Well done FM
So the earthquake was BlackBeard's doing? hmmm, that bastard. Whitebeard's right, he can't destroy humanity.
ALERT: POSSIBLE BLAST AT DAIICHI NO. 3 REACTOR: REPORT
» ALERT: 3 METRE TSUNAMI TO REACH PACIFIC COAST IN MINUTES
20 minutes ago, there was another possible explosion at Fukushima #1 nuclear power plant, white smoke seen, and sounds of an explosion at number 3 reactor. It was a hydrogen explosion, which would've blown away the outer casing.
^ Yo if you can should add those links to your first post but are you serious?!! Another Tsunami?!!! And a possible blast?
Edit: Watching it now.
Links are already added, watching NHK World on Rockinrooster's MSNBC feed, the link's in my previous post and also on first post on front page. Breaking news, awaiting more details, explosion was confirmed.
As for the Tsunami, there was a 6.5 magnitude quake/aftershock an hour ago, and they detected a sealevel change of 5 metres, with waves of 3 metres (9 feet) heading towards the shore. Possible Tsunami, not sure as of yet.
Seriously bookmark this: http://justin.tv/rockinroosters17
Edit: ok, no Tsunami, it was just a sealevel change, however there's live video of the explosion at reactor 3, it was the similar explosion that happened to reactor 1 earlier, when the hydrogen and oxygen ignited under the reactor, blowing away the outer walls, not sure on the radiation leak as of yet, however they're saying reactor containment vessel has not been breached and they're still pumping water to cool it.
Reactor 3 exploded!!!! Not like those plants are made to explode like a bomb though, just it collapse in itself. The danger is the radiation leakage.
Edit: Supposedly reactor 3 didn't exploded only the walls around it collapsed. The core is still in tact and they are still trying to cool it down.
They just showed the change of sea level by 5 meters.
Pentagon: Radiation detected 60 miles away from the leak site.
Updated NHK World Links:
the ustream version is more clear and less laggy, and here's their radiocast:
on the right side. Will update the first post with the links also.
Anyone read about Ishihara calling the disaster "tenbatsu"?
The man needs shooting, same as the cunt leading Sea Sheppard. Huge amount of innocent people get injured or killed and these two idiots make out as if they deserved it.
There's a similar sentiment ("tenbatsu") in East Asian countries amongst a minority of people who are still butthurt over WWII.
I mean, even sensitivity aside, the Japanese have suffered enough since WWII. No one was calling the 2004 tsunami a punishment from heaven.
It's been so sad and rough allready, I just hope the nuclear problems won't get worse.
Ishihara I cannot believe they elected a guy like that. He's literally saying the Japanese people deserved it? At least elect a lesser evil.
That guy needs to get punch in the face real hard. All Japan ever done is slaughter dolphins and whales.
Another explosion, it's the third one, this time at FukuShima Daiichi Nuclear Reactor #2, this one is more serious than the reactor 1 and 3 explosions. The core rods were exposed to the air for 2 and half hours, the rods are rusted out/eroded, they believe this might cause a full meltdown, much harder to get under control now.
Just to let you know, on the Nuclear Agency's threat level chart, where 1 is green meaning lowest risk, and 7 is red/pink meaning complete meltdown, Chernobyl was a 7, Three Mile Island in 1979 was a 5, and the Japan crisis is a 4. This is mainly due to the fact that no nuclear fission has occured for the last 4 days since the reactors were shut off automatically after the Tsunami. But they are really having trouble cooling off the residual heat from those rods. Partial meltdown has already occurred, but even the full meltdown may not release that much radiation, but that corner of Japan will definitely be offlimits for the next thousand years. Will post a video later.
What else. They found 2 thousand bodies that washed ashore at one prefecture, and another thousand at another. Confirmed deathtoll is 4600. The Town of Minami Sanriku was completely wiped off the map, 96% destruction, population 17,000, they believe over 10,000 dead in that town alone. And Sandai had another 10k missing.
Breaking News: The Japan nuclear situation is now worse than 3 mile island. Workers have been evacuated, the containment vessel for reactor 3 is breached, meltdown is imminent or already occured. Japan's in deep shit now.
