The video footage is devastating. So many people have lost their lives and they can't generate electricity to cool the nuclear plant. Our thoughts and prayers go out to these people.

Dan,
Really glad your brother is ok. Thanks for the update.

We do what we can to help each other out, we share the knowledge and we care about our each others families, friends and the entire world.

And of course thanks to Gustav and all the moderators for running such a great board.

God bless the people affected by the recent tragedy.

I live at 500ft / 150m so no worries at home. But there was some effect in harbors here and shoreline inundations on other islands (Maui and the Big Island that I have heard of). But overall we were lucky.

Japan has plenty of issues including their nuke power plants. Good thing we have worldwide news, the Internet, and the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (located here on Oahu, Hawaii) all of which prepares people and reduce mortality.

My brother is stationed in Yokosuka Japan, serving aboard USS John Stennis.

Just got an eMail from him that so far, him and his family are all OK (wife and 2 kids.)

We all pray for the Japanese people and everyone in Japan. Tragic.......

Germany going to shut down all Nuklear Powerplants. Contamination meters sold out here too. In Japan is most likely game over.
What?? Really?? For what reason. Are they afraid of a 9.0 Earthquake and a Tsunami in Germany lol....Nuclear is still safe...at least here in the US, and I would assume Europe.

In Bulgaria we have one atomic power plant with 4 reactors. Second power plant is being build. The first power plant resists 7.0 Earthquake and we've had 7.5 before. I guess we are playing with our luck in the hands of mother nature and so are many other country's.

+1 Nuclear power, overall, is the cleanest and safest source of power and the only practical way to overcome energy dependence on foreign sources for virtually any country. The tragedy in Japan is horrible, and caused by natural sources. Countless people have lost their lives in automobile accidents, but we would not think of banning cars. We learn from our mistakes and improve on our technologies.

Cooling towers are also very beautiful and graceful accents to the skyline.
