Radioactive clouds have been detected over the pacific near Japan. The radioactive clouds are just now reaching deadly levels, they are starting to move towards the Pacific, leaving them roughly 500 miles from the west coast of the United States. The aftershocks have caused massive failures at these two plants and the meltdown has begun. All around the world the radioactive modeling systems, usually used to predict nuclear fallout from nuclear weapons, have been turned towards helping to predict the next country that will have to start evacuations. Depending on where the cloud goes, large scale evacuations could start in a matter of hours for close neighbors to Japan and in the coming days for people like you and me. We have heard that California EMA has requested immediate evaluations of contingency plans surrounding the radioactive clouds but this is only reported, not confirmed. No California evacuation plan has been set into action.Any significant radiation cloud heading toward the USA would be tracked and would probably trigger more localized ervacuations.
Experts are trying to downplay the radiation leak as a “ground level” leak although radiation has been detected in the higher altitudes, down wind, by spotter planes. Radiation sickness is being treated in the surrounding areas. The Japanese government is running a cartoon explaining to Japanese residents what symptoms to expect with radiation sickness. Up to 160 people, including 60 elderly patients and medical staff who had been waiting for evacuation in the nearby town of Futabe, and 100 others evacuating by bus, might have been exposed to radiation, said Ryo Miyake, a spokesman from Japan’s nuclear agency. The severity of their exposure, or if it had reached dangerous levels, was not clear. They were being taken to hospitals but it further confirms that the invisible clouds have begun to take shape downwind fromt he plants.
The two main sites that I am concerned about are (you should be too, we share this world):
The Tokyo Electric Power Co’s (TEPCO) nuclear plant
Six reactors at the two Fukushima nuclear power plants (seawater pumping operations have been halted due to aftershocks, meltdown underway, radioactivity levels rising)
As for what to do…. The next 24 hrs and the weatherman have become everyone’s best friend…. As for the things that are going on in the background, find someone that knows, the USA’s government is very slow to react to anything (at least publicly) and you must be proactive in a global crisis such as this. The food you eat comes from somewhere else, the stuff you drink has water from somewhere…The air you breath, well you get the point. Basically, I am saying that you need to be very aware that someone is going to say “it is no big deal, it happened over 500+ miles away… for me that is a 6 hr drive or a two-three hour flight and you can’t SEE radiation and thus don’t know when to hide from it. If the dose is great enough, radiation sickness will start quicker the higher the dose and if it is only a low dose, cancer will show up years later
In another weird event, a trusted resource asked me this…
If you have a fire at your house but aren’t able to get to it because of another fire next door, How do you think Japan is going to save all the rest of the reactors at Fukushima plant when they can’t get near it. Yea, it is that bad
My prayers go out to all affected so far from the earthquakes and radiation :/
Officials in Japan are starting to publicly admit that they have no idea how large the initial radioactive rich ventings were as no measurement devices were active in the near region, only on site. They continue to vent without updating the world under the premise that the radioactivity going out over the pacific will dissapate before it reaches the USA and other countries. Other explosions continue to occur and the reporters on the ground are admiting that they are concerned for their safety as the lies continue.
UPDATE 3: Japan is asking the world for assistance in cooling all of the reactors in critical situations. A new explosion at one of the reactors prompted wider evacuations and an immediate “shelter in place” order for residents too close to get out of the way of the radiation cloud that was released. Officials are speculating on amount of radiation released but reading at the plant suggest it was massive. These secondary explosions are crippling the remaining staff’s ability to cool the rods. Top officials in Japan have warned of more releases in the near future.
