completely impossible.

Yeah I only noticed the irony in my avatar about two hours ago. I'm glad someone else saw it too.

Thanks for the media praise. I try to get multiple sources and make sure it's probable before I post up new information so that OCN stays informed on this.

It's not a matter of which way surface winds are blowing at any given moment. The winds always blow toward the east from Japan. Once the plume reaches the upper atmosphere it will spread east. This could be very bad for Japan, whose own citizens will get the first blast.
post #520 of 2836
i am not sure if this has been posted before, every second someone is posting in this thread, hard to keep up.

Quote:
A partial meltdown is likely under way at second quake-stricken nuclear reactor, Japan's top government spokesman said Sunday.

Fuel rods were briefly exposed and radiation levels briefly rose above the legal limit at the nuclear plant where both reactors are located, said Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano.

His statement came after Japan's largest electric utility started releasing steam Sunday at the second nuclear reactor while trying to stop a meltdown that began a day earlier in another.

Tokyo Electric Co., or TEPCO, was pouring seawater and boron into its Fukushima Daiichi power plant Unit 1 reactor, whose core partially melted, when it started releasing steam at troubled nuclear reactor container vessel, Unit 3.

Critical cooling systems failed at both reactors and others.
Released steam raised radiation levels above safety limits outside the reactor, TEPCO officials said, adding they informed the government of an "emergency situation." Still, they said, there was no immediate threat to human health.
