See April 9 report: Radiation skyrockets to 100 Sv/hr at Fukushima reactor No. 1, along with sudden rise in temperature immediately after 7.4 quake

TEPCO had claimed the the 100 SV/hr reading was caused by a gauge that was “most likely” broken.

Japan Orders Nuclear Plant Operators to Obtain More Emergency Generators, New York Times, April 9, 2011:

Radiation readings spiked sharply in one reactor at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant after a powerful aftershock late Thursday, according to data released by the government, a development that might indicate new damage to the already compromised reactor.

But the plant owner, the Tokyo Electric Power Company, said the gauge used to measure radiation was most likely broken. …

  • ATTN: Need ALL HANDS ON DECK!!

    ALL HANDS ON DECK!!! THIS IS A WORLDWIDE DISASTER! Order Japanese and other International Billionaires and Billionaire Corporations to pay for EMERGENCY clean-up NOW!!! STAT!!! ASAP!!! PULL OUT THE STOPS!!! All military, nuclear, and energy companies should be forced to contribute to this cause because it is clearly a universal HEALTH AND SAFETY CRISIS!!!

    The gauge was most likely broken–that seems most likely to be an excuse. An excuse that is about as believable as “the dog ate my homework”.

    Levels increasing due to spread being that such highly toxic mass amounts, the radius is expanding expeditiously !
    May be seeping into free flowing underground water sources due to endless spraying on contaminated areas saturation and moving downward and outward away from reactors !
    In a few months the whole Island south may be contaminated through these waters as has been through air.

    They have the local airport open there now and taking a few flights a day in.

    Ireland finds 5.3 pCi/l of I-131 in milk samples and 70 pCi/l in rainwater according to RPII today.

    Fukushima was once called “Shinobu-no-sato,” the village of Shinobu. In the 12th century Suginome Taro built Suginome Castle and the village began to develop as a castle town surrounding Fukushima Castle. During the Edo period, Fukushima began to grow prosperous from the production of silk…
    As of 2003, the city has an estimated population of 290,866 and a population density of 389.68 persons per km…

    Possible writings Shinobu can be written using different kanji characters and can mean:

    忍ぶ, “stealth / endure”
    偲ぶ, “recall / remember”
    慕ぶ, “recall / remember”
