Fukushima Worst Than 3 Mile Island Nuclear Reactor Meltdown

Fukushima nuclear plant has likely released more radioactivity than Three Mile Island and the crisis could last for several more weeks. The meltdown at Three Mile Island in 1979, which released about one million times less radiation, did not appear to impact cancer rates even decades later. Fukushima disaster is "worse than Three Mile Island but not as great as Chernobyl.

Three Mile Island Japan Earthquake Live

Three Mile Island, in the US, in 1979, and Chernobyl, in Ukraine, seven years later. You can think of the core of a Boiling Water Reactor (BWR). The light water reactor meltdown at Three Mile Island in 1979 resulted the release of radioactive gases in the most serious incident in the history of the US nuclear power industry.

Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant Explosion

An explosion occurred at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi power station north of Tokyo, destroying the walls of the No. 1 reactor. Radiation was leaking from an unstable nuclear reactor north of Tokyo on Saturday, the Japanese government said, after an explosion blew the roof off the facility following a massive earthquake.

Map Of California Tsunami Wave Threat

Map of  California currently shows California west coast under a tsunami warning, the most severe tsunami advisory. While massive 23-foot waves swept over Japan soon after the quake, now there is a California risk for seeing tsunami waves, as well as the energy dispersal from the quake itself.

Tsunami In Hawaii

A massive earthquake and tsunami in Japan and tsunami warnings for Hawaii and the US West Coast have people all over the world turning to the Internet and smartphone applications for disaster alerts.
Dozens of cities and villages in Japan's northern Miyagi, Aomori and Iwate prefectures have been devastated by the Japan tsunami. Towering waves tossed around fishing boats, cars and trucks like toys and sent them crashing into bridges and apartment blocks. Japan has been pounded by a massive tsunami after being, which was listed by the USGS as magnitude 8.9.

Low-lying Pacific islands are evacuating tens of thousands of people from vulnerable areas.
The largest waves are headed south-west at about 500mph to Japan and could cross the Pacific basin in 24 hours. There have been waves from four to seven metres high crashing into the Japanese coast.

If you are at home and hear there is a tsunami warning, you should make sure you entire family is aware of the warning. Your family should evacuate your house if you live in a tsunami evacuation. Move in an orderly, calm and safe manner to the evacuation site or to any safe place outside your evacuation zone. Follow the advice of local emergency and law enforcement authorities.
