Tokai and Fukushima Daiichi Worries Grow


LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Tokai Power Plant unit 2 and Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant unit 1 remain under alert today. Cooling systems failures at both Tokai Power Plant unit 2 and Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant unit 1 (photo above) are widening concerns following Japan’s 8.9 earthquake. With multiple nuclear reactors in the region, the number of reactors with cooling systems failing has risen to at least two by Sunday reports Kyodo news.

Fire officials are the source of the latest concern Sunday indicating that now the cooling system at Tokai No.2 nuclear power plant in Japan’s Ibaraki prefecture has stopped. That plant is roughly seventy-five miles from Tokyo. The last concern for a nuclear meltdown or radiation leak was in 1999.

Tokai joins Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant unit 1 suffered failure of its cooling system on Friday or Saturday. Tokyo Electric Power Co has nine other reactors that reportedly also have their own cooling systems. Unlike Tokai, Fukushima is one hundred fifty miles north of Tokyo.

Fukushima’s officials confirmed Saturday, roughly one day after cooling systems failed, that radiation levels were about safe levels. Fukushima sent neighboring residents into emergency evacuation.

Tokai officials have yet to confirm their radiation levels or if evacuations are needed.

UPDATE: Japan Atomic Power Co. issued good news Monday about its Tokai No. 2 nuclear power plant. Japan Atomic says that Tokai No. 2 nuclear power plant has two cooling system pumps. It confirms today that the first cooling system pump did fail on Friday and remains out of service but the the remaining pump has been working and continues to work. Kyodo news agency last Sunday says that the remaining pump is sufficient to keep the cooling under control.

 Fukushima Daiichi Japan Nuclear Meltdown, Radiation Fears Growing

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant unit 1 is creating concerns of a nuclear meltdown. Radiation levels have risen at the Fukushima Daiichi operated by Tokyo Electric Power Co. confirms Kyodo agency. Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) said in a news statement today that its radiation levels around the Fukushima Daiichi Plant have risen beyond safety thresholds prompting news announcement of an “emergency situation”.

But Fukushima Daiichi is not presenting a threat to human health today, so claims TEPCO.

During Friday’s 8.9 earthquake, Fukushima Daiichi suffered damage to its cooling system. The plant is located roughly one hundred fifty miles north of Tokyo. During live news coverage on CNN Saturday, an explosion was depicted. Now as radiation levels are rising, officials claim that winds are blowing south and the situation is getting worse.

Plant officials claim that reactor suffered increasing pressure after its reactor’s emergency cooling system damaged in the earthquake.

Tokyo Electric would not confirm any injuries to date except one employee inside the reactor building, who at the time of the damage, suffered radiation exposure.

But on Sunday, Japan officials began evacuation of two hundred thousand residents in a roughly thirteen mile radius around Fukushima Daiichi. Government officials confirm that potassium iodide pills have been distributed as fears grow that iodine and cesium are now in the air.

But how many residents are injured?

Federal officials just don’t know but put current estimates around 160 people. Moreover, while officials confirm Fukushima Daiichi unit 1 has been damaged, they admit that the condition of the nine remaining reactors remains in jeopardy as well.

Operation Tomodachi Aiding Japan Victims


ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Operation Tomodachi is being sent by the U.S. Marines to aid Japan. Operation Tomodachi (“friendship” in Japanese) was confirmed by U.S. Marine officials in a news statement this weekend. Initial resources being deployed include personnel and services.

The initial movement will be from U.S. Marine stations in Okinawa to the impacted regions of Japan. Personnel dispatched will include initially the 3rd Marine Expeditionary Brigade and the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit. Equipment being confirmed to news will include KC-130J cargo aircraft and CH-46E transport helicopters.

The U.S. Marines told news Friday that the aid effort is being headed out of the Yokota Air Base in Japan. The base has, since the tragedy, also served as a shelter for 600 people.
