An estimate by a Japanese government panel suggests that tsunami could overwhelm a new seawall at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, if a mega-quake occurs in a deep-sea trench off northeastern Japan.
The panel of experts on Tuesday released its projection of the scale of tsunami that could be triggered by a massive quake along the Japan Trench.
The panel expects that waves as high as 13.7 meters could hit Futaba Town, Fukushima Prefecture, where the plant is located.
That is higher than the 11-meter-high seawall being built on the ocean side of the compound. The wall is one of the anti-tsunami measures taken by Tokyo Electric Power Company as it decommissions the plant.
Other measures include blocking the openings of the reactor buildings and deploying power supply vehicles on higher ground to continue cooling spent nuclear fuel.
TEPCO says it will examine the estimate and consider what measures to take.
Nearly 1,000 tanks of radioactive wastewater are stored in the compound. The operator says the projected tsunami won’t reach the higher ground where they are located.
The suffering and pain
Chernobyl Three mile Fukushima
The nuclear bombs they detonated in Nevada on us, roar in my ears and brain
We who survive wonder why
The children on the cancer floor of the hospital
The pain of their life and death
the pain of their loved ones surrounds us
Voices of the departed and dying from the nuclear death, are all around us
there is little peace
There are fewer moments or memories that seem pleasant.
Day to day reality is rarely in the present
What we once viewed as sanity we now know is crazy
Death is sometimes more beckoning than life,
The common truths we all accepted are full of murderous deceit
the fraud and lies
the lies of the nuclear clowns and falsehoods of the filthy war profiteers are constantly defined by pain.
how can it be allowed to go on
