Japan confirms explosion, leakage at nuke plant (22 October 2012)FUKUSHIMA, Japan (Reuters) Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano confirmed on Saturday there has been an explosion and radiation leakage at Tokyo Electric Power Co’s (TEPCO) (9501.T) Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. “We are looking into the cause and the situation and we’ll make that public when we have further information,” Edano said.”At present, we think 10 km evacuation is appropriate.”Japan earlier in the day warned of a meltdown at a reactor at the plant, damaged when a massive earthquake and tsunami struck the northeast coast, but said the risk of radiation contamination was small. Edano also said that Japan has expanded the evacuation area around the Fukushima Daini nuclear plant. (Reporting by Kiyoshi Takenaka; Editing by Joseph Radford)
And I just received this in another update from Jeff Wefferson
UPDATE: 10/22/12: 13:30pm Monday Japan time: The Oct 18th explosion was due to an earthquake with a 3.9 mag. This quake breached the walls containment system, therefore causing further meltdown of the fuel rods down to their plutonium cores. There is no steam effect when Plutonium hits the air, so do not expect to see any steam like the before materials, its a ‘ vapor ‘ that cannot be seen. – Michael Eckstein
This update is in reference to what was included near the top on the compilation I just sent out:
RED ALERT: FUKUSHIMA SPENT FUEL POOLS EXPLODED, ON FIRE NOW, RADIATION LEVELS SPIKING MASSIVELY (October 22, 2012)Over 30,000 Spent fuel rods are now exposed- REPORTWARNING! This is the worst-case scenario unfolding at Fukushima. According to Michael Eckstein, a researcher who lives only 50 miles from Fukushima, explosions and fires have occurred at spent fuel pools two and four over the past four days and now radiation levels are spiking enormously. THIS IS THE WORST-CASE SCENARIO BECAUSE OF THE THOUSANDS OF TONS OF PLUTONIUM CONTAINED IN THESE SPENT FUEL POOLS. This is now vapourizing into the atmosphere and being disseminated with the winds. Major cloud and radiation spike estimated to hit west coast of USA in two weeks or less. CLIP Read the rest to know more!
LISTEN TO WHAT Arnie Gundersen said in his podcast yesterday – I addition to expressing his great concern for what just happened – which he wasn’t yet aware off – he said MANY nuclear power plants in the US are downstream from major dams which, if they break because of a major earthquake or flood for instance, would fail and release large amount of radioactivity…
This critical issue should be adressed in the presidential debate tonight…
The global media has kept a tight lid so far about this new catastrophe in Japan. Tens of millions of people will need to be evacuated from Japan. This will trigger the global economic collapse of an already fragile economy. North America and Europe will receive many more times lethal plutonium contamination and radioactivity than from Chernobyl. Help break the media cover up on this.
Network this and pray for a miracle…
And very sorry to have to bring this bad news to you…
