Japan Earthquake-Tsunami

One year has passed since the tragedies of March 11 in Japan.  Though 366 days have passed, the horrors of that day persist, and probably will for decades. The Japan Earthquake-Tsunami has immediate impacts on the people of the country, but as work continues to clean up the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, it has become obvious that the contamination… read more

In the time that has passed since the March 11 tragedy, I have followed all of the news… read more

Typhoon Roke is headed towards Fukushima, Japan, and in turn the heavily damaged Fukushima Dia-Ichi nuclear plant. Packing winds of 144 kilometers per hour (89 MPH), with gusts of 216 kilometers per hour (134 MPH), Roke is making landfall near Tokyo and then working its way towards Fukushima.  The town, and its accompanying nuclear plant, were… read more

I continue to find interesting videos of the  Japan Earthquake-Tsunami of March 11, but this may be one of the scariest yet. While there have been some shocking videos of the event to be sure, this one was filmed from inside a car in Sendai City as the earthquake happened and the tsunami water poured into the… read more

Ever since the Japan Earthquake-Tsunami of March 11, Tokyo Electric Power company (TEPCO) has remained rather quiet about how things are going at the Fukushima Daiichi plant. The Japanese are not known for their desire to lose “face”, so to make admissions of fault sometimes take longer than we’re used to here in the West, but… read more

While aftershocks are to expected in the wake of a major quake, to be having ones that register 6.0 on the scale five months later has to be a bit unnerving. News came this evening that the Fukushima region was rocked by another major aftershock to the Japan Earthquake-Tsunami of March 11.  Luckily no tsunami warnings were issued… read more

In a completely unsurprising announcement, the people of Japan are overwhelmingly calling for an end to the use of nuclear power in their country. A recent poll conducted by the Kyodo news agency indicated that 70.3 percent of the population wants to see the use of nuclear power in Japan come to an end in… read more

Tokyo Electric Power company (TEPCO) has  confirmed that a new water filtration system put in place at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant failed after only five hours of use.  It was originally estimated to have been workable for up to a month. After the Japan Earthquake-Tsunami back on March 11th, TEPCO has had to pump water continuously onto the… read more

Tokyo Electric Power company (TEPCO) has now confirmed that the No. 1 reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant partially melted down in the days following the Japan Earthquake-Tsunami. While Tepco suspected there may have been a melt down, nothing was confirmed until this week when a camera was finally able to reach the bottom… read more

Yet another video of the tsunami resulting from the Japan Earthquake-Tsunami may be one of the must gut wrenching yet. This particular video is labeled as “South Sanriku — Tsunami seen from Shizugawa High School” and may be one of the hardest to watch yet.  Up until now I would have given that credit to… read more

The crisis at the Fukushima nuclear plant resulting from the March 2011 Japan Earthquake-Tsunami has been raised to a level 7 on the nuclear crisis scale, the highest it can go. Despite numerous attempts to try to gain control over the crisis at the Fukushima nuclear reactor, things have continued to not improve.  With the assignment… read more

Aftershocks are to be expected to last in Japan in the wake of the March 11th Japan Earthquake-Tsunami for up to a year, but I don’t think anyone was expecting them to be around a 7.4 up to almost a month later. Japan was struck with a massive 7.4 aftershock today 61 miles east of… read more
