    My fiance's Japanese instructor is currently there... not to mention a friend's family living in Hawaii, which is also getting hit.

    I live in Seattle, WA. I hope Seattle doesn't get washed away when the tsunami hits the US west coast.
    I also hope that the studios in Japan that make anime and video games weren't destroyed.

    Apparently the entire Pacific Basin is at risk, albeit a low risk.

    Somehow I'm not so concerned, since a whole country just got shut down and at least 300 lives have been lost with the count still climbing.

    The good news is that http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ is NOT down. So the Nintendo of Japan server is NOT down, which means no power loss and no internet connectivity loss at their server. YAY!
    I'll check other Japanese site to see if they still are up too.

    And unless you are from Japan, or have family or friend who live or are vacationing there, then I suspect that (like myself) your primary interest in the country of Japan is limited to the anime and video games they make for our entertainment, and the TVs and cars they make that we in the US depend on for news coverage and transportation.

    This might come as a surprise for you, but not everyone needs a familial connection to a tragedy to be concerned about it.

    How about caring less about material items which CAN be replaced and care more about the flesh and bones of peoples lives as well as the animals that will NEVER ever be replaced again.

    And I thought you hated Nintendo? You contradict yourself yet again

    It's nothing to worry about. Unfortunately Japan has this thing about not shutting down their reactors, but from what I've been reading the damage was done to a secondary cooling system. While it is definitely a problem, it's nothing that can't be dealt with until it is fixed. I'd imagine they'd run it at a considerably lower power than normal, if not shut it down entirely (but as I said, Japan avoids doing this), and they'll get the system repaired and working again.

    Given the problem it doesn't sound like there'd be a major radiation leak, but considering that they've recommended evacuation of the surrounding area it would hint that there is probably leakage of some of their coolant(s), which could possibly be emitting radiation in low (but higher than you'd care to be exposed to) amounts.


    Edit: It's coming across the news now that they've been able to cool down the reactor.

    Edit 2: Confirmation on what damage was done. The main cooling system was damaged but is operable, and the back-up cooling system was damaged and flooded. Definitely worse than what I thought, but nothing that can't be dealt with until it's repaired. The main problem was that the coolant system runs on electricity, and the plant lost power. A US ship was able to bring in some coal to generate power until they can get the electricity up and running again.

    ): I'm just overall worried, but I always look at hope you know. I'm just like that really. God bless those who have fallen and are trying to survive the aftermath. This is very tragic and knowing horrible things like this happen in life, live every single moment of it, appreciate little things. But most importantly, be thankful of things you do have. ♥ I'll let Japan have my love and blessing, but God loves them so much more (as well as everyone else) ♥ /Religion ;P
    I'm dead serious about all the things I said though, Japan can stay strong. ^_^

    Not sure where in Japan this was taken but this is how bad tsunamis have been, dwarfing 2 story houses.

    I banned VG555 for being a royal idiot in this thread. The people waiting for news about people involved in this disaster shouldn't need to have jerks like him trolling in the thread.



    Hey look, Japan made a movie about me!

    I do say, these things would be of "Biblical proportions" if you consider how small the world was to the victims of plagues in the Bible. Very worrying things we have going here...

    Some of my Californian acquaintances who happen to be surfers are totally stoked about this. Ironically most of my Japanese study partners don't seem to care at all.

    Although I know no one personally from Japan, I was really saddened to hear this news. My condolences to anyone who has lost family members or friends in Japan due to this.

    "The power of the earthquake off north-east Japan shifted the earth's axis by nearly 10in (25cm), Earth-issues.com reports, citing the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology. The phenomenon is not unusual for a major quake."

    And the island of Honshu has moved 2.3 meters. The quake was 8.000 times stronger than the one that took place in New Zealand.

    I find it really pathetic and immature how a bunch of people are making Godzilla jokes about this incident. =__=

    Let's keep this thread clean of all ignorant references to the disaster then. I know not enough of it, but a cooling plant in the Fukushima Prefecture is at risk of undergoing a nuclear meltdown.
    http://www.latimes.com/news/la-sci-j...tory?track=rss
    Quote Originally Posted by LA Times
    About 18% of Japan's 33 nuclear reactors have been shut down in the wake of the magnitude 8.9 earthquake that struck offshore Thursday and triggered a massive tsunami, but officials are particularly troubled by events at one of them — the 480-megawatt Fukushima No. 1 plant in Fukushima Prefecture, where the emergency cooling system has not been functioning properly and authorities fear a meltdown.

    Emergency authorities have ordered the evacuation of all civilians in a two-mile radius around the power plant, a total of about 3,000 people, and are planning to vent slightly radioactive steam from the plant, which is located about 160 miles north of Tokyo. Those within a six-mile radius were warned to stay in their homes.

    Significant shaking associated with an earthquake causes a nuclear reactor to automatically shut down, with control rods being plunged into the core to stop the nuclear reactions. It does, however, continue to produce massive amounts of heat that must be dissipated by the emergency cooling system.
    About the complications for the Japanese people's receiving power after this:
     
    Quote Originally Posted by LA Times
    The shutdown of the nuclear reactors affects perhaps 8% of Japan's electrical generating capacity. Most of those plants should be able to go back on line within a few days. But it's likely that the tsunami has severely damaged the electrical grid, so it may be much longer before all the power lines can be repaired.

    Here is the full article:
    The impact of the earthquake that hit Japan this morning shifted the earth’s rotation axis is nearly 10 inches. It’s the preliminary result of studies carried out by INGV, National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology.

    IMPACT - The impact of this event on the axis of rotation, said INGV, was also much greater than that of the great Sumatra earthquake of 2004, which was 7 cm of linear and two thousandths of an arcsecond angle, and probably second only to Chile earthquake of 1960. The earthquake in Chile last year shifted the Earth’s axis of about 8 cm .
    http://www.earth-issues.com/2011/03/...ifted-10-cm-2/

    And I this this may be the same thing as Sasori's article, but I found this in the New York times site, posting it anyways:
    Japanese officials early Saturday expanded the area around a crippled nuclear power plant subject to emergency evacuation, as radiation levels inside the facility were reported to have surged and operators struggled to keep the plant’s cooling system operating on battery power.

    A kid from my school mentioned this to me this morning and right when I heard the news I had to go check google. Sad news. Hopefully the families can pull through a disaster like this.

    Last thing I heard, that nuclear reactor isn't doing too hot. But it seems to be relatively modern, so thankfully another Chernobyl-type scenario doesn't seem likely.
