Our thoughts and prayers are with all the people of Japan and others around the world who are affected by this massive earthquake and devastating tsunamis. This earthquake was reportedly 8000 times stronger than the one which struck our city 2 weeks ago causing widespread destruction and the loss of approximately 200 lives. That is mind-boggling, and the pictures we've seen from Sendai, a city about twice the size of Christchurch, are horrific.

Don't overblow it! There was an explosion/fire in a power generator, i.e. not in the core that holds the rods. It seems there was also a leak in one reactor. Modern reactors have automatic shut-down failsafes so the risk of meltdown is quite low. And they did shut down as soon as the quake started as far as I know. But there may be radioactive contamination (in the water). It wouldn't be the first time in history or in Japan for that matter.

Venting air from reactor container suspended

The operation at Fukushima No.1 plant to lower pressure of the containment vessel has been suspended due to high radiation levels at the site.

Pressure of the reactor container is rising as its cooling system became dysfunctional due to a blackout and power generator breakdown. This has raised concern about possible damage to the container.

The power station's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, began to vent air from the reactor container at 9AM on Saturday.

Under the plan, 2 valves close to the container would be opened manually, but radiation level on the second valve was found higher than expected.

The operation has been suspended because of the possibility that workers could be exposed to radiation. The utility is reportedly studying how to open the valve by replacing workers at a short interval, or using electric remote control.

The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency says if radioactive substance is released in the air, safety of residents evacuated beyond a 10-kilometer radius from the No.1 reactor will be ensured.

"Who?" I'd ask "What?" instead. Hint: the Japanese are very good at making them.

2.4 meters.
That's by how much the entire island Honshu moved west because of this quake.
Give it a moment for this fact to explode in your mind.

The magnitude of the disaster is large, very sorry for all those people who lost their lives, their fortunes, their homes. Crying or Very sad
I read that water penetrated about 50 km into the mainland in some places.
The videos are shocking. Tiny little people we are.
