Nuke dangers nowhere near resolved: Kan's crisis adviser

(snip)

He recalled viewing the government's worst-case scenario in late March. He was officially appointed special adviser to the prime minister on March 29.

The document detailed a hypothetical Fukushima crisis worst case: Eventual contamination from the plant would require the government to assist residents in the Tokyo area to evacuate if they wanted to voluntarily "migrate," based on the same evacuation protocols adopted for the 1986 Chernobyl accident.

The scenario assumed another hydrogen explosion would occur in the reactor 1 building and radiation would force all of the workers at the plant to evacuate.

All of the pools storing hundreds of nuclear fuel assemblies would eventually lose their cooling ability and the assemblies would melt down and breach the pools.

Incredible how close it came and how tenuous the situation is, still. I wonder how many people really understand this.

Hot Spike at Fukushima Nuclear Reactor

(snip)

On Monday, the temperature in Reactor Number 2 reached 158 degrees Fahrenheit, well up from where it was only a few days ago. The temperature should have been stable in the reactor, and the utility says it doesn't know why there's been a spike.

As of Tuesday, the reactor's temperature had dropped only slightly to 157.28 degrees Fahrenheit. Tepco's latest plant status simply says, "We will monitor the progress continuously."

Near the end of TEPCO's morning press conference on February 8, TEPCO's PR man mentioned in passing that the water from the Reactor 2 sub-drain pit stored in the temporary pool was found overflowing.

•No information yet on how much water have been spilled, on the density of radioactive materials in the water, or whether the water spilled into the ocean.

Message From An Anonymous Fukushima Evacuee

(snip)

What is being circulated there is things like “if you speak out about your concerns for radiation, children’s healthy growth will be disturbed ” or “if mother evacuates with her children, the whole family will be destroyed”, and because of this kind of information, many people have started saying “I won’t think about radiation anymore, for I care about my children’s mental health and about my family”.

Unit 2: What May Be Going On Inside

February 8th, 2012 | Add a Comment
[Translate]

Water flow changes at unit 2 likely contributed to the recent heat up. Why changes back and forth between the feedwater system and the core spray system caused a temp increase gives some hints at the location of at least part of the melted fuel.

70% of nuclear reactor hosts cautious on restart
An NHK survey has found that more than 70 percent of Japanese municipalities that host nuclear power plants are cautious about restarting the reactors.

51 of Japan's 54 nuclear reactors are currently out of operation. Restarting them would require the approval of local municipalities.

NHK surveyed 29 municipalities, excluding those in Fukushima Prefecture.

5 of them, or 17 percent, said they would give the go-ahead for the reactors to resume operation. But 21 municipalities, or 72 percent, said they wouldn't allow it, or that they cannot yet decide.

Temperature decreasing inside Fukushima reactor
Tokyo Electric Power Company says it has been able to lower the temperature inside the No.2 reactor at the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant by increasing the amount of water being injected into it.

TEPCO had been struggling to deal with rising temperatures inside the reactor. A thermometer located at the bottom of the reactor read 45 degrees Celsius on January 27th, but rose to over 70 degrees on Sunday. The cause is unknown, and two other thermometers at the reactor have shown no such increase.

TEPCO said on Wednesday that the temperature inside the reactor was 66.7 degrees at 5 AM, 5.5 degrees lower than a day earlier. The temperature gradually declined after the company increased the rate of water injection by 3 tons to 13.5 tons per hour on Tuesday.

Tsunami was up to 21 meters in Fukushima
(snip)

The height of the tsunami was previously assumed to have been about 15 meters at the nuclear plant, but this could not be confirmed because the area within a 20-kilometer radius of the plant is designated a no-entry zone.

They found that areas struck by higher tsunami were concentrated on the coast in the prefecture's center. For example, at Tomioka, which is eight kilometers south of the nuclear plant, a tsunami height of 21.1 meters was observed.

Scientist: Cesium sank 20 cm in Tokyo Bay mud

(snip)

Radioactive cesium likely from the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant has sunk more than 20 centimeters deep in the mud of the seabed in Tokyo Bay, according to a scientist.

While it is known that more than 90 percent of cesium deposits remain in the uppermost 5-cm layer of soil on land, Hideo Yamazaki, a professor of environmental analysis at Kinki University, said he found that seabed cesium concentrations peaked at much greater depths at one location.

Given all that is transpiring in Japan and how the criminal government is handling these events I do not see how this can possibly turn out as anything other than total doom for Japan as a nation and its people.

Those responsible will be held accountable eventually by the people. This will not be forgiven or forgotten. This is the end of Japan I believe and possibly beyond it.

Stress tests evaluation to be concluded
Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency plans to approve safety tests on 2 nuclear reactors in central Japan in a final report scheduled for submission shortly.

The Agency says a panel of experts on Wednesday agreed to complete their evaluation of computer-simulated stress tests for the 2 reactors at the Ohi nuclear plant in Fukui Prefecture.

The final decision on whether to restart the reactors, however, lies with the government. Even if it decides to give the go-ahead, local municipalities will be difficult to convince.

The operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has started taking a closer look at spent fuel inside a storage pool at one of its 4 reactor buildings, in preparation for the eventual removal of the fuel.

Tokyo Electric Power Company put a remote-controlled underwater camera inside the storage pool for Reactor Number 4 on Thursday to examine conditions inside. The firm says it will insert the camera several more times in March.

The Ministry says the bombers hovered near the Japanese archipelago for 12 hours while the A-50 circled over waters off Sanin for 9 hours, forcing Japanese planes to scramble.
