URGENT: Radiation 1,000 times higher than normal detected at nuke plant
TOKYO, March 12, Kyodo

The amount of radiation reached around 1,000 times the normal level Saturday in the control room of the No. 1 reactor of the [expletive]ushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said.

The discovery suggests radioactive steam could spread around the facility operated by Tokyo Electric Power Co.

check this vid.
This guy is on a MAN MADE Island extension in Japan. During the quake cracks in the ground open up and you can actually see the edges of the earth sway back and forth as the quake continues.

CNN, Fox News, whatever you want to watch...keep an eye on what's going on right now, by any means necessary. The reactor meltdown is a huge, huge dilemma, possibly could be worse than the quake and tsunami.

This is BAD. Explosion at the nuclear plant...worse-case scenario is assumed right now. This could be a major catastrophe.

where did you hear that?


I was on the drudge when the first headlines broke, it is a good place to start



http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/03/11/tsunami/index.html


It brought six-foot waves to Maui, where harbors remained closed Friday night, and brought 8.1-foot waves to Crescent City, California, about 15 miles north of where the only known U.S. fatality occurred



i think he's joking

This is clearly not a joking matter


This earthquake is going to be the most famous in history.
More CCTV cameras then any other earthquake.
More Data colection points

And there is still on going situations
Any time a headline reads

'MAY BE EXPERIENCING NUCLEAR MELTDOWN'...
Is a terrorfing prospect.



If you do not have TV, but, want up to the breaking min coverage (as in better then the TV News)

CNN, Fox News, whatever you want to watch....



My take, whatever is not on comercial.
And, of course, 24/7 CPU INTERNET

I understood that it isn't a full scale nuclear disaster. They let some of the steam go in order the reactor doesn't melt down ..

the japanese are well prepared for tsunami's so hopefully they evacuated in time before the waves hit the town.

Quake moved Japan coast 8 feet; shifted Earth's axis

(CNN) -- The powerful earthquake that unleashed a devastating tsunami Friday appears to have moved the main island of Japan by 8 feet (2.4 meters) and shifted the Earth on its axis.

"At this point, we know that one GPS station moved (8 feet), and we have seen a map from GSI (Geospatial Information Authority) in Japan showing the pattern of shift over a large area is consistent with about that much shift of the land mass," said Kenneth Hudnut, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

Reports from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Italy estimated the 8.9-magnitude quake shifted the planet on its axis by nearly 4 inches (10 centimeters).

The time from the earthquake, to when the Tsunami hit could not have been long.

Tsunamis travel at hundreds of miles per hour!
They slow as they approach land, but, this had to travel only 10-20 miles before it hit the coast.


It is wholly possible that the quake had not yet even stopped shaking the earth, when the Tsunami hit.

The Tsunami raced across the Pacific at almost 1000 KM per hour!



Meanwhile, rescuing survivors is almost on hold right now, as a nuclear situation is unfolding...
It is already the 3rd WORST world nuclear accident in Human history, after Cheynoble and Three Mile Island.

[expletive]ushima

The ammount information from this event is going to take decades to take in.

COME ON!!
It is a CITY!



Japan is begging for the US help...
Of course the US will help, that is what we do.

But? Should we?
Japan's Prime Minister is a notorious anti-american, and was elected on an Anti-American platform, and has pushed to remove American Air Bases, and Navel Bases.

Of course, this does not stop them from begging for the US help as soon as they have a problem.

It is just an example, of the mindset of the world, they want to expel the US, and get rid of the US influence, but, the reality is, they cannot sustain themselves without the US.


AND, in an emergency, the US is the only nation that has the resources and willpower to do something about it, and a population that wants to help people.

So, i think the US will continue to help people who need it around the world, reguardless of how they feel.


“There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.”

Imagine if the majority of Japanese got what they want, and that is the US out of their nation...

This is just as wrong as the "prayer" problem.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies accepts donations via text message. Text "redcross" to 90999, and you can make a $10 donation to the organization. It will show up on your next mobile phone bill.


got this from CNN.com

i would imagine its legit, but maybe someone look into it...either way, that takes basically 0 effort, and 10 bucks is nothing

Well, I donated to the Salvation Army. I usually give away my clothes to their organization so I decided to donate to them.
