    Magnitude 9.1 - NEAR THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN - March 11, 2011 201181682547842784_20

    Scientists and doctors are calling for a new national policy in Japan that mandates the testing of food, soil, water, and the air for radioactivity still being emitted from Fukushima's heavily damaged Daiichi nuclear power plant.

    #FUKUSHIMA I NUKE PLANT: 100,000 TONNES OF HIGHLY CONTAMINATED WATER,
    MAY LEAK BY JUNE 15TH

    http://ex-skf.blogspot.com/2011/06/fukushima-i-nuke-plant-100000-tonnes-of.html
    FRIDAY, JUNE 3, 2011 - 720,000 Terabecquerels of Radioactive Materials in 100,000 Tonnes of Contaminated Water When I posted the news about 100,000 tonnes of highly contaminated water at Fukushima I Nuke Plant, I forgot to mention this. (You can read about it in the Businessweek article here.)

    That water is estimated to contain 720,000 terabecquerels of radioactive iodine and cesium.

    That's another "Level 7" right there.

    That's more than what has been released into the atmosphere, which the Nuclear Safety Commission estimates to be about 630,000 terabecquerels and Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency estimates to be about 370,000 terabecquerels.

    I personally think this air radiation numbers underestimate the true numbers, particularly the number from NISA. At that time (mid April), NISA said they calculated the number based on the amount of radioactive materials they estimated to be still inside the RPV. At that time, NISA assured everyone that the fuel rods were only partially damaged and they were all inside the Reactor Pressure Vessels. Now we know (and they should have known) that the RPVs were breached very early in the accident, and the melted core had at least partially escaped out of the RPV by the time they made the estimate.

    Now, Fukushima is slowly approaching Chernobyl.

    Radiation-contaminated area spans 800 square km, new map shows
    2011/05/12 - The total area contaminated with radiation from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant is estimated at about 800 square kilometers, or about 40 percent the size of Tokyo, according to a radiation map created by the science ministry and U.S. Department of Energy.

    The report uses the same level of contamination (555,000 becquerels or higher of cesium-137) that was used to issue compulsory evacuation orders in the Chernobyl nuclear accident in 1986. To determine whether the current evacuation zone is appropriate or when residents can return home, the Nuclear Safety Commission of Japan plans to set up focal sites to heighten its monitoring of the possible further spread of radioactive contamination.

    The report's radiation levels were determined in April by measuring, from about 150-700 meters above ground, levels of accumulated radiation on the ground. The areas measured were divided into 1- to 2-square-kilometer zones.

    According to the map, about 800 square kilometers are contaminated with accumulated cesium-137 of 600,000 becquerels or higher per square meter. The substance has a half-life of about 30 years.

    This area is largely the same as the Fukushima no-entry zone and planned evacuation zone designated by the central government. The total area is about one-tenth the size of the contaminated area in the Chernobyl nuclear accident.

    The nuclear safety committee will pin down sites where constant monitoring is needed by the combined use of this radiation map and measurements taken on the ground. Using data collected from monitoring, the committee plans to prepare the way for residents to return home to normal life after the crisis at the plant is brought under control.

    About 370,000 to 630,000 terabecquerels of radioactive substances are estimated to have been released by the crippled plant, according to a report by the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency and the Nuclear Safety Commission of Japan.

    This radiation amount equals about one-tenth the amount released from the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, whose nuclear reactor was destroyed.

    From April 1 through 6, highly radioactive water of 520 tons was discharged from the plant, while radiation of 4,700 terabecquerels was leaked, according to Tokyo Electric Power Co., raising concerns over severe environmental pollution.

    Currently, cesium and iodine are still being detected 40 km offshore of the plant. Levels of cesium higher than the safety standard have been found in bamboo shoots, shiitake mushrooms and mountain vegetables. (This article was written by Hisae Sato and Fumikazu Asai.)

    Magnitude 7.2 - NEAR THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN
    2011 March 09 02 UTC
    TOKYO (AP) - A magnitude 7.2 earthquake hit northeastern Japan on Wednesday, shaking buildings hundreds of miles away in Tokyo and prompting the country's meteorological agency to issue a tsunami warning for the coast. There were no immediate reports of significant damage or injuries.

    Japanese officials said they were still assessing the situation and telling residents along the coast to stay away from the shore.

    The meteorological agency said the quake hit at 11:45 a.m. local time Wednesday and was centered about 90 miles (150 kilometers) off the northeastern coast — about 270 miles (440 kilometers) northeast of Tokyo — at a depth of about 6.2 miles (10 kilometers).

    A 24-inch (60-centimeter) tsunami reached the coastal town of Ofunato, in Iwate prefecture, shortly after noon. The meteorological agency warned that a tsunami of about 20 inches (50 centimeters) would hit the coast.

    The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii said a Pacific-wide tsunami was not expected.

    "We have confirmed that small tsunami have come up on the shores, but we have no reports of damage at this point," said Shinobu Nagano, an emergency and disaster response official in Iwate prefecture. "We are still trying to determine the impact of the quake."

    Some train lines in the area were temporarily stopped after the quake, but they were restarted shortly after noon.

    There was a 6.3 magnitude aftershock shortly after the main quake, the meteorological agency said.

    The U.S. Geological Survey said the 7.2-magnitude quake struck 8.8 miles (14.1 kilometers) underground, some 104 miles (168 kilometers) east of the closest major city of Sendai. The two agencies often have slightly different numbers.

    Japan lies on the "Ring of Fire" — an arc of earthquake and volcanic zones that stretches around the Pacific Rim and where about 90 percent of the world's quakes occur.

    Lucky it was out to sea a bit and relatively deep underground. But I guess this could be just the beginning. Crying or Very sad

    I also followed the link at the bottom of that page and found this, which is a bit of a worry...

    The following Internet report has been widely circulated by many credible sources, a fact which can easily be verified by search engine.

    ///// A guy who monitors the NOAA (National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration) national data buoy center says the data shows that the sea floor is rising by as much as 13 feet A DAY in the Coral Sea. Since the great tsunami of 2004 a chain of buoys has been tethered in various parts of the ocean to help act as a tsunami warning system. They tell scientists what's going on in terms of how high the ocean surface is above the sea floor. And it seems they have been feeding back some unexpected information.

    As he says: "The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has a Tsunami station in event mode activated for Station 55023 – STB Coral Sea located at 14.803 S 153.585 E (14°48’9″ S 153°35’6″ E).

    "The tsunami station has been in event mode since the large quakes occurred in the area for several days now. This is triggered by the buoys’ anomalies of water column height above the sea floor. If you do a data search for 2010 March 20th to 2010 April 13th you get this: Over 100 meters or 328 feet less distance from buoy to sea floor in 24 days!

    That’s 13 feet per day since the quakes. "This is disturbing." If his analysis is accurate, it is disturbing indeed. But if you go to the NOAA site, you'll find those buoys have not been recording any data lately. Suspicious, that. Are we being kept in the dark yet again? Quite likely. \\\\

    March 10, 2011 – JAPAN – The turbulence in the Pacific Ring of Fire continues today with a 6.1, a 6.0, and another 6.1 magnitude earthquake near the East coast of Honshu, Japan. That was followed by a 6.5 magnitude quake in the New Britain Region of Papua New Guinea. We now deem the planet unstable during this volatile seismic window due to the frantic magnitude of the seismic waves agitating plates across the globe. The stress has become too erratic and dynamic to adequately measure as the telemetry data on all the global seismographs are collectively showing some of the darkest bands of seismic disturbances we have seen. The hope is that we can pass through this period without this phenomenon diffusing beyond the Pacific Ring of Fire

    From someone in Japan: This is one of the worst earthquakes ever and I've felt plenty. I'm on the 30th floor, the building is still rocking and rolling. I could see the buildings in the Tokyo skyline shaking. Thee is black smoke belching from a huge skyscraper south of here. Looks near to Tokyo bay but I can't make out what building. Actuaually there is lots of black smoke on the horizon. Looks like more than one big fire but I don't want to jump to conclusions. They are evacuating this bldg now

    Major tsunami damage in N Japan after 8.9 quake
    TOKYO – Japan was struck by a magnitude 8.9 earthquake off its northeastern coast Friday, unleashing a 13-foot (4-meter) tsunami that washed away cars and tore away buildings along the coast near the epicenter. There were reports of injuries in Tokyo.

    In various locations along Japan's coast, TV footage showed massive damage from the tsunami, with dozens of cars, boats and even buildings being carried along by waters. A large ship swept away by the tsunami rammed directly into a breakwater in Kesennuma city in Miyagi prefecture, according to footage on public broadcaster NHK.

    Officials were trying to assess damage, injuries and deaths from the quake but had no immediate details.
    The quake that struck at 2:46 p.m. was followed by a series of powerful aftershocks, including a 7.4-magnitude one about 30 minutes later. The U.S. Geological Survey upgraded the strength of the first quake to a magnitude 8.9, while Japan's meteorological agency measured it at 7.9.
    The meteorological agency issued a tsunami warning for the entire Pacific coast of Japan. NHK was warning those near the coast to get to safer ground.
    The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii said a tsunami warning was in effect for Japan, Russia, Marcus Island and the Northern Marianas. A tsunami watch has been issued for Guam, Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia and the U.S. state of Hawaii.
    The quake struck at a depth of six miles (10 kilometers), about 80 miles (125 kilometers) off the eastern coast, the agency said. The area is 240 miles (380 kilometers) northeast of Tokyo.

    In downtown Tokyo, large buildings shook violently and workers poured into the street for safety. TV footage showed a large building on fire and bellowing smoke in the Odaiba district of Tokyo.

    In central Tokyo, trains were stopped and passengers walked along the tracks to platforms.
    The ceiling in Kudan Kaikan, a large hall in Tokyo, collapsed, injuring an unknown number of people, NHK said.

    Footage on NHK from their Sendai office showed employees stumbling around and books and papers crashing from desks. It also showed a glass shelter at a bus stop in Tokyo completely smashed by the quake and a weeping woman nearby being comforted by another woman.

    Several quakes had hit the same region in recent days, including a 7.3 magnitude one on Wednesday.
    Thirty minutes after the quake, tall buildings were still swaying in Tokyo and mobile phone networks were not working. Japan's Coast Guard has set up task force and officials are standing by for emergency contingencies, Coast Guard official Yosuke Oi said.

    "I'm afraid we'll soon find out about damages, since the quake was so strong," he said

    Magnitude 9.1 - NEAR THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN - March 11, 2011 Dst11031116150040-p1
    A 33ft wave has hit the port in the country's Sendai city, sending ships crashing into the shore and carrying cars and buildings through the streets of coastal towns.

    Deaths have been reported following the earthquake, which has obliterated Tokyo's Disneyland car park and caused large fires at sites including an oil refinery in nearby Iichihara.

    Large aftershocks continue to hit the capital, following an initial tremor so strong it was felt 1,500 miles away in the Chinese capital of Beijing.

    Airports in the region have been closed and the Shinkansen 'bullet' train stopped.

    Tokyo's fire department reported several people were injured when a roof caved in at a graduation ceremony in the city.

    The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii has put in place a tsunami warning for the entire Pacific, including Guam, Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Hawaii, Australia and South America.

    Russia, Marcus Island and the Northern Marianas have also been put on alert.

    Waves from the quake are expected to hit the coast of Taiwan at around 9.30am GMT.
    In downtown Tokyo, large buildings shook violently and workers poured into the street for safety.

    TV footage showed a large building on fire and bellowing smoke in the Odaiba district of the city.

    Police and coast guard officials said they were assessing possible damage from the quake.

    Other areas around the globe that are unstable may also be at risk for quakes

    Magnitude 9.1 - NEAR THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN - March 11, 2011 _51632880_japan_quake_03112
    5TH LARGEST QUAKE RECORDED SINCE 1900
    A massive earthquake has hit the north-east of Japan, triggering a tsunami that has caused extensive damage.

    Japanese television showed cars, ships and even buildings being swept away by a vast wall of water after the 8.9 magnitude earthquake.

    The quake has sparked fires in several areas including Tokyo, and numerous casualties are feared.

    It struck about 250 miles (400km) from the capital at a depth of 20 miles. There have been powerful aftershocks.

    The tremor at 1446 local time (0546 GMT). Seismologists say it is one of the largest earthquakes to hit Japan for many years.

    The tsunami warning was extended to the Philippines, Indonesia, Taiwan, the Pacific coast of Russia and Hawaii.

    Tsunami waves hit Japan's Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures, officials said.

    Japan's NHK television showed a massive surge of debris-filled water sweeping away buildings, cars and ships and reaching far inland.

    The earthquake also triggered a number of fires, including one at an oil refinery in Ichihara city in Chiba prefecture near Tokyo, engulfing storage tanks.

    There were reports of about 20 people injured in Tokyo after the roof of a hall collapsed onto a graduation ceremony.

    Bullet train service to northern Japan was halted, rapid transit in Tokyo was suspended and some nuclear power plants automatically shut down.

    Prime Minister Naoto Kan said there had been no radiation leaks.

    In a televised address, he extended his sympathy to the victims of the disaster and said an emergency response headquarters had been set up.

    Hawaii ~ They are telling us not to use our cell phone and to go to higher ground if closer than 1/2 mile to ocean. Kauai sirens going off right now.

    Tsunami watch issued for Hawaii
    The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii says the watch was in effect at 7:56 p.m. HST Thursday.


    HONOLULU — The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii has widened its tsunami warning to include Hawaii and the rest of the Pacific Ocean.

    Sirens were sounded in Honolulu shortly after the warning was issued Thursday at 9:31 HST p.m.

    The warning follows a massive earthquake that has struck off the northeastern coast of Japan. It says the estimated earliest arrival in Hawaii of the first tsunami wave is 2:59 a.m. HST Friday.

    The warning also includes Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and Central and South America. The coast of North America is not included in the warning.

    Tsunami warnings are issued due to the imminent threat of a tsunami.

    Okay... I've been up since 2 am today waiting for something to happen (sensed something was up) and should have been in bed hours ago. However, I need some of you to take over for me and keep posting as our Japan members need us to give them information as their information systems are down. We have about 4 or 5 people from there who are here daily monitoring us and some are also members. So please help and post data that helps them know what is going on as I already know they are checking in. Meanwhile we hope the tsunami that is rolling in now in the island farthest out will be okay because this could damage our airports and harbors. I knew I should have made an extra Costco trip for more chocolate.

    In addition other members on the Coast will be checking in and our group from Europe are here now. This is major because it could trigger the Madrid fault, Oregon, California... and other areas. Keep praying for protection of those in the middle of they quake zones. Mahalo nui loa, carol

    Good Morning Carol. Yes its a warning shot across the bow. Just look how much damage a ten metere high tsunami can do. When they are of much larger then...

    Ive heard the waves reach your joint in about 7 hours from now so hopefully it will have significantly lessened. As it stands the beb say its higher than some pacofic islands.

    Ive heard some have left for high groung where you are.

    Well Floyd I'll hand the reigns over to you luv. I'm bushed and plan on sleeping through the next few quakes and whatever eruptions that go off luckily on the other side of the island. High ground is the way to go.

    Ta ta for now.
