    AN explosion was heard and white smoke was reportedly seen at Japan's quake-hit Fukushima No.1 nuclear plant today, Jiji press agency said.

    Several workers were reported to be injured in the explosion, and smoke was seen billowing out of the plant.

    The Japan Nuclear Safety Agency later said however the explosion was not at the reactor.

    Radioactivity at the plant was 20 times over the normal level, and Japan's Nuclear Safety Commission has said it may be experiencing meltdown.

    Oh man, this is intense.

    If a melt down happens we are in jeopardy for sure according to the sxperts. Keep im mind that in WW-II the Japanese releast balloons with bombs that came her on the prevailing winds which are still the same.

    And you are right about the damade here. I have been glued to the news fo over 24 hours.

    TEPCO #1 reactor ceiling has collapsed. This is very very bad.

    Most news sources I'm reading say it's unrelated to the reactor. The maintenance technology for reactors is complex and in of itself can break down or explode.

    Scratch that. Nuclear material has been detected outside of the plant. Meltdown is probable.

    That's what I've been posting...


    The wind is blowing east, out to the ocean. Local news is confirming that explosion occurred and roof collapsed.

    Nope the roof collapsing is so very very bad. That outer structure would be the last hope of containment when the pressure breaches the rest of the containment housing. Note the use of WHEN and not IF. This will not end well.

    The outer is just shell, it's the inner containment that's the important part... and it's cooking like a pressure cooker.

    That's not.. a good sign at all.
