Video: Japan’s Earthquake Triggers Tsunami Waves Surge Nov 2016

22 11 2016

A 7.3 magnitude earthquake shook northern Japan at 5:59 am on 22nd of November, 2016, triggering a small tsunami.

Japan Meteorological Agency said that the epicentre of the earthquake, which was felt in Tokyo, was off the coast of Fukushima prefecture at a depth of about 10 km (6 miles).

The quake however did not kill or injure anyone, nor did it damage the Onagawa Nuclear Plant, though Tokyo Electric Power Co was still checking if the other nuclear plants in Fukushima are damaged.

The biggest quake recorded to hit Japan was a 9 magnitude quake, causing a large tsunami which led to the world’s worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl, a quarter of a century earlier.

Below are some videos of the tsunami waves surge:

Photos: Typhoon Man-yi Strikes Japan Killing 2

17 09 2013

Typhoon Man-yi made a landfall at Toyohashi in Aichi prefecture, Japan just before eight o’clock on Monday morning or 2300 GMT Sunday.

The typhoon brought strong winds, high waves and heavy rains, damaging houses and flooding parts of Kyoto.

Yura River and Katsura River in Kyoto were overflowed and the Togetsu Bridge was partially-submerged.

Two people were killed by the disaster.

The typhoon forced the operator of the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant to release rainwater with low levels of radiation into the ocean.

According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, the typhoon has a sustained winds of up to 162 kilometres (100 miles) per hour.

Anti-Nuclear Protests In Tokyo And Seoul-Photos

I think that nuclear power is very dangerous.

Nuclear power is very dangerous because if there is an accident at the power plant, it can cause nuclear radiation like what is now happening in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Nuclear radiation is dangerous because the effect can be something like the effect of a nuclear weapon or an atomic bomb.

And if a nuclear power plant exploded, it can be as bad as being hit by an atomic bomb.

Nuclear power plant is an efficient and clean way to produce electricity but it can also become a disaster of mass destruction that can kill and harm lots and lots of people, animals and plants.

It will take a very, very long time to get rid of the nuclear radiation from the atmosphere, soil and the water system.

Go Green 🙂

I think we should use more wind turbine and solar power to produce electricity.

An environmental activist wearing a mask takes part in a rally demanding the government halt the building of more nuclear plants in South Korea, in Seoul March 28, 2011, on the 32nd anniversary of U.S. Three Mile Island nuclear power plant accident in 1979. South Korea, a major global supplier of nuclear plants, will carry on with its nuclear plans despite the crisis at a quake-hit nuclear complex in nearby Japan, a government minister said on Monday. Nuclear power accounts for 31.4 percent of South Korea's electricity generation needs, and the world's fifth-largest oil importer has a target to increase that to 48.5 percent by 2024. It has 7 reactors under construction, with plans to build 6 more and bring to 34 the number on-stream by 2024. REUTERS/Jo Yong-Hak





Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant Disaster

Explosions at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant caused more serious disaster to Japan after a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami.

At least 10,000 people were killed in the earthquake and tsunami disasters.

This is the world’s most serious nuclear accident since the Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine in 1986.

Nuclear power plant is a place where people produce electricity.

But nuclear radiation is very, very dangerous.

It can kill human, animals and plants and it can also caused cancer.

It could cause a big disaster and the effect will last for a long, long time.

This is the worst nuclear disaster in Japan after the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings in 1945.
