Another powerful earthquake in Japan's Niigata
Another earthquake of magnitude 6.6 recorded on Friday at 22:00 Moscow time in Niigata prefecture, which is located in the north-west coast of Japan, on the opposite side of the Miyagi prefecture, where earlier on Friday, a devastating earthquake followed by a tsunami.
According to preliminary data, the Japanese broadcasting company NBC NHK, warning of the possibility of a tsunami as had been circulated, "Interfax".
The situation in the nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture in Japan on o.Honsyu worsens
The situation at the nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture in Japanese o.Honsyu worsens, RBC reports referring to the Associated Press.
As representatives of the authorities of the country, is scheduled to release radioactive vapors to reduce pressure inside the main reactor. They noted that engineers continue attempts to improve the cooling system was damaged in the earthquake.
Nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture is one of the largest in the world.
Earlier, it was reported that at a nuclear power plant (NPP) in Japan started a fire. It is reported that as a result of today's earthquake in Onagawa (Miyagi Prefecture) lit plant, owned by Tohoku Elec's.
The accident at the Japanese nuclear power plant threatens to turn into a nightmare
British nuclear physicist Walt Patterson said that the nuclear power plant in Fukushima is in an extremely dangerous condition, "Interfax"
"If it is not resolved in the next few hours, the case will result in seriously," — said the scientist told the BBC. According to him, "if the damaged cores, the fuel rods could become hot and melt, and this is the worst nightmare for any nuclear physicist."
As the "News", the radiation level inside the building, where one of the reactors, "Fukushima", continues to grow. The earthquake collapsed the turbine hall, a fire broke out, which led to an increase in the concentration of hot gas in the work area. To "create a serious situation. Or hot steam can hold special protective areas, or he will break out, "- said one of the experts.
Rospotrebnadzor Sakhalin, Kamchatka, Magadan Oblast, Primorsky and Khabarovsk edges instructed to increase oversight of radiation safety.
From the area near the Japanese nuclear power plant declared evacuation
General Secretary of the Government of Japan, Yukio Edano announced the evacuation of people who live in the range of 3 to 10 kilometers from the plant, which is located in the prefecture of Fukushima.
Because of the devastating earthquake at the plant was interrupted electricity needed to cool the reactor. At the station, declared an emergency.
Edano said no radiation leaks, but it should "be ready for the worst development of the situation. According to experts, if the reactor has cooled, could leak radiation, RIA "Novosti".

Professionals will play off gas from the reactor Fukushima nuclear power plant on Saturday
Japanese scientists are going on Saturday morning to begin grazing of containment (containment) of the first block of the reactor at a nuclear power plant in the Japanese prefecture of Fukushima radioactive gas produced during nuclear reactions, said Friday the agency Kyodo.
Bleeding gas is needed to reduce the pressure inside the reactor.
At nuclear power plants in Fukushima because of what happened on Friday earthquake interrupted power supply and because of disrupted reactor cooling. At the station, declared an emergency. General Secretary of the Government of Japan, Yukio Edano said the radiation leak is not, however, "must be prepared for the worst development of the situation." Announced evacuation of people living within a radius of 3 to 10 kilometers from the plant.
Later the Tokyo Power Company (Tokyo Electric Power Company, TEPCO) reported increased levels of radiation in the building of nuclear power plants. According to TEPCO, raising the level of radiation found in the turbine building of the first reactor plant.
One of the strongest earthquakes in recent years happened off the coast of Miyagi Prefecture, 373 kilometers northeast of Tokyo. Magnitude of 8.9. Hearth lies at a depth of 24 kilometers. Soon, in the same area several more powerful aftershocks with magnitude above 6.0, the epicenter of one of them was just 67 km from Tokyo. The magnitude of the strongest aftershock of 7.1. According to recent reports, the victims of disaster were about 135 people, about 500 people are still missing.
Immediately after the earthquake began to receive information on emergency stops at several Japanese nuclear power plants. In particular, the Onagawa nuclear power plant in Miyagi prefecture triggered alarm protection system, which stopped the work of one of the units. Shortly after the incident, Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan said that radiation leaks at nuclear power plants in Japan, the earthquake did not happen. Later, the media reported that in the turbine hall of the plant caught fire. According to preliminary information, the incident did not result in the release of radiation. Involved in fire fighting troops of the Japanese Self-Defense.

The unit Fukushima Daiichi-1 will play off to atmosphere RSF
Staff block № 1 nuclear power plant "Fukushima Daiichi» (Fukushima Daiichi) in Japan will attempt to play off the atmosphere RSF, creating pressure under the reactor vessel.
The operation will be followed by the release of a particular activity.
Earlier in the turbine hall of the first block was recorded increase in radiation. Quantitative data, the operating organization does not.
The pressure inside the reactor vessel of the first unit in the project now exceeds half.
The Japanese media have reported that the owners of the station — the company TEPCO — fear rupture of the reactor vessel of the first unit. In the company does not comment on the allegations.
As reported by reliable sources, to avoid damage to the body, "Fukushima Daiichi-1" by no means impossible, as the radiological consequences of such an accident can be quite severe.
As previously reported, the "CPS" in connection with an emergency stop of a number of Japanese nuclear power plants ordered the territorial departments and service centers of Hygiene and Epidemiology of the Far Eastern region of Russia to strengthen the supervision of radiation safety of the population.
Japan turned to the UN
Japan's Foreign Ministry asked the UN to send international search and rescue teams, the press secretary of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) Elizabeth Beers.
"So far it is only the four teams from the USA, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea", — quotes Beers ITAR-TASS.
Beers suggested that the selection of teams was made on a geographical basis, because of these countries' most quickly get to Japan. "
OCHA spokeswoman could not tell, nor in any rescue operations will be involved or specify their number. "But I guess that's just the beginning," — she said.
Beers stressed that the UN is ready to provide all necessary assistance to Japan, saying that at the moment in a state of readiness has 68 search-and-rescue teams from 45 countries.
In Japan, the dam burst: a huge mass of water washed away thousands of homes
In Fukushima Prefecture, in eastern Japan collapsed dam. The huge mass of water washed at home with people located there, reports Reuters.
According to the Minister of Defense of Japan, as a result of the incident destroyed about 1,800 homes. However, it is not known how many people at that time were men.
It is located in the Fukushima nuclear power plant, which, after an earthquake, a big problem. It denied the cooling system of the reactor, and then began the evacuation of inhabitants of nearby communities.
According to recent information, the situation at the plant under control.
New tremors. The head of the Japanese government urged people to move away from a nuclear reactor to 10 kilometers
Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan called on all those who live in the area affected by the earthquake, a nuclear reactor in Fokushima away from the plant for at least 10 kilometers in connection with another radioactive release, scheduled for the near future. Meanwhile, rescuers are searching for is no longer two, but four trains disappeared without trace after the dam.
As the number of online media, the need for additional release said Atomic Energy Agency, Japan. According to the representative of the agency, fire and nuclear experts involved daunting damaged reactor will have to play off of the steam into the atmosphere in one of the cooling circuit to reduce the pressure in it. This steam is radioactive.
Recall that one very powerful emission of radioactive steam took two hours ago, but agency officials said that this radioactive steam is not of great danger, and that it does not go to the nuclear disaster. However, they recognized that the temperature in one of the units is continuously increasing. Around 3,000 people were evacuated from the area adjacent to the reactor.
Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of inhabitants of the cities, despite the fear of radiation, spent the night outdoors, because they were afraid of aftershocks. It is expected that the number of dead will be counted in the thousands. Nothing is known about the fate of the missing passengers of four trains, and dozens of sea and river vessels, flooded houses. Railway traffic in the affected region of Japan is completely paralyzed. The Israeli embassy has not yet been able to identify the location of 20 Israelis and to contact them.
At midnight, it was reported in Niigata earthquake intensity of 6.7 on the Richter scale. Additional information about the victims yet.

Radiation levels at the plant in Japan has exceeded the norm in 1000
Experts of the Tokyo Electric Power Company did not exclude the possibility that a nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture in Japanese o.Honsyu already could leak radiation. It is reported by the BBC on-Sea.
Radiation levels in the reactor exceeds the permitted limit is a thousand times.
Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan announced the evacuation of all residents within 10 km around the plant. We are talking about approximately 45 thousand people.
Experts of the Tokyo Electric Power Company lost control over pressure in reactors 1, 2 and 3 at the nuclear power plant in Fukushima. Declared a state of emergency.
Earlier it was reported that the situation at the plant in Fukushima worsens. Experts are trying to gradually release radioactive vapors to reduce pressure inside the reactor. Engineers continue attempts to improve the cooling system was damaged in the earthquake.
Nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture is one of the largest in the world.
Japan yesterday morning shook several powerful aftershocks, the strongest earthquake of magnitude of 8.9 (according to the U.S. Geological Survey, USGS).
According to calculations of the Japanese Meteorological Service, the magnitude of the earthquake was equal to 8.8. The epicenter of tremors was located off the east coast of the main Japanese island of Honshu, 130 km east of g.Senday, 373 kilometers north-east of Tokyo.
The cooling system of reactors, "Fukushima-2" has malfunctioned
In a nuclear power plant "Fukushima-2", which is located 11.5 km south of the "Fukushima-1" has failed cooling system of three nuclear reactors.
According to the Tokyo Electric Power Company, the radiation level at a nuclear reactor, "Fukushima-1" exceeds the norm by a thousand times.
Within a radius of 10 kilometers to evacuate the local population, according to ITAR-TASS.
According to recent reports, the victims of the terrible earthquake and tsunami were more than 370 people, nearly 600 missing.
According to unofficial data, the control of the pressure in the nuclear reactors at the plant in Fukushima Prefecture lost.
According to unofficial data, the specialists of Japanese power company lost control over pressure in nuclear reactors
1 and 2 nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture on o.Honsyu. As the channel MSNBC, growth pressures continue to increase.
Japan saved more than 80 people on board a passenger vessel in the sea.
In Japan, rescued 81 people who were on board a passenger ship, which the tsunami swept into the sea. On the state of the people is not reported. As the representatives of the authorities, were involved in the rescue operation Navy and Coast Guard helicopters, reports BBC BBC referring to the Japanese media.
Recall, before it was reported that as a result of the tsunami that struck Japan after a powerful earthquake, passenger ship swept out to sea.
A series of powerful earthquakes in Japan occurred 206 outbreaks of fires in 12 prefectures
According to the Japanese agency for fighting fires and natural disasters, resulting in a series of powerful earthquakes in the country has developed a fire, it is 206 in 12 prefectures. The largest number of fires recorded in Miyagi prefecture, where a fire broke out on the particular nuclear power station, TV channel NHK. In g.Senday about 600 people were forced to climb to the roof of the school to be saved from the fire, at another school sought refuge from the fire 300.
Nuclear fuel melted at the plant "Fukushima-1"
Radioactive cesium was found near the first unit of NPP "Fukushima-1" in Japan, which means, apparently, that the melted fuel in the reactor core, with reference to experts working on cooling the reactor, the Kyodo news agency reported.
According to specialists, melted metal sheaths that protect the reactor cores. This suggests that the temperature inside the reactor can reach 1.2 thousand degrees.
Experts believe that the emergence of cesium indicates the decay of uranium. At the same time, experts believe that the main part of the fuel remains in the reactor. Radioactive substances detected near the reactor, but a radiation leak outside plant has not happened.
Of the ten-zone around the plant were evacuated residents.
After the earthquake, the reactor was stopped, it stopped to take water needed for cooling. The water level has gone down, resulting in the reactor cores appeared above the surface. Presumably, the melted fuel in this part. All night in the cooling of the reactor attempted to download large amounts of water to maintain the water level. Apparently, these works have not been successful.
One of the strongest earthquakes in recent years happened off the coast of Miyagi Prefecture, 373 kilometers northeast of Tokyo. Magnitude of 8.9. The earthquake caused a great tsunami in parts of the height of the tidal wave was more than ten meters. More than one thousand people dead and missing.

The NPP "Fukushima-1" began an uncontrolled nuclear chain reaction
To earthquake victims of Japanese nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1" could have been a partial sintering of the fuel in the central part of a nuclear reactor number one, said on Saturday the ministry of economy and industry.
The air in the plant, said in his report, found radioactive cesium, which is formed by the reaction of nuclear fission. Now it is in the reactor uncontrollably, ITAR-TASS reported.
Authorities hoped to bring the situation under control, releasing into the atmosphere of the radioactive steam from the cooling system. However, due to strong radiation had to suspend the operation.
More than 700 people were killed in the earthquake in Japan
At least 703 people were killed in a powerful earthquake and tsunami that followed after him to the north-east of Japan, according to Agence France-Presse, with reference to the Saturday police data on the number of deaths from natural disaster.
One of the strongest earthquakes in recent years happened off the coast of Japan's Miyagi prefecture 373 km north-east of Tokyo. Magnitude of 8.9. The earthquake caused a great tsunami in parts of the height of the tidal wave was more than ten meters. Earlier, police confirmed the deaths of 433 people, nearly 1.13 thousand injured. Missing the 784.
However, the local media reported that the final number of victims of elements can make 1,2 thousand people, as hundreds of people were missing.
