You will recall the blather early on about needing to change "Fukushima I and Fukushima II" to "Daiichi and Daini"... and then not hearing anything about Daini after the first couple days. Well:
Smoke was spotted at another nuclear plant in northeastern Japan on Wednesday, Tokyo Electric Power Co. said.

The company said smoke was detected in the turbine building of reactor No. 1 at the Fukushima Daini nuclear power plant around 6 p.m.

Smoke could no longer be seen by around 7 p.m., a company spokesman told reporters.

The Fukushima Daini nuclear power plant is about 6 miles from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, where workers have been scrambling to stave off a meltdown since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami knocked out cooling systems there.

After the dual disasters, Japanese authorities also detected cooling-system problems at the Fukushima Daini plant, and those living within a 10-kilometer radius (6 miles) of Fukushima Daini were ordered to evacuate as a precaution.
Maybe they should try the Chernobyl Option on the entire prefecture?

  1. The report I saw said the fire was in an electrical distribution panel in the turbine building.

    Of course I can't find that article now, but this one also puts it in the turbine building.

  2. Yes. I left that out because I don't believe them. I don't know if it's true or if it's true that it doesn't also mean radioactive or potentially radioactive. I try to strip out as much mitigating "info" as possible, and would also strip out exacerbating "info" if they ever put it in, but there is a blatant drive to mitigate almost everywhere one looks, ESPECIALLY the MSM, so I try not to take it into account or perpetuate it. I figure people can go to the link if they want that part.

  3. I mean, they tend to mix up smoke and steam regularly, and continually mention facts not in evidence, or things that may not be facts at all. So I try to cut to the bottom line as much as feasible at any given moment. The fact of smoke coming from anywhere at any nuke plant, let alone the one so near Daiichi, is reason to sit up and take note.

  4. No, wait, I didn't strip it ALL out. It's right up there big as heck. I stripped out the OTHER mitigating language... a repetition. Now yer getting ME confused. That's too damn easily done these days, dear.

  5. You threw me off with the electrical panel part. I saw that somewhere too and didn't go for it because of the reasons specified. I think it might've been in the CNN video I opted not to post.

    I gotta go find some FOOD or this is liable to get worse. Coffee cannot do the WHOLE job.

  6. I'm gobbling it this very moment!
