They've also just expanded the evacuation zone from 3 kms to 10 kms around the plant.

I'm no expert but just judging by the lack of information, the urgency and public buzz about this, it seems to be that it could be very serious. Then again, I'm just speculating.

Sorry to hear that buddy. Hoping all the best for you; phone lines have still been pretty jammed today so that could be why you can't get through. Not to mention that a lot of people have left their homes to stay at friends places in safer places so many people can't get through to people on landlines either.

to cross the ocean wouldn't the particles have to be in the upper atmosphere to make it into the jet stream? and if that's true there is no guarantee on the amount that will make it to upper atmosphere especially when there hasnt been a meltdown yet

FINALLY. a decent explanation. No one seemed to have an answer to the "jetstream" theory

im not sure if what i said is correct or not so id like clarification. even then the plant seems to be in a low lying area as well so that would affect the chance of less getting into the upper atmosphere too?

Did anyone else watch Battle LA today? And did you find it a coincidence that the "meteor" aleins landed on earth at 14:46, 24 hour clock is 2:46 PM....

Same time the Local time was for Japan Earthquake.

this is the wave making it's way into San Francisco bay area, so I guess we had something slightly bigger than this hit the beaches of Vancouver island... nothing dangerous, but still pretty crazy how far it travels
