The situation at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has been changing rapidly and growing increasingly complex since the earthquake and tsunami hit on March 11. Problems began that day, and each day has brought new, unsettling developments. Growing concerns about radiation add to the overwhelming chain of disasters Japan has struggled with since the 9.0-magnitude quake. The news media has covered this 24/7 and almost everyone has an opinion as to the severity of the situation. Many websites are tracking the status of 6 reactors there. Traces of radiation are turning up well beyond the leaking Fukushima Dai-ichi plant after cooling systems to its six reactors were knocked out by the massive quake and tsunami. Radiation has seeped into the food supply, with spinach and milk from as far as 75 miles showing levels of iodine in excess of safety limits, although officials said they posed no immediate health hazard.
On March 11 at 2:46pm JST a massive 9.0-magnitude earthquake occurred near the northeastern coast of Japan, creating extremely destructive tsunami waves which hit Japan just minutes after the earthquake, and triggering evacuations and warnings across the Pacific Ocean. The earthquake and tsunami have caused extensive and severe damage in Northeastern Japan, leaving thousands of people confirmed dead, injured or missing, and millions more affected by lack of electricity, water and transportation.
Haiti: As of March 9 and since the outbreak began last October, there have been 258,084 Cholera cases, 138,946 Cholera hospitalizations, and 4,717 Cholera deaths. And some researchers are predicting that the number of Cholera cases by next November is likely to be double the UN forecast: 800,000, close to 10 percent of the country’s population.
Now that Cholera is a nationwide epidemic in Haiti, studies show that clean water and hygiene education measures are likely to be more effective at reducing Cholera’s residual progression in the country than a vaccination campaign. See http://scienceblogs.com/thepumphandle/2011/02/clean_water_and_education_coul.php
In the 11 weeks since the Cholera epidemic erupted in Haiti, there have been 140,000 reported cases leaving more than 3,000 dead. Read the CNN Haiti Cholera Story to better understand what is happening there.
Our Business-Related Events
For submitting CHB, Partner, and Client business event or “topic of interest” announcements, comments, and suggestions.
Primarily intended for submitting information on “greenfield” solutions and tracking emerging technologies for preparedness, relief response, water / waste / toxic clean-up, and sustainable development.
For worldwide (natural and/or manmade) disaster event notification and response efforts, comments, and suggestions.
EPA MONITORING - As a result of the incident with the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan, several EPA air monitors have detected very low levels of radioactive material in the United States consistent with estimated releases from the damaged nuclear reactors. EPA has stepped up monitoring of precipitation, milk, and drinking water in response to the Fukushima events.
RADIATION / THREAT MAP - Americans for Radiation Safety is an organization formed by a group of concerned citizens who believe that Americans deserve to be protected. Some Americans support nuclear power. Others oppose it. Their objective is simple – full implementation of the policies recommended by the National Academy of Sciences. They and CHB agree that we should locally stockpile KI throughout the country so it can be accessed immediately in case of an emergency. Their posted threat map where one can insert a zip code for local information is compelling.
