Reading this was very humbling imsad. Workers who are battling to save Fukushima nuclear plant for the sake of fellow citizens, knowing the high levels of radiation that they are exposing themselves to.


May Allah (Swt) grant them mercy and easy their suffering.

Indeed. You can only admire their courage and sense of duty. At least we can be thankful that they are properly equipped and doing every possible to reduce the risk, unlike the poor 'bio-robots' of Chernobyl. imsad

Shaking land, water moves into land at jet speed, fire in the middle, radiation in the air, ... What left? :( Nature marching with a goal..to act upon the command it has received.
Ya Allah please guide the affected to peace.

Punted this as, sadly, another earthquake (mag 7.4) has just been reported in the same area, and tsunami warning issued. This one will hopefully be a lot smaller, but with reactor buildings already damaged we can only hope and pray it doesn't hit them . imsad

Punted again, as the Japanese have just raised their assessment of the Fukushima incident to the highest level of 'major accident'. The only such incident previously was Chernobyl.

You do wonder how much people are being told, and when, in this instance. The rise is from a level '5' to a level '7' but, as with earthquakes the nuclear events scale is a logarithmic one, that is each increase represents an accident ten times as bad as the level below.

According to the BBC

However, a nuclear safety agency spokesman told reporters the leaks were still small compared to those at the plant in Ukraine, then part of the Soviet Union.

"In terms of volume of radioactive materials released, our estimate shows it is about 10% of what was released by Chernobyl," he said.
"Still small", maybe, but even 10% of the radioactivity released at Chernobyl is vastly more than has been suggested previously in regard of Fukushima. And, of course, Japan is far more densely populated than the equivalent area around Chernobyl. imsad
