I did not know that Japan has earth quakes all the time but this one was much bigger. The world isn't upside down we just try to build in areas where its just a matter of time before these things happen. Where I live we fight the ocean but we know its just a matter of time before mother nature wins and kicks our ass. In Ca. we know there will be another large Quake but we keep building. In FL. we know Hurricanes will hit but we keep building.

Damn. This is a different plant then the earlier warning and is one of Japan's older ones.

Hopefully, it can be contained.

I imagine an plant explosion today would sadly make the Chernobyl disaster look small. Hard to imagine, but I imagine the people in Japan are already fearing the same kind of situation.

I know that Japan reps have said there is no leak, etc, blah blah blah.

But remember, it was not until almost 48 hours after Chernobyl exploded that people were evacuated, and even then they were told that they would only be gone from the city for about a week.

The government did not admit to the scale of the disaster/problem until 2 days later when nuclear plants in DIFFERENT COUNTRIES began to detect the spreading plume of radition. Only at that point did they fully admit to the disaster. God be with the people in Japan right now....The world cannot take another "Chernobyl"
No comparison between Soviet era gov't and Japan. The Japanese gov't wont wait like so many Soviet officials did (being afraid to tell superiors about the true nature of the problems). Also Nuclear power plants today have more fail-safes. Hard to a imagine a power plant being as susceptible today to a fire as back then.

Re: Massive quake hits Japan; Tsunami in Pacific, nations on alert

a 6.6 aftershock/quake hit central Japan, Tokyo bldgs swayed.

From breakingnews.com
Japan's last hour: 6.6, 6.2, 4.5, 4.3, 3.7, 4.1, 3.9, 5.7, 3.4, 5.8 and 3.7 - BNO

Hopefully the decreasing pattern continues. Must be nerve racking.

I would have to think the biggest issue there is keeping the nuclear fuel from exploding due to heat/pressure increases. The update at about 12 noon said that the temperature of the fuel was 50% higher than normal.

The US Air Force was also taking additional coolant supplies to them, to try and combat the fire/ reactor.

MY Father just told me that the waves tore up a port in Oregon. I cannot find anything confirming this but he saw it on the news.
