I was up from 2:30 am til about 4 Thursday night watching news about it, and seeing that awful tsunami coming in. It was like something from a movie. Unbelievably horrible.
We've just been watching Wolf Blitzer grill the Japanese Ambassador about the nuclear plant. He says they're working on it themselves, they're doing all they can to cool it down using seawater and some sort of acid and that the explosion was an outer building....nothing to do with the reactor.
I smell a coverup.
Why isn't an explanation being given for the explosion? If it was an outer building, what did it house and why did it blow up the way that it did??
They already reported that some people at nearby hospitals ( near to the reactor, that is) were tested for radiation and came up pos.
If I were them I'd be on tv and internet yelling "Help Us! US, Russia, Australia- whomever has nuclear plant knowledge- feel free to offer ideas and help!" Any help they can get at this point to stop a meltdown or a worsening of what's already happened should be welcomed.
There are 4 other plants that had declared emergency status as well. I haven't heard much more about them.
This whole thing is just mind-boggling. So many people. No electricity- and it's freezing. No fresh water, no more food. How will they get to them to rescue the trapped ones?
I think every country with aircraft carriers needs to mobilize and get helicopters onto those carriers along with water, food, blankets, basic clothing, and medicines and get on the way to Japan! Then the copters can start going to the innnermost areas that are hardest hit and hardest to get to and at least make drops of supplies to help keep alive those who are right now. Also, drop in search and rescue crews and dogs.
Such a huge undertaking. This is more massive than we've ever seen before.
I pray for those people...as I'm still praying for those in Christchurch.
I read somewhere on the 'net that the earthquake C'Church suffered last year was a precursor to one in Japan, and that their recent one was a precursor to this one.
Don't know that there's any truth to that, but like you say, H, it's the ring of fire and the plates are on the move, so.......
