TEPCO Quietly Admits Reactor 3 Could Be Melting Down NOW

Susanne Posel (OC) ,The Turner Radio Network (TRN) has issued a report regarding the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant stating that it is expected to affect the entire Northern Hemisphere.

According to the report: “Persons residing on the west coast of North America should IMMEDIATELY begin preparing for another possible onslaught of dangerous atmospheric radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster site in Japan.”

TEPCO has confirmed via camera surveillance, that steam has begun to pour from Reactor 3, although they have “not been identified abnormal plant conditions.”

TEPCO is reporting that “radioactive steam has suddenly begun emanating from the previously exploded nuclear reactor building #3 at the Fukuishima disaster site in Japan.”

The corporation is not clear on the details of the sudden change at Reactor 3 because of “lethal radiation levels in that building.”

Summations from experts conclude that this may “be the beginning of a ‘spent fuel pool criticality (melt down)’ involving up to 89 TONS of nuclear fuel burning up into the atmosphere and heading to North America.” Steam has been viewed coming from Reactor 3.

Educated guesses suggest that the steam is “coming from what’s left of the fifth floor of the mostly-destroyed building.”

TEPCO has admitted that “they do not know why this steam is being generated, but matter-of-factly revealed on December 28 that the steam was first spotted on December 19 for a short period of time, then again on December 24 and again on December 25.”

The accord is that “pellets of radioactive fuel, ejected when the reactor exploded, went into the spent fuel pool located above the reactor and have begun melting down so seriously that they are boiling off the water in the spent fuel pool.”

Should this be the case “the situation could escalate rapidly out of control.”

TRN is warning of preparatory measures that should be taken by those living on the West Coast of America because after the “releasing 89 tons of deadly radioactive fuel directly into the air”, it would be a matter or 2 to 3 days before the deadly material would fry North America “by [the] levels of airborne radiation and ‘hot particles’ which could kill.”

Some of the recommendations to mitigate damaging effect of radiation exposure include:

• Keep up-to-date on developments via the Internet
• Buy Duct tape, masking tape and self-adhesive weather stripping
• Cover windows and doors with plastic
• Cover electrical outlets and light switches with plastic
• Cover vents in bathrooms and stoves with plastic
• Purchase a NIOSH N100-certified filter mask for each member of the family
• Purchase disposable TYVEK suit for going outside
• Wash obsessively

    You would think we would (west coast) be on a little bit higher state of alert already.

    • Dylan L says:

      It’s all censorship. Governments don’t want us knowing about this, therefore won’t tell us. Have you noticed that Fukushima was only on the news one time here in CA, and all they said was that the plant is leaking water into the ocean? Didn’t say how much water, or for how long…

      • Heather says:

        US Government is controlled by private transnational corporations, whose interests it serves. The only concern US Gov has is for the “Economy” of the wealthiest CEOs & BODs of the Corporate Empire. There are MANY reasons why Gov would never warn the people about the radiation. The sudden exodus of West Coast workers, abandonning their “posts” & becoming refugees is not something the Corrporate Entities would ever accept unless FORCED to. They certainly wouldn’t do anything to trigger it, or accelerate the inevitable.

      • Manny says:

        If this accident had happened in a “not so friendly country” as Japan, The EU, Canada and the U.S. would be pounding the table at the world stage demanding total transparency about what is happening. Funny world we are living now.

    • i live in gualala CA which is baisically the point of the west coast (near point arena;fort ross) and i didnt find out about this news untill i got curious and found this site.

  2. Carl Schmidt says:

    The government doesn’t want panic they will not say anything.

  3. Think they should rename it to FUCKUSHIMA.

  4. Tyler burley says:

    hundreds of tons of radioactive ground water has been leaking into the pacific ocean daily, since the incident begin. complacency will soon pay its price.

  5. John Ferman says:

    Two remarks. First, TEPCO should have been flooding the reactor core zone with boron-10 highly enriched water. B-10 has a high neutron crossection and so would help quench continued U-235 fission. Boron-10 enriched water is a standard safety feature in all older Boiling Water Reactors.
    Second, continued U-235 fission requires slow, thermal neutrons and water is highly effective in moderating neutrons. It would have made sense not to have injected water into the core area. Of course, core materials would have melted down BUT fission would cease and continued heat and fission products would cease. Of course, now over a year from the incident these two measures probably could not be implemented.

    • Mike says:

      Yah..good feedback…am 200 KM from Fukushima..thanks!!!

    • JollyD says:

      What they should have done is remove TEPCO from the equation. They’re cultural priority (conscious or unconscious) is to safe face and Culture will kill you before your biology does. The fact that they think they can remove several thousand fuel rods (unit 3) without any of them touching is insane (and while one or more meltdowns are taking place next door.
      Very serious situation

    • mike Jacques says:

      Dude,….I was just gonna say that!

    • David Small says:

      I agree with you about Boron. But might I also suggest Xenon-135? It has an incredible 3 million barns cross-sections, leaving anything else far behind.
      (Historically, xenon-135 “poisoning” shut down the first reactor at Hanford, 1944).
      I don’t know how much neutron fluence there is there, and I think TEPCO doesn’t know, either. The geometry of the core is probably weird.
      No one else seems to have noticed that radioactive sea water is very active — in the 1946 Crossroads test, the test ships were drenched in seawater, and were not recoverable short of sand-blasting all the paint off.
      Using sea water for coolent means there will be a spike in radiation. Fortunately, it doesn’t last very long.

      Good to see educated comments here.

      Thanks,
      Dave

      • Bryan Chin says:

        Unfortunately, Xe-135 Can’t be used because it’s only a byproduct of fission. It’s not only highly unstable, (half life of 9 hrs) it’s only produced in one place: Nuclear reactors. It would be very difficult to remove it and try to use it as an absorber.

        Boron in water works well to quench the nuclear reaction, as well as attenuate radiation. (Water is very effective at doing this. Maybe ten-15 feet of water will block a good 95%+ of emitted radiation, and water itself doesn’t become radioactive or unstable.) The risk is washing fuel or byproducts into the sea, which can be managed.

        Source: I’ve studied radiochemistry and work with a research reactor.

        Cheers!

    • Boron was added. Read the reports, there are numerous out there.

  6. Phil Nicols says:

    and yet they continue to push forward building more of these poison making machines! They need to ALL be BANNED and decommissioned! and building codes need to MANDATE builders to use solar / wind — NATURAL Energy!

    • Daniel says:

      Mind you, the TEPCO reactor was a Mark I design that they took shortcuts on, which resulted in this disaster. When properly built and maintained they are EXTREMELY safe.

  7. Jeff says:

    So does this affect Idaho? I live in Boise, which is close-ish to the west coast. I’m just wondering if I should prepare for this kinda stuff, cuz if it has even the slightest chance of coming here I’ll do what I can.

    • John Ferman says:

      If you have a means to access radioactive fallout data post August 1945 and the 1950s Pacific nuclear testing you be able to see how significant atmospheric transport from Japan might be. During those early post bomb and testing years, there were periodic and not infrequent Iodine-131 fallout warnings for northern Minnesota. The areas west of us would have received more fallout. You should ask your State officials to reactivate your State’s monitoring apparatus.

    • CinSP says:

      We are in Sandpoint. We are getting prepared.

      Don’t forget to get potassium iodide.

    • dave says:

      Better safe than sorry jeff. I wouldnt take any risks. Period!!!!!!

    • This affects the whole plant! Please do a little more reading about the (Half life)of what has been being spilled into the ocean and air.Boise! REALLY?

    • eric says:

      To Idaho and Washington, yes it will affect you and your state. The question is to what extent.radiation has been detected in snow fall all over the country. Whether the affect is life threatening to your area or not one thing is for sure. If the west coast gets “fried” there will be an mass exodus (enmass) to other parts of this country. Californias population is roughly fourth million people. Oregon must me around ten million and I would assume Washington is close to the same.
      No matter what. Just a few million displaced would strain the resources of the rest of the country. Add to that California is the largest food producer in the world. Makes for a bad day.

      • Lola says:

        California is THE most populous state in the union, with 38 million people, Washington adds about 7 million, Oregon another 4 million, plus the Idaho panhandle… That would mean one sixth of the US population at risk for becoming refugees. This article does overstate the danger of getting ‘fried’ but serious ecological pollution across the Pacific and a doubtless increase in health issues. Factor into that the effect on the extensive agriculture and food production from these three states- the entire US and all of our economic dependents are at serious risk.

    • Sam Mecham says:

      Jeff, the answer is yes to the chance of it coming to Boise. That DOES NOT mean it is going to though. The solution is to be prepared. If you wait until the event happens and then try to prepare it will be too late. It is very cheap to make preparations. At least preparations for this type of emergency. There is an extremely small chance it could get so bad there is nothing you or anyone else could do about it. Then you just let fate take over. I have no fear of that happening. I worry more about the problem of large groups of people fleeing CA,ORE,WA, in the winter time. That would be a bigger disaster than the fallout.

  8. love is important says:

    “”"http://www.radiationnetwork.com”"”

    It affects the whole world. People dissing Japan should remember Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Karma is a bitch.

  9. Where can i get current information? I live in Eastern Washington is this pertinent to my home? Thank you.

    • juice says:

      You live near Hanford…that’s your bigger concern…

      • cheryl says:

        I was raised in W.Richland but live in AZ. I am concerned about this issue. Since it is going to effect so many and not much can be done, I am betting that the government will underplay the side effects, deal with the illnesses as they occur, and blow it off.

  10. I was a Chemical, Biological and Radiological warfare officer in the military and can testify to the seriousness of this fallout. I would certainly hate to see people on the west coast walking around in Mopp4 gear. The above recommendations are good for simple survival, but unfortunately panic in the streets/stores etc. will be a major concern along with protecting your home and families. Get a head of the masses and start stocking up on can goods, water and essentials. If nothing ever happens, you can always use it later. Of course here in Nevada Harry Reid and his family will hide out in Yucca Mountain with all the comforts of home.

  11. Katherine says:

    More info needed. How long would precautions need to be in place. Can a person REALLY safeguard against such a widespead and ongoing contamination.
    Bastards.

  12. Sandy says:

    The government(s) know what will happen if they let the populace in on what is happening. We can never be free of the crap that is pouring into our air and water.
    Vancouver Island and other parts of the West Coast are already getting stuff floating on our coast from that disaster, with more coming every day.
    What can we do to make people more aware of it??? Go to the media with PROOF!!

  13. john domoe says:

    It is simply this: They are not going to do anything about it , because they don’t know what to do about it……………

    • Terry T says:

      Maybe people dont realize it. There is no where to run for harry reid or any of us. That is what people need to understand. We are all in this together and sadly as of right now there is no known solution to Fukushima. This is not something tiny like and oil spill. Nuclear particles will keep on giving and giving for well beyond our lifetimes.

  14. joe doakes says:

    put a friggin dome over it, keep pouring concrete on it until there is a mountain of concrete over it, geebus, do something!

  15. Charlie says:

    My son is stationed in Japan….how come they’re not getting the military out of there?

  16. Dan says:

    When they can properly despose of the waste, then people can call it safe.

  17. Juice says:

    What they’re not telling you is this is a MOX (Plutonium/uranium mix) fuel reactor. One mg of MOX is basically two million times more powerful than one mg of uranium.The half life of MOX is 24,000 years. Surprising they are playing this down as a non-issue. This is a VERY serious isue….VERY SERIOUS.

  18. JBBX says:

    Isn’t it awesome that we even have to worry about this sort of crap? I live right on the coast of California and I have NO means to obtain “protective gear” so, I suppose me and my family will just die. Way to go world governments. Thanks for destroying our planet, our environment, our safety and our lives. Must be nice to not give a damn. Mean while a lot of us are just struggling to make it day to day, work hard and feed our children but, I guess none of that matters if we are all just gonna die from radiation poisoning anyhow. What the hell do they think they need stupid crap like that for anyhow. This whole world is F*%#.

  19. nsnbc says:

    Editorial note: This article was first published 30 December. It was intermediately removed on 3 January for two reasons. 1) A malicious attempt to overload our servers 2) A large number of readers who appeared to panic because they read the article as if there was a meltdown in progress. The headline is rather clear on that point already, it “could” start melting down “now”.

    We find the article important because it elicits the point that another meltdown, besides the three which already happened, could happen at any time. That includes, for the time being, the risk of a spent fuel rod meltdown. As Dr. Michiu Kaku, nuclear physicist said, “TEPCO is hanging over the cliff by its fingernails”. We agree that unprecedented risks, warrant unprecedented precautions.

    We uploaded the article again on 4 January, and will eventually have to remove it “intermediately” again, if the overload proceeds. Christof Lehmann. Editor, nsnbc international.

  20. Tony says:

    There is nothing new. The meltdown IS in progress from the start, nothing stopped the meltdown, it is unknown where and in what condition the cores are, but steam from building 3 is present FROM the beginning and radiation on site in groundwater water is constantly rising from which we can conclude groundwater water is in touch with the corium. It is not a new melt down it is a continuous meltdown.

  21. Hi all. What about Europe? I live in Milan, Italy. Do you think fallout will be effective here?
    Regards, Luca

  22. Lou says:

    I’m near San Francisco, I think we should prepare and plan as much as possible. As far as evacuation, how for is safe? I don’t think there is a safe distance anymore. Just buying time. The magnitude of Fukushima is so devastatingly monumental, yet the majority of people don’t seem to know it even exists. I don’t understand how that can be…

  23. One would think that our government and others would step in and get a better grip on this situation. Get together experts from around the world and at least make an effort. Total silence from the United States scares the hell out of me. We are always “fixing” the world’s problems and stand silent facing this !

  24. Peggy Fearing Hankin says:

    Nuclear Reactors have contaminated earth with deadly sewage that cannot be washed off and removed. Our ocean is now contaminated with this disgusting radioactive sludge of free roaming radio active particles. This is not oil that sinks to the bottom. What stupidity of the Americans to believe that bull crap. I can’t believe all of the time and money spent at war in the Middle East when the biggest killer is now Fukushima and it’s waste. We cannot afford to lose our Ocean! Without the Ocean and the Sea Life we will all die. The earth will die. NoWe need to illuminate those damn to hell Nuke Plants. Where is the White House on this issue? All those bastards are just buying time instead of providing HONEST INFORMATION- EMERGENCY SUPPLIES , MEDICAL PROVISIONS. And Scientific Clean Up! Who is the US Organizing to deal with this floating Crisis?

  25. Alex says:

    You would think that we would have some safe solution to this matter by now, especially because it’s been decades since humans have learned to harness nuclear power. Why would you build a massive plant and have no plan for action if it were to melt down? Did they not ever hear of Chernobyl?

  26. Alex says:

    I like Joe Doakes plan: put a dome over it and cover with giga-tons of concrete. “Mt. Fujishima”

  27. Ned Childs says:

    General Electric Company insisted on pushing through the Mark One Series of Boiling Water Reactors … in the face of clear evidence they would explode and melt down in a Loss Of Cooling Accident (LOCA.) And they hid behind the slogan “We bring good things to life.” This criminal organization runs the US government. They should be liquidated immediately, the funds used to mitigate this nuclear disaster. A Nazi victory in Europe would have proved a better outcome than these nuclear crimes. peace …

  28. M.C. Fancher says:

    amazing that not one comment mentioned that the possibility of another earthquake and how it would change the dynamics of this horrific situation. Of course, there will be more earthquakes. Everybody seems to think that there was only one quake ever in Japan.
