New Blast, Container Breached. Radioactive Water Leaking Out

This is as much of a worst case scenario as you can get. The containment area has been breached. Radiation has leaked out into the air and by water. This process cannot be stopped, all attempts to stop it have failed and they are evacuating people from the plant.

"This could be the worst case scenario for the Nuclear Power Plants in Japan" is a direct quote from the live press conference.

They have said there is no "immediate" harm to people... not good words with not much of an assurance for what sort of problems the people who live and work there.

The new blast came from the containment area, unlike the previous ones.

Details are slow in coming, even while listening live to the press conferences and there is low confidence as in the past they have been slammed for not giving important information out in a timely manner.

So, when they say this is a worst case scenario, you really have to listen and wonder.

They also said the situation is "not stable" and this whole drama is unfolding and developing live...

Stay tuned....

Very sad...........very scary.

Crap. I have been amazed at the number of people with kind of blase attitudes toward this because it is happening half a world away...NOW they are starting to pay attention. This scares the crap out of me -- and has since it first happened. It can happen anywhere and just because it isn't in your backyard doesn't mean it isn't awful. Those poor, poor people.

It's a mess, anyone who is not scared or at least a little worried is a fool, a happy, blind, fool probably obsessing on the latest fashions for Spring and what color to paint the house after the renovations are finished.

Amazes me how many people I meet are clueless.

It can happen anywhere, we need to learn from this because God Forbid the next time it could be in our own backyard.

Or we may need to deal with possible radiation problems if there are meltdowns at all the reactors in question and at this point what other than Superman dumping half of the Pacific Ocean on them is going to put the fires out??

Try to find some nice music, go to sleep, pray for better news in the morning............
