A STATE of emergency has been declared at a Japanese nuclear facility at Onagawa after excessive radiation levels were recorded there following a major earthquake, the UN atomic watchdog. The news came as the country was already battling a feared meltdown of two reactors at the ageing Fukushima atomic plant.
“a. Onagawa Nuclear Power Station (Onagawa-machi and Ishinomakishi,
(1) The status of operation
Unit 1 (524MWe): automatic shutdown, cold shut down at 0:58, March 12
Unit 2 (825MWe): automatic shutdown
Unit 3 (825MWe): automatic shutdown, cold shut down at 1:17, March 12”
Can only be No. 2 unit.
I speculate the emergency was a request to release radioactivity, not that the emergency was caused by the release (as the article seems to imply.
God help these people. Serious, go to church, pray hard.
well someone isn’t telling the truth..why would they declare an emergency if the radiation is coming from the other plant(which is in a different state a decent ways ago)
*Meanwhile, radiation monitored at the Onagawa nuclear power plant in Miyagi Prefecture on the Pacific coast shot up on Sunday, Tohoku Electric Power Co. said, adding that it was likely caused by radioactive substances let out at the troubled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture.Radiation levels were very low but about 400 times as high as in normal times, the power supplier said, dismissing the possibility that the Miyagi plant was to blame.
We have an issue, we are down wind
We were downwind in 1945 too. Also for the hundreds of above-ground tests conducted by the US.
Hate to tell you but you were downwind of Chernobyl too.
