JAPAN -Alarm over atomic Crisis-march 16

  1. 2. Over the days of the Fukushima crisis, attention has switched from reactor building 1 to 3, to 2, back to 3 - and now, to 4. Here, it is not the actual reactor that is causing concern. Instead, it is a pool storing fuel rods that had been taken out of the reactor when it was shut down for maintenance before the earthquake struck. There have been reports that water levels were low; and now the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), which has a team of experts advising in Japan, says the pool is completely dry. This means the fuel rods are exposed to the air. Without water, they will get much hotter, allowing radioactive material to escape - and the NRC says radiation levels are probably extremely high, creating a danger to workers at the plant. The company operating the plant has even warned of "re-criticality" - that a nuclear chain reaction could start among fuel rods in the now dry pool. That would not cause a nuclear explosion but it would increase the release of radioactive substances. Fukushima Daiichi: What went wrong * Reactor 1: Was first to be rocked an explosion on Saturday; fuel rods reportedly 70% damaged * Reactor 2: There are fears a blast on Tuesday breached a containment system; fuel rods reportedly 33% damaged * Reactor 3: Explosion on Monday; smoke or steam seen rising on Wednesday; damage to roof and possibly also to a containment system * Reactor 4: Hit by a major blaze on Tuesday and another fire on Wednesday JAPAN 2011-MARCH 16 – alarm over Japan atomic crisis About 450,000 people have been staying in temporary shelters, many sleeping on the floor of school gymnasiums. More than 4,300 people are listed as dead but it is feared the total death toll from the catastrophe, which pulverised the country's north-east coast, will rise substantially.
  2. 3. Emperor Akihito went on live TV on Wednesday to make his first public comments on the disaster, and urged an all-out rescue effort. TV stations interrupted programming to show the emperor describing the crisis facing the nation as "unprecedented in scale". The 77-year-old - deeply respected by many Japanese - said: "I hope from the bottom of my heart that the people will, hand in hand, treat each other with compassion and overcome these difficult times." - he said he was praying for the people's safety, and expressed his deep concern about the escalating nuclear crisis.
  3. 4. People watch a television broadcasting Japan's Emperor Akihito's televised address to the nation at an electronics retail store in Tokyo March 16. Japanese Emperor Akihito said on Wednesday that problems at Japan's nuclear-power reactors were unpredictable and he was "deeply worried" following an earthquake he described as "unprecedented in scale". It was an extraordinarily rare appearance by the emperor and his first public comments since last week's devastating earthquake and tsunami that killed thousands of people. (Issei Kato/Reuters)

President of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Tadateru Konoe (C) walks among rescue workers searching through rubble in a residential area of tsunami-hit Otsuchi March 14, 2011. After my long career in the Red Cross where I have seen many disasters and catastrophes, this is the worst I have ever seen. Otsuchi reminds me of Osaka and Tokyo after the Second World War when everything was destroyed and flattened, Tadateru Konoe told Reuters during a visit to the coastal town. In the town of Otsuchi in Iwate prefecture, 12,000 out of a population of 15,000 have disappeared following Friday's massive earthquake and tsunami. REUTERS/Damir Sagolj
