Got the old thread up and working again, but starting a new one so it stops having problems (hopefully).

The previous Fukushima Webcam Discussion Thread can be found here: http://enenews.com/fukushima-webcam-discussion-thread

This thread is for discussing matters related to the webcam(s) at Fukushima Daiichi.

UPDATE (via Nuckelchen): “Please note the ‘jst’ time of your observation. Also, describe as best as possible, what you see. Using North, South, East, and West to describe locations. Be specific whenever possible. This may sometimes be the ONLY record we have of such events.”

    21:14 YUP the caravan has started. Trucks and cars both ways.

  • Observing 'possible' human white suit movement on top of R3.

    ??? Hard to tell.

    It's 1 small white spot dead center of R3.

    Appears to move a bit. Like bending over.
    I hope it's not a person. :(

    I would rather report something and be wrong, rather than not report it at all. Maybe someone else will see it?

    Sorry I didn't post this earlier but I've not had opportunity.
    This is a short video of the crane activity at R3 last night.

    I have posted extensively on the 3.5 year history of Fukushima hot radiation particles transferring into the cooler Jetstream.

    Below: short 20 speed clip uploaded by Tepco a few hours after the heavy rains stopped on the day of Typhoon Vongfong hitting the crippled nuclear complex.

    Very graphic example of that process.

    Normally 3 minutes in length, the one hour clips contain 20 seconds of time lapse per second. On the day of Vongfong probably because of wind problems camera they uploaded five one hour clips in a row and each only spanned 10 high speed seconds.

    20 seconds real time for each one film clip second:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b3WuMQpy2_A&list=UUDu1KkkwuzybKx6MXQgGHuw

    SP: A low-lying stratocumulus cloud passes from left to right across the complex at very, very high speed because of the typhoon aftermath.

    From left to right is Units 2, 3 and 4. Unit 2 and 3 especially are always emitting very high volumes of invisible radiation particles airwards and also leaking hundreds of tons daily of radioactive contaminated water that is a byproduct of Tepco cooling the meltdown areas inside the lower wrecked containment substructure.

    Feed and bleed. They pour in massive amounts of water to keep the fuel from refissioning and quickly contaminated water leaks out in basement holes and continues down to the Pacific Ocean a few feet away.

    Of interest in the clip: heat shrinkage of the very fast cloud as it passes over MOX unit 3.

    Duck and cover Canucks. The leading edge of the Vongfong stirred up radiation on the 13th (14th in Japan) is whipping across the continent:

    Looks like the COW states got lucky for once.

    Two nurses who treated the U.S. index patient are infected.
    The first nurse exposed several others who are now being monitored.

    The second nurse jumped on a plane, flew several states away, ran around town making wedding arrangements, then flew back. If news reports are accurate, she may have made the entire trip while in an infectious state. Now the CDC is attempting to track down and interview two full planes loads of individuals, those with whom she had contact prior to leaving, as well as those with whom she had interactions while in her hometown in Ohio. It was also revealed that her original flight from Texas to Ohio was full of nurses from all over NE Ohio returning from a convention.

    The cruise ship Carnival Magic is currently underway and returning to Galveston Texas from Belize with at least one symptomatic Dallas healthcare worker and more than 4600 other passengers and crew. The ship originally left Texas on Sunday, October 12, made a port call at Mahogany Bay, Honduras on Wednesday, before moving on the Belize where it was turned away.

    It was revealed that the Obama Administration is actively making plans to bring non-citizens suffering from Ebola into the U.S. for treatment.

    This is how pandemics start. And given the deadly nature of the disease, the ill prepared state of many U.S. hospitals to respond, and the weak and conflicting guidance being given to hospitals and the general public by the CDC, it is imperat

    I'm sorry to post 3 times, but I didn't realize that it took that long to have it reviewed or posted. The above notification I received and is credited to USA..Alerts which is a first alert notification service. Their address: alerts@threatjournal.com
    I am not connected in any way with their site, but they do have a great service.

  • Yes, I'm sorry you post 3x a completely unrelated comment. Fuk!
    2014 10 21 16:24 Fukushima Daiichi. Nothing moving but the situation is still very fluid and will be for decades with some luck, and more.
    Hi all, Nuckelchen et al.

    Small crane movement near R3, 19:46 JST. Wonder what's so important at this time of night? Seems to be hazy around R2/R3/CSFP as usual.

    Less common activity tonight, some kinda orange glow from a crane device or something at the bottom of unit 4 cam, 20:23 JST. I gotta go to sleep but there may be something in the footage tonight somewhere.

    The local news here flashed a clip for about 10 secs that said the Dallas Pres Hospital have 75 people penned up for observation. Then yesterday the local news said 45 of those holed up were released. So there're still approx 30 not known status. I know this is OT but maybe we need a Ebola forum.

    TBS webcam 1, north, 10-21-2014 21:36 JST time. TBS webcam 1 shows increased emissions from the Reactor 3 and 4 side of the video view. Common Fuel Pool shows some emissions and lights on the far right side of the view. Little crane stands in midview with dosimeter, large cranes surround Reactor 1 'tent'. Have to wonder if TEPCO, since they cant do anything else right and have managed to pollute outside the port with heavy radiation, now have decided to remove the tent covering of Reactor 1.
    TBS webcam 4, south, shows some out of focus area around the left side of the view, and the usual high radiation, or "Fukushima normal" emissions over Reactors 3 and 4. Lights in the Common Fuel Pool. Wonder if the groundwater ingress (FLOODING) into the CFP has stopped or slowed after the typhoon? Not likely. Futabagun webcam shows even lighting over the entire plant and to the north and south area surrounding the facility. Since the view now has a filter, could be the dark cloud effect, on a clear night, is also part of the filter. You can, however, see the structures, so at least the vent stacks are still upright. They do concern me.

    Back from sailing offshore.
