    Fukushima nuke plant situation 'worsened considerably': think tank
    WASHINGTON, March 15, Kyodo

    The situation at the quake-hit Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant in northeastern Japan ''has worsened considerably,'' the Institute for Science and International Security said in a statement released Tuesday.

    Referring to fresh explosions that occurred earlier in the day at the site and problems in a pool storing spent nuclear fuel rods, the Washington-based think tank said, ''This accident can no longer be viewed as a level 4 on the International Nuclear and Radiological Events scale that ranks events from 1 to 7.''

    Noting that a level 4 incident involves ''only local radiological consequences,'' it said the ongoing crisis is ''now closer to a level 6, and it may unfortunately reach a level 7'' -- a worst case scenario with extensive health and environmental consequences.

    ''The international community should increase assistance to Japan to both contain the emergency at the reactors and to address the wider contamination. We need to find a solution together,'' it said.

    But what day was it in Japan? that's why this kind of date notice is really bad - why center it on our dating? At least Jerusalem time, I could understand.

    I believe it was around 2:45 (someone will correct me if I'm wrong) in the afternoon on March 11 in Japan. Right in the middle of a busy Friday.

    These past few days have been unbelievable. It is hard to wrap my brain around all this.

    Here is a link to unbelievable photos after the tsunami.

    I need to spend some time in prayer for everyone affected by this disaster. I look at these pictures, and all that comes out of me is, "Oh, Lord..."

    Look at the links across the net about the iodide pills. Our own government is in disagreement with itself over whether people should be stocking up on them or not.

    Amen, Ron4Jesus............ I am baffled as to why we haven't had a bad earthquake on our west coast yet. We're certainly overdue in more ways than one. It would not surprise me if we're next, considiering our government's treatment of Israel, AND all the blatant in-your-face sin in our country.

    I live about fifteen miles inland from Newport Beach and twenty miles north of the San Ononofre nuclear plant. We have the Inglewood-Newport fault to our west and the San Andreas fault to our east. I will not be the least bit surprised if and when it should happen.

    Praying it won't - but expecting to happen sometime soon.

    for you. We are living in some very turbulent times. We know the end result, we will be with our maker very very soon. This world sickens me immensely.

    I'm still reeling from the awful scale of this disaster. I've always had a love of Japanese culture, so this hurts to see them suffering so much. Hopefully, the church will reach out to them and lead many of them to Christ. for them!

    The San Andreas fault hasn't slipped yet.

    While it's true final Tribulation judgments are coming to the entire world for its rejection of Christ, we shouldn't be pinpointing certain regions as more sinful than others, making "wrath" more immanent. This fallen world is crumbling all around us. Disaster is on the horizon for every inch of the globe according to Scripture.

    There is nowhere to hide except in Christ Jesus. FLEE TO HIM!

    I've been watching Fox News off and on tonight. I can't watch for too long because I just become overwhelmed with what the Japanese people are going through. Of those who have survived the EQ and the tsunami, I have to wonder how many of them are going to die from hypothermia, starvation, nuclear fallout and disease caused by all the decaying, dead bodies. There have been some huge disasters in this world in my lifetime, but I'm not sure that anything measures up to what's going happening in Japan. Lord, please have mercy on these poor people.

    Yes! But the ring of fire is gonna get California, and it may be sooner than later. I hate the thought of anyone here going through that.

    Please join me in praying for our brothers and sisters and all the people of Japan. As I write this I have just learned that personnel have abandoned the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant because of radiation levels.

    The fate of the beleaguered power plant, and likely the area around Fukushima, now clearly rests in the Lord's hands. This is very bad, and now appears beyond our human ability to deal with what we designed, developed and constructed.

    May God have mercy upon the people of Japan... may God help them. May the God of Abraham, Jacob and Isaac intervene.

    Another 6.0 near the east coast of Honshu, according to USGS. How much more can the Japanese take? I know they are a strong, proud people, but the toll on them must be immense! God have mercy on them!

    Yikes! We're in Washington . . . right on the coast, actually, so that would be heading right our direction! I'm praying God decides to hold off on sending that quake and tsunami our direction until after he takes us home! But if not, I know where my kids, my husband, and I are going!

    Isn't God amazing? If it weren't for him, I'd totally be panicking right about now. I mean, all the financial whiz's telling us to prepare for the "economic apocalypse," earthquakes and tsunamis coming to a state near you, super volcanoes waking up, radioactive fallout, the government threatening to indoctrinate my precious children with the gay agenda and "all paths lead to God" . . . it's enough to make anyone start having anxiety attacks! I am just so grateful for God's peace. It's the only thing getting me through my days any more. I know that no matter what happens, God sees me, knows me, loves me, has my best interests at heart, and will provide for my every need. And the same goes for my little ones (3 and 18 months), my husband, much of my family, many dear friends, and any one else who places their faith in Him. Things may appear to be spinning out of control, but God is at the helm! No matter what happens to our physical bodies, our souls are safe with Him! What an amazing God we serve!

    Other than my wife's outrageous temper and mood swings, I literally fear nothing. Since having been saved ten years ago, the Lord has steadily been removing all fear and uncertainty from my life. If a tsunami hit Iowa, I'd probably blame Bush.

    Mellisa - I totally agree, and I would be in a PANIC if I wasn't saved. It is like the whole world is being turned upside down with all the disasters, financial woes, etc. I know that God is in control and I know that He will provide for all my needs.
