That’s why they still have tsunami warnings in effect in Japan.

What I am worried about is the nuclear situation. Not only for Japan but the jet stream can carry radiation over to here.

It is certainly a concern. Thing is at least if such a thing occurs and it becomes reality, we will have time to prepare here for it.

Well, pretty much all of the earthquakes today for me were normal.. didn’t blink an eye at them (I am far from Sendai.. about 200 miles due South) and on high ground...

But I ask anyone (religious or not) to pray for they folks up in that area.. some families are still trying to find their kids who were in school at the time...

All well in Chiba/Tokyo area atm..

the technology of those nuke plants is actually working, the containment vessels have not been breached despite an earthquake and flood of Biblical proportions

Those people working through all these aftershocks to stabilize the reactors are truly heroic

It seems about 8 or 9 workers have died at oil refineries and other power plants from fumes and burns, of course we hear nothing about that

Worry more about who is going to buy American debt and the spike in unemployment and the commodities inflation the disruption of Japanese economy is going to cause here and worldwide

Actually the latest report on tv is confirming a meltdown and other reactors having simular problems. They are saying that this could effect the globe.

Agree for the most part,but some people deal with stress/bad situations with humor, even though it doesn’t seem appropriate. It is their coping mechanism.

I would recommend everyone have KI pills as part of their emergency preparedness gear, regardless.

Just called my dad to make sure he had the bottle I sent him. It’s right in his medicine drawer.

We need to be praying for these people. And our men and women in uniform that are there to help out. I keep thinking about those reactors. Are they going to slip into the sea? What impact would that have I wonder? This is as you say horrific, I can’t even imagine.

I doubt that. The jet stream comes into play. Even the experts do not know how bad the radiation would be in the event this occurs and from how it is looking right now we really need to at least prepare for that. I always say hope for the best prepare for the worst

You take care, too.

All that radioactivity getting into the ocean makes me wonder if it would kill off everything for miles? Wonder if it could poison the whole ocean?

Really gives you an indication of how crazy and strong and continual those aftershocks have been.

Yes they should be handing out iodine pills. Hmmmm, ok if the radioactive nuclear waste goes into the ocean and the ocean is full of iodine, wonder if that would help to protect it?

What I am worried about is the nuclear situation. Not only for Japan but the jet stream can carry radiation over to here.

I'm due for a new batch of xrays at my dentist this year, so I'll just take advantage of the passing radiation cloud... I'll buy some film and hold it next to my mouth and get the xrays that way. Anything to save a buck.

Well, look at all of the fish dying lately as well. The sardines that washed up recently were tested and had a toxin in their blood stream. They have different answers as to why this is happening. Not only fish but birds dropped out of the sky dead. Is this all related? I have no idea.

7.2

Nothing that big on the map yet

There’s a 6.3 from about 1.5 hours ago.

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_all.php

However, 2 days before the 8.9, there was a swarm of about 20-30 off Japan’s coast. Since the big one, there have been at least 200. I’ve lost count.

With this constant action I’m wondering if there isn’t yet another big one coming.

Just terrible all that has happened over there.

“They are saying that this could effect the globe.”

I don’t think it is time to panic in the USA.
Do not forget, we dropped two nukes on Japan, and there were plenty of above ground nuke test in the late 40s and 50s.

Japan, however, does need a lot of prayers about now.

then they are alarmists who do not understand the process of nuclear safety design that CONTAINS a failed reactor

So far the safety of this design is holding up to conditions beyond what was ever anticipated

The liberal (and stupid) MEdia wants to use the term “meltdown” as if it is nuclear holocaust, because panic boosts ratings

a meltdown THAT IS CONTAINED is not a global problem, not even much of a local problem except they may lose the use of the reactor, a big undustrial loss

I am not a nuclear design expert
But I live with one
