Huge Explosion At Japanese Nuclear Plant
Some sites, such as Stratfor, are irresponsibly terming it a “nuclear meltdown,” but, no official confirmation of that as of yet, though there are fears of it happening: Huge blast at Japan nuclear power plant
A massive explosion has rocked a Japanese nuclear power plant after Friday’s devastating earthquake.
A huge pall of smoke was seen coming from the plant at Fukushima and several workers were injured.
Japanese officials fear a meltdown at one of the plant’s reactors but say the container housing it was not damaged.
Officials ordered the evacuation zone around the plant expanded from a 10km radius to 20km. BBC correspondent Nick Ravenscroft said police stopped him 60km from the Fukushima-Daiichi plant.
Japan’s nuclear agency said on Saturday that radioactive caesium and iodine had been detected near the number one reactor of the power station.
The agency said this may indicate that containers of uranium fuel inside the reactor may have begun melting.
Obviously, as one cruises around the Liberal-o-sphere, this means that all nuclear power is bad and that is should all be stopped, and, instead, we can go with wind and solar for all our power. If they left those methods get beyond the planning/implementation stages.
Of course, I wonder how those methods would have stood up with an earthquake and tsunami knocking them down, breaking the wind turbines and solar panels, covering them with water, and flooding the storage batteries.
Anyhow, everyone wish for the best, and keep the Japanese people in your prayers. They are still being rocked by aftershocks that are larger than most regular earthquakes, and there are still serious concerns over more tsunamis from the aftershocks. Watching the video, seeing the pictures, I’m not sure of “tragic” covers it.
