It's so beautiful. Thanks for posting those pics! And just in general for keeping us updated on TDLR!

An interesting bit of news for us West Coasters I saw on tonight on the local news... It is estimated that the radiation plume that's blowing from Japan could make it to California by tomorrow some time. However, experts are saying that it is rather minimal with how much has dispersed, therefore we should have nothing to worry about...and that we should worry more about our next 'big one.'

So thought I'd share that with you guys.

I am not worried at all. The amount hitting the coast is extremely small. It really will have no effect. Radiation is not like cyanide or some other deadly substance. A small dose of cyanide can kill you, a little spike in radiation won't do anything. I bet pumping gas and breathing the fumes does way more harm than the tiny amount of radiation that will hit us, if it does. Remember, rain will nock it into the ocean and disperse it.

What kind of radiation is this? (I know I sound dumb) but aren't most types able to just fly threw most substances except lead?

 

No. Most forms of radiation cannot penetrate paper. Gamma can, but gamma rays tend to be emitted only by aggressively radioactive substances, which due to their density, don't tend to travel well in air. Gamma works sort of like a lightbulb -- if you can see it, it can get to you, but it doesn't really travel as fallout.

 

If you want to avoid additional exposure because of material traveling from Japan, skip the banana for breakfast. You're going to receive less than a Banana Equivalent Dose.

Actually, fuel pumps nowadays have Vapor Recovery, so fumes and vapors do not escape. That's why most of the "mom and pop" gas stations are closing, or have closed down. All of the required permits and modifications needed to comply with current emission control regulations are simply too expensive.

I've never been to a gas stations where I couldn't smell any trace of gasoline so less fumes may be escaping, but some still are escaping.

TOKYO (Nikkei)--Oriental Land Co. (4661) will reopen in early April its Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea theme parks that have been closed since March 12, after a massive earthquake struck northeastern Japan.

 

The firm said it is still weighing when to resume operations because the theme parks are located in Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture, an area subject to rolling blackouts by Tokyo Electric Power Co. (9501).

 

Oriental Land said it may hold off opening the theme parks at night or keep one or the other closed.

 

The outer walls of a large roller coaster were partially damaged by the earthquake, and liquefaction was observed at some parking lots outside the complex.

 

The operator plans to complete repairs before reopening the parks.

 

But, said an Oriental Land official, "It will be difficult (to reopen) because you do not know whether rolling blackouts will be carried out until just before" they happen.

 

The the reopening of the parks may be postponed until after April 6, the company said.

Tokyo Disneyland to reopen Friday

The Yomiuri Shimbun

 

Tokyo Disneyland in Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture, will resume operations Friday after being closed since the March 11 earthquake, the amusement park's operator Oriental Land Co. said.

 

But given the electricity shortage caused by power plant shutdowns in the wake of the March 11 disaster, Tokyo Disneyland will not operate after 6 p.m. for the time being.

 

Hotels around the amusement park will likely also return to full operations gradually, sources said.

 

The park operator said it has put off the reopening of Tokyo Disney Sea, a separate amusement park adjacent to Tokyo Disneyland, until late this month at the earliest.

 

According to a senior official at the company, sections of Tokyo Disneyland's carpark were damaged due to liquefaction, but facilities inside the amusement park suffered no major damage.
