    Attn1 State of emergency declared at Japan Nuclear Plant

    HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!!!! They cant put out the fire!!!

    TOKYO The Japanese government issued a state of emergency at a nuclear power plant Friday after a cooling system failure in the wake of the giant earthquake and tsunami off the east coast of the Pacific nation.
    An administrator at the Tohoku Electric Power Co's Onagawa facility said the process for the cooling reactor is "not going as planned," adding that "nuclear emergency situation" has been declared. The company asked people nearby to stay calm, the official TV news channel NHK reported.

    A fire broke out at the plant following the quake, the Kyodo news agency said. Prior to the Kyodo report, the company had said it had not received information on whether there had been any problems at the nuclear power plant after the disaster.
    Separately, Fukushima Prefecture, the site of a Tokyo Electric Power nuclear power plant, said on Friday that the plant's reactor cooling system was functioning, denying an earlier report that it was malfunctioning.

    Fire break out at nuclear power plant after Japanese quake
    Agencies

    Last Updated: Mar 11, 2011
    A fire has broken out at one of Japan's nuclear power plants after the 8.9 magnitude earthquake that struck the country today, according to news agency reports.

    The fire is reported to be at Tohoku Electricity’s Onagawa plant. The Japanese government has declared a nuclear power emergency situation, the news agency Jiji said, quoting the Japanese defence ministry .

    However, the UN nuclear watchdog in Vienna saidthe four Japanese nuclear power plants closest to the earthquake have been safely shut down. "The four Japanese nuclear power plants closest to the quake have been safely shut down," the agency said in a statement, adding it was liaising with the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry on further details of the situation.

    Radioactivity surges at stricken Japanese nuke plant

    THIS IS HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!


    TOKYO Radiation reached around 1,000 times the normal level Saturday in the control room of the No. 1 reactor of the Fukushima nuclear power plant after the cooling system failed, Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said.

    The agency said early Saturday that some radiation has also seeped outside the plant, prompting calls for further evacuations of the area. Some 3,000 people have already been urged to leave their homes.

    The radiation surge followed Japan's massive earthquake, which caused a power outage that disabled a nuclear reactor's cooling system, triggering the government's first-ever state of emergency at a nuclear plant.

    3 nuclear reactors in trouble after Japan quake

    Wow this is getting serous, solar and coal is starting to look better by the day.Hopefully we can learn something from this disaster

    <Cooling systems fail; radiation seeps outside one; thousands evacuated>

    <Radiation surged to around 1,000 times the normal level in the control room of the No. 1 reactor of the Fukushima Daichi plant, Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said. Radiation it was not clear how much had also seeped outside, prompting widening of an evacuation area to a six-mile radius from a two-mile radius around the plant. Earlier, 3,000 people had been urged to leave their homes.>


    <About an hour after the plant shut down, however, the emergency diesel generators stopped, leaving the units with no power for important cooling functions.>

    Re: State of emergency declared at Japan Nuclear Plant

    States of emergency have been declared at FIVE nuclear power plants now. This is serious as hell. Has anybody seen what these nuke plants look like? Let me show you one:



    Notice something? No containment dome. They look just like the ones at Chernobyl. This could be a disaster which could be unparalleled by any other in history. I pray to God that Japan does not end up going through another Hiroshima or Nagasaki. There won't be explosions if any of these plants melts down, but the radiation and fallout will be there, nonetheless.

    The irony contained within the possibilities here staggers the imagination. Let us all pray that a meltdown does not happen.

    Cooling equipment fails at Fukushima No.2 plant

    The Tokyo Electric Company has warned the Japanese government of an emergency situation at a second nuclear plant in quake-stricken Fukushima Prefecture.

    Tokyo Electric issued the warning about its Fukushima Number Two Plant on Saturday. The warning follows one earlier in the day for the Number One Plant.

    The government's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said equipment failures have made it impossible to cool 3 of the plant's 4 reactors. It said the situation poses no immediate threat of a leakage of radioactive materials.

    The agency is considering whether it needs to issue an evacuation advisory to people living near the plant.

    Heh,this part(The agency is considering whether it needs to issue an evacuation advisory to people living near the plant.)

    I would be so far away that they would have to make a long distance phone call telling me to move.

    Re: 3 nuclear reactors in trouble after Japan quake

    I'd like to point out that these are all older designs, much more dangerous than what are currently being built today, and that this will probably be used as anti-nuclear power propaganda by the same people that whine about the environmental problems that the world is experiencing when they could all be solved by transitioning to nuclear power.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."
