The government will expand evacuation districts near the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, its top spokesman said Monday.

With the crisis at the plant dragging on, some municipalities within a 20- to 30-kilometer radius of the power plant will now be designated as additional evacuation areas, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said at a news conference.

Japan raises nuke accident severity level to highest 7 from 5
TOKYO, April 12, Kyodo

Japan on Tuesday raised the severity level of the accident at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant to the maximum 7 on an international scale, up from the current 5 and matching that of the 1986 Chernobyl catastrophe.

The previous evaluation of 5 on the International Nuclear Event Scale provisionally set by the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, a body under the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, was at the same level as the Three Mile Island accident in the United States in 1979.

While raising the level for the accident, the agency said, however, that the amount of radioactive materials released into the external environment from the nuke plant is estimated to be about 10 percent of the amount released in the Chernobyl catastrophe.

But the agency said the volume of radiation from Fukushima is one-tenth that at Chernobyl.

The agency said its calculations show that 370-thousand terabecquerels of radioactive iodine 131 and cesium 137 have been released from the plant.

The nuclear safety commission, in a joint press conference with the agency, put the estimated leak at 630-thousand terabecquerels of both substances.

Nuclear Power Fears at New Heights Despite Safety, Viability

“The Fukushima meltdown may mark a high point in anti-nuclear hysteria,” said John Downs of Euro Pacific Capital, in a note to clients Monday. “As a result, investors should not treat nuclear-related stocks as if they were radioactive. Eventually, reason prevails, and the truth is that nuclear power is hands down the best option available for powering the 21st century.”

Advisory to US West Coast Citizens: Stay indoors as much as possible to reduce your exposure to radiation for April 12th and April 13th. Try to avoid the rain at all costs.

incredibly ironic and such but I found this on ot.fi 15.gif

Quote:Enligt bolaget har strålningsutsläppet inte upphört, och man befarar nu att utsläppen till slut kommer att bli STÖRRE ÄN TJERNOBYL.


Translated into non-Jibberish that would be something like:

"According to the company (TEPCO I assume) the radiation leak has not been stopped and they now fear it will be BIGGER THAN CHERNOBYL!

Jobs at Fukushima plant: 10000 yen an hour
About $115/hr


Says only 3 hrs/day paid but you're still at the work site for 8, and the working conditions aren't great LOL! Truck drivers here make that much (in a day). Hours are longer but you don't get a coffin in lieu of pension.
