Accuweather, Oct. 5, 2014 at 10:14p ET (emphasis added): Deadly Typhoon Phanfone Lashes Japan… Phanfone is no longer a super typhoon, the status it briefly achieved on Saturday… but remains a dangerous and deadly typhoon… Widespread rain totals of 200 to 250 mm (8 to 10 inches) are also expected from eastern Shikoku to the Honshu prefecture of Fukushima, triggering widespread and life-threatening flash flooding.

AP,  Oct 6, 2014: Powerful Typhoon Phanfone was on course to hit the capital and surrounding areas… In Shizuoka Prefecture, a total of 267,000 households, or 667,000 people, were urged to evacuate to safer ground as of 9:30 a.m., the prefectural government said… It was packing winds of up to 180 kph, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

NHK, Oct. 5, 2014: A strong typhoon is causing massive damage in Japan… one person is dead and 10 others are injured. 3 people remain missing… roofs were blown off houses.

NHK, Oct. 5, 2014 at 8:00p ET: Torrential rain… was recorded… Forecasters are warning mudslides may occur in… eastern Japan, including… Ibaraki [bordering Fukushima] prefectures. They are also warning of mudslides in Tokyo… Strong winds are likely in… northeastern parts of the country. High waves are expected along the Pacific coast. Weather officials estimate that up to 80 to 100 millimeters of rain per hour will fall over a wide area, from western to northeastern Japan. They are warning of fierce winds, high waves, mudslides and flooding [and]calling for caution against lightning strikes and tornados.

Wall St Journal, Oct. 5 at 9:45p ET: [Japan hit with] fierce winds and torrential rain as typhoon Phanfone approached Tokyo on Monday morning… The typhoon reached the mainland a little after 8 a.m. local time… about 150 miles west of Tokyo… it was traveling northeast at a speed of about 28 miles an hour and packing winds of up to 110 miles an hour [177 kph]. The agency has issued rain and flood warnings for a large swath of the Kanto area around Tokyo, and the northeastern Tohoku region… the typhoon [is] expected to proceed northeast along the pacific coast toward the Tohoku region later in the day.

      "…keep the activism going, get in their face."

      Roger that.

      From now on, for every 'FactChecker' comment in the comment section I will post that many links to at news sites in and around the West Coast and nationally under articles relating to nuclear.

      For every comment section that has 5 or more comments by 'FactChecker', a special 'achievement' will be unlocked, meaning I will print out in large bold letters DON'T EAT PACIFIC FISH and pin it on the local supermarket's bulletin board. It will have some precut '' tear-offs on the bottom.

      For every day that 'FactChecker' comments on each and every article, I will send out one postcard that says on the backside DON'T EAT PACIFIC FISH and ENENEWS.COM in white with a black background and send it to Universities on the West Coast addressed to the student government (I was the PR Officer for UAS-J, we loved this stuff).

      'FactChecker' will be the fertilizer that fuels my will.

      Thanks, FactChecker!

        Please see this website article and note comment from AETHER re, HAARP

        Those who say "HAARP and FIKUSHIMA" found in same sentence do not warrant reading further are either fools or trolls……pardon the strong sentiment but………….what else can be said?

        This technology WAS USED to cause the Fukushima disaster. We, the human and animal populations of planet earth are being intentionally decimated. But,never fear………..the globalist NWO have underground mega cities in which they will live and in which they have a massive array of healthy animals and plants and insects etc. Once the bulk of the lowly humans are gone, they will appear with their technology to neutralize the earth's radiation contamination and live happily ever after without us pesky "useless eaters"…..,,,.,that is their term for all of us here at ENEnews and elsewhere.
        Frightening, to say the least, since they have control of all the money, personnel, and equipment to make this happen.
        Natural disasters and "accidents" are used as depopulation a methods because it keeps us from focusing on THEM and their dastardly deeds.
        My comments are facts……….I encourage all readers to fully investigate the cause of the Fukushima disaster.

  • Here is a list International list of Radiation monitoring stations. This list includes a list of private and government run radiation monitoring stations, in Japan and around the world.

    It could be a very useful resource to keep track of potential radioactive releases caused by typhoon structural and flooding damaged, at the Fukushima nuclear disaster site.

    High winds and flooding will re-mobilize contaminants.

  • The Giant - Humbled The Giant - Humbled


    I am a Native American clinical psychologist living in Aotearoa (New Zealand) and previously from New Mexico (Sigh!). Saw Nicky Lagger – who just finished and published the book Dirty Politics regarding the right leaning New Zealand governments use of a professional blogger to attack politicians on the left. He spoke at Otaigo University on Friday at teh school of Public Health regarding the manner in which corporations have targeted public health in media campaigns. The primary move of the corporations has been to attack public health by re-defining public health workers as "troughers" whose interest is in obtaining funding for "erroneous" activities such as research into the health effects of sugar, by asserting that the goal is not health consciousness, but actually is to "get money." The parallel is usually attacks through unregulated blogs on the personally characteristics and credibility of the public health workers. When queried about dealing with it, he simply said, "don't." Don't get sucked into the verbal back and forth. Most of the work of shills and trolls is simply propaganda and misinformation devolving into personal attacks and comments. Sound familiar? So, realistically, point them out for what they are and ignore their bad science. Repeatedly if necessary – no point in getting into a shooting match with an unarmed opponent. Stick to the message and the truth – I applaud you – all of you – Hurray.

      You are right.
      I was thinking of introducing 3 Norwegian rules of engagement,
      but only rule number 1 is working these days:

      "Do not engage!"

      Did you know that Trolls are Norwegian by Nature?

      Yes. Thanks. Glad you are here. I was just in Carlsbad. Those poor people. Radiation was very high. I am recovering from Rad poisoning after being there for only one month in area, and two nights in Carlsbad proper. If you have friends or family there they should get out. BTW-I was raised in Farmington. My playmates were Navaho. Many nearby are suffering from the Uranium mining. More later. Our troll is psychopathic, right? Peace

    Long long ago I lived in Japan not too far from Tokyo and endured a direct hit from a severe typhoon. The winds go on and on, and I know that they are strong enough to lift water, dirt and all kinds of radioactive stuff and sling it around and around as it travels up the coast. I expect that Japan is bathing in radiation now and that huge releases are being carried up into the jet stream soon to arrive at points downwind. Not to mention the opportunity for valves to be opened and pesky tanks to be drained.
    Ana, downwind in Sacramento

  • I have been monitoring the rock patterns on the 25+Sv/h tower, and it is definitely looking rather scary! It appears crimped a bit now where they showed the radiation weakening on the stack tower last year. That beasty falls over, the situation will go south a bit further.

    hope this works url seems a tad strange…

    Fukushima to Be Hit by Typhoon, Causing Ocean Contamination: Tepco
    "The deluge would likely cause seawater to mingle with the radiation-tainted water accumulating in the basements of the reactor buildings at the six-unit plant, allowing 100 trillion becquerels of cesium to escape, according to an estimate that Tepco revealed Friday at a meeting of the Nuclear Regulation Authority," the Japan Times reports.

    According to the media outlet, tidal waves from the storm are likely to reach a maximum height of 26.3 meters or more. The storm is likely to strike the Fukushima No.2 nuclear plant as well, but "its idled reactors and fuel pools" are not expected to be destroyed, Tepco officials assert."

      29 September 2014 Last updated at 09:00 BST

      The UK is facing the dilemma of what to do with its huge stockpile of highly toxic nuclear waste.

      The Sellafield nuclear plant in Cumbria is where most of the waste is stored, the by-product of years of reprocessing.

      By 2020 there will be 140 tonnes of plutonium, the biggest non-military stockpile in the world.

      But opinion is divided on whether it should be turned into fuel for the next generation of nuclear power stations or continue to be stored."

    THG –“Most of the work of shills and trolls is simply propaganda and misinformation devolving into personal attacks and comments.” I couldn’t agree more, but we should drill down a little deeper. Most of these shills and nuclear industry workers have spent their whole lives being spoon fed nonsense and propaganda. Back in the 50’s and 60’s, nuclear power was thought to be the key to developing some type of human utopia – unlimited power – too cheap to meter. Very gradually the nuclear utopia faded as the problems with nuclear power began to mount. Little problems such as the current 66,000 metric tons of high level waste within just the USA and no place to store it. Worldwide cancer and genetic problems are increasing. But the real killer of the nuclear industry is the enormous cost that must be paid to try and control this technology. There is a reason that high level utility managers referred to nuclear reactors as “financial lemons”. Can you imagine the level of cognitive dissonance within the minds of current pro-nukers as they have slowly watched their utopian world turn to shit?

    So the NRC Chairman thinks Nuclear Reactor Operation is "a Social Activity"…sorta like skiing I guess.

    On Saturday, the unexpected eruption of Japan's Mount Ontake killed at least 47 people. It also provoked protests and other petitions to further study the risk of an eruption near the Sendai plant, which is slated to include the first reactors to resume power generation in the country. On Wednesday, Nuclear Regulation Authority Chairman Shunichi Tanaka confirmed that approval for the reactors' restart remains on track. Kyodo reported that he disagreed with volcanologists and others seeking further regulatory discussion of volcanic hazards near the reactors, arguing that it didn't make sense to "stop all social activities" because it's impossible to predict when a natural disaster might happen.

      Reposting, with more charts

      Hamaoka NPP reports puddle in radiation monitored restricted area in basement of turbine building of unit 3

      Huge spike in Shizuoka Prefecture ( location of Hamaoka) measured 10/6 but people thought maybe, it was from all the rain from the typhoon

      But on 10/7 after typhoon passed there were more spikes in Shizuoka
      ( thanks @uketukeman )

      ( shizuoka is second to last chart )

      • bo bo

        Again, just my crackpot theory..

        There was a spike all over Kanto area 10/6 ( remember the radcon 4-5 all over Tokyo ?) but Shizuoka hit first, and it seems, if you compare th charts, that the spikes rolled from west to east, with a time lag.

        My crackpot theory is that spike we saw in Tokyo came from Hamaoka, either they vented, using typhoon as foil, or something happened?
