What’s Going on at Fukushima?


One site is reporting explosions and fire at Fukushima nuclear plant.   Others are claiming this is a hoax.

We do know that reactor #4 is sinking ——->  http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/10/fukushima-update-unit-4-is-sinking.html

Fukushima: Reactor 4 -Cooling Suspended-


Japan has restarted its other nuclear plants, despite the ongoing emergency at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant that was very badly damaged on March 11, 2011 by the 9.0 earthquake, tsunami, (stuxnet and co.?) and failure of the plants operators to contain the situation 500 days later.

Tepco has stopped the cooling system supplied to the badly damaged Reactor 4 at Fukushima.  They cannot activate a backup cooling system and they are looking into the cause.  On June 25, Tepco removed an upper portion of reactor 4 and it is suspected they damaged the pipes of the cooling system.

Expect an announcement to be made very soon about their plans for the destruction of reactor 4.

If Reactor 4 experiences a complete meltdown then Japan will be over.  Then the northern hemisphere and finally the world.

By July 5, the temperature could reach 100 C.

Meanwhile reactor 1 is releasing  radiation at over 260 times “normal” amounts, due to a leak in the basement.  This is further hampering efforts to slow down the release of the nuclear fuel.

The annual allowed dose for workers at the stricken site is reached in only 20 seconds.

It’s time for Tepco to step aside and take an offer from someone else to clean up this mess as much as possible.  The one thing Tepco has done well is show the world that they are incompetent.  What do you do with radioactive waste?  Nuclear power has no long term benefit for this planet.

Typhoon Guchol Ripping Across Japan Radiation is Spiking


Image

Typhoon Guchol is making its way northeast over the island of Japan at around 50 mph, with winds of 120 mph.  150,000 residents have been ordered to evacuate and the public transportation has been halted from Toyko to  the northern prefectures.

Tepco has not held a press conference or released any information regarding its devastated nuclear power plant.  At this point I assume any information will come from leaks or we will not find out the truth for weeks or months.

If you have a geiger counter, start taking readings today and for the next 40 days (the time it takes the radiation to circle the northern hemisphere) and post your results here and  anywhere you can.

The storm is kicking up radiation as you can see on the charts.  Visit this guys blog:

More bad news as Japan failed to disclose the radiation maps taken by the United States directly after the March 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster.   The maps could have possibly aided in the rescue efforts.   The largest amounts of radiation flew northwest back on top of the island of Japan.   http://www3.nhk.or.jp/daily/english/20120619_23.html

Tropical Storm Talim and Fukushima Japan


Image

Another storm is projected to hit to the island of Japan within 72 hours and possibly the Fukushima area Friday night.  Tropical Storm Talim has formed in the south china sea which is rare at this time of year.  Taiwan is forecasted to receive large amounts of rainfall.  At this time sustained winds are 50 mph and no forecasts for increased winds at this time.

Typhoon Guchol (Butchoy) is just hitting southern Japan.  Fears are still high for the badly damaged nuclear facility Fukushima Daiichi.  Hopefully Talim will pass south of Japan.

Typhoon Guchol (Butchoy) Update 2 Media Blackout


Image

Typhoon Guchol is speeding towards Japan and hitting it within 24 hours.  As of today, the storm has 120 mph winds and would be classified as a category 3 hurricane in the atlantic ocean. The typhoon‘s eye has filled in and it is showing signs of slowing down and weakening.  16 inches of rain are expected in Japan as the typhoon moves northeast.   West of Tokyo, they expect mudslides and flooding.   There is a huge media blackout on the topic of this typhoon and the danger it poses when combined with the nuclear disaster in Fukushima that occured in early 2011.  A couple of days ago when I wrote my other post on this issue, as I researched the internet, links that I had visited minutes before were disappearing.  I checked my history and some of them still worked, but were not being indexed by Google.

The next 36 hours are critical! The forecast says that the typhoon will pass far west of Fukushima.  You can watch the wind change direction as the typhoon moves across Japan. (This also shows the danger zone Fukushima).  Note how the winds blow east over Japan then how the jetstream takes the air right over the radioactivity westward.  http://www.kachelmannwetter.de/japan/japan.html

Super Typhoon Guchol (Butchoy) Update 1


Image

Butchoy has now become the season’s first “super typhoon” or that equal to a category 5 hurricane.  It is expected to miss the philippines, but officials warned of a storm surge.

As Butchoy advances north, it may hit Okinawa Japan the evening of June 17.  It is expected to be a category 1 storm by the time it reaches Tokyo and Fukushima prefecture, where it is expected to make landfall.  While the downgrade in strength of the storm is good, it also means that Butchoy will be moving slower, dropping large amounts of water at the damaged reactors.  Typhoon Butchoy (Guchol) could hammer the eastern seaboard until Thursday June 22.
