Alert: Tokyo, Japan Is Now Evacuating, Radiation Threat, Citizen Journalist Breaks Down While Reporting

This heart wrenching report by citizen journalist Johah70757 will cut your soul in pieces to watch, but I had to post it. Japan is evacuating, and as Jonah tries to report on what is happening he comes unglued. The situation at Fukushima nuclear plant is apparently now irretrievable and people are being advised to NOT drink any water in Tokyo and Jonah states that everyone is now leaving, or trying to leave.

Please pray that everyone who is able can get out of Japan as soon as humanly and divinely possible. Pray for Japan!!

Breaking: New Hydrogen Explosion Rocks Nuclear Power Plant 135 Miles North of Tokyo, Second Quake Now Predicted

14 Mar

This is a breaking story first spotted on The Bloomberg News website.This post will be updated every 15 minutes. There is now a 20 mile exclusion zone around the plant which exploded. The plant is located 135 miles north of Tokyo Japan. 22 people have already tested positive for radiation exposure close the the plant. That number is expected to rise. Government officials in Japan are urging calm.

Huffington Post Breaking Coverage:

Fukushima Explosion: Japan Nuclear Plant Blast Believed To Be Hydrogen Explosion

Cited: “Japan’s chief cabinet secretary says a hydrogen explosion has occurred at Unit 3 of Japan’s stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. The blast was similar to an earlier one at a different unit of the facility.

Yukio Edano says people within a 12-mile (20-kilometer) radius were ordered inside following Monday’s. AP journalists felt the explosion 30 miles (50 kilometers) away.”

Edano says the reactor’s inner containment vessel holding nuclear rods is intact, allaying some fears of the risk to the environment and public.

Breaking video of the most recent hydrogen explosion at Japan nuclear power plant:

Yesterday’s First Explosion, video coverage:

From the Bloomberg website, 45 minutes ago [8:20 pm PT ] :

A hydrogen explosion occurred at Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima Dai-Ichi No. 3 reactor at 11:01 a.m. local time today, Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry said.

Tokyo Electric spokesman Daisuke Hirose said smoke was seen rising from the reactor. Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency reported earlier pressure at the reactor had fallen and Prime Minister Naoto Kan said the situation remains a concern.

The pressure declined after rising earlier today, Hidehiko Nishiyama, deputy director-general at the safety agency, said at a media briefing. The Fukushima Dai-Ichi station lies 220 kilometers (135 miles) north of the Japanese capital.

Asia’s largest utility is seeking to avoid a meltdown of at least two reactors at the nuclear power station by flooding them with water and boric acid to eliminate the potential for a catastrophic release of radiation into the atmosphere. The station lost power to keep the reactor core cool after the March 11 earthquake, the largest ever recorded in Japan.

On March 12 a hydrogen leak caused a blast that destroyed the walls of the No. 1 reactor. Four workers were injured in the explosion, while no damage was reported to the container holding the reactor’s radioactive core, according to Tokyo Electric.

Winds in the area of the Fukushima plant are blowing at less than 10 kilometers (6 miles) per hour generally in an northeasterly and northerly direction, according to a 9 a.m. update from the Japan Meteorological Agency today.
