Desperation in Fukushima Plant Grows as Radiation Levels Briefly Top 10 millisievert

Workers at the Daiichi nuclear plant in Fukushima were ordered to withdraw briefly from the shattered Japanese nuclear station on Wednesday after radiation levels surged, Kyodo news reported, a development that suggested the crisis is getting out of control. Japan authorities suspended operations after the spike in radiation made it too dangerous for workers to remain at the facility.

From Kyodo News:

The radiation level at the quake-hit Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant reached 10 millisievert per hour at one point Wednesday morning, possibly due to the damage at its No.2 reactor the day before, the government’s nuclear safety agency said.

The maximum level was measured at the plant’s front gate at 10:40 a.m. It fell to 6.4 millisievert at 10:45 a.m. and to 2.3 millisievert at 10:54 a.m. but rose again to about 3.4 millisievert as of 11:00 a.m., the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said.

Kyodo also reported that the container of the No.3 reactor of the Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant, 150 miles north of Tokyo, is feared to have been damaged and may have leaked radioactive steam Wednesday, emitting high-level radiation.

  1. Yeaterday i left my comment for helping to safe life and property by satellite-geology,the change of the sea-concentration-current-to compare before and after the event. may be this can be the evidence to predict and prevent the people from tsunami.Satellite can use for the high technology of communication to warn the people who are in the sensitive earthquake areas around the world.It send the signal to medias,mobile phone-which set up the special universal signal that can help the people on the road or some wherelse.It can help for warning except by horn signal as i see in tv.

    For the plants explosion and radiate that still within legal limits.just i read about it the problem from the water level dropping and the rods being exposed and has high air pressure-explosion. A fire pump-inject sea water into the reactor to cover the fuel rods, cool them down and prevent explosion.Exposure for too long a period of time can damage the fuel rods and raise the risk of overheating and possible meltdown.i,m not expert but really need to help may be nonesense.Please let me leave a comment-it concern hydrogen-(water-component)-use water combine with dried ice to keep cool them down prevent from melting point and keep air pressure in a lower too. please ask for collaboration with NewZyland that occured the miners trapped in the mine with methane gas and it had expolsion at anytime .the character of methane kept it cool below STP(by the new chemical substance to reduce the temp.) .So may be it is the same . Please try it.Use chemical substance combine with water. please be careful the workers,we can use the robot for safe.Japan has many robots and many kinds too. there is limited areas )

    From predictable in four months -will have earhtquake again -please rebuilt the some crack on the house to prevent cloolapse. the habitat association of Jimmy Carter can help.Please believe We are the one.

    Thank you
