Excuse me while I panic…
Another fire broke out on Wednesday at an earthquake-crippled Japanese nuclear plant that has sent low levels of radiation wafting into Tokyo and triggered international alarm, suggesting that the crisis may be slipping out of control.
Japan suspended operations to prevent a stricken nuclear plant from melting down Wednesday after a surge in radiation made it too dangerous for workers to remain at the facility.
The U.S. Navy said Tuesday that very low levels of airborne radiation were detected at Yokosuka and Atsugi bases, about 200 miles to the north of the Fukushima nuclear power plant.
The wind near a quake-damaged nuclear complex in northeast Japan, which has released radiation into the atmosphere, will blow from the northwest and out into the Pacific Ocean on Wednesday, a weather official said.
In summary, what we have now is a crisis that is slipping out of control, everyone is leaving the plant, evacuations are underway and radioactive materials are blown towards USA….
Can a radioactive cloud reach US?
Theoretically YES! How do I know that?
During WW2 Japan was sending balloons with bombs into the jet-stream. Some of those bombs landed as far as MICHIGAN! In just 3 days!

I lived trough the Chernobyl disaster and even though I was only a teenager back then I remember the scared and panicked people. We lived some 800 miles from the site. So we did not know what has happened for a few days. The government imposed an information blackout. The only way we learned that there is something serious that has happened and what was going on at Chernobyl was from the radio news coming beyond the iron curtain…
And then when the rumors spread and everyone was talking about the accident, the government officials stated, that there is no imminent danger to the public, we should not panic, everything is under control, everyone must carry on with their daily activities as usual….
About 10 years later (after the fall of the communism) there was a spike in the number of people dying from lung cancer. After X-Ray examination they found people carrying so called ‘hot particles” in their lungs. Those were microscopical parts of the reactor blown into the atmosphere and then carried for thousands of miles…read here how many parts of Europe ( mostly Hungary, Germany, Poland, Finland, Bulgaria) were contaminated by those ‘hot particles’ .
Now we have the same situation… Uncontrollable atomic reaction and governments who say we should not panic.
At the same time Japan is desperate, cannot control the situation and is seeking DIRECT U.S. MILITARY HELP
One thing I learned years ago, is to take everything, that the government say with grain of salt (I always use Iodised salt)

I hope and pray that this situation is not going to turn into bigger disaster than Chernobyl
BTW the same government officials that are saying that everything is OK, have on their disposal government bunkers, protective wear, food, water, energy generators, filters and many other things to insure THEIR SURVIVAL for few months.
I am not telling you to start chewing those iodine potassium tablets.
That would be dangerous.
Just get prepared you know…food, water, basic things
Do you realize that we are in the current situation, because the reactor was designed in a way that something like the events that happened(devastating earthquake, tsunami, 3 safe devices failing, unable to control water and reactor core) were considered to be so unlikely, GE never considered the possibility of them happening…
