Douglas and Elida - Two tropical storms developed in the Eastern Pacific

Two tropical low pressure areas chasing each other in the Eastern Pacific over the last several days now developed into tropical storms. By June 30, 2014 Tropical Storm Douglas and Tropical Storm Elida became more organized but no major development is forecasted.TS Douglas and Elida captured in Eastern Pacific on June 30, 2014 (Credit: NASA/BlueMarble/GOES West)According to the latest public advisory by NHC, Tropical Storm Douglas is located about 465 miles (750 km) SW of the southern tip of Baja California and is moving NW at speed of 8 mph (13 km/h) with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (65 km/h). Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km) from the center. Minimum central pressure is 1003 mb (29.62 inches). The system is ingesting drier and more… »

TEPCO Submits Plan For Fuel Removal At Unit 3 Fukushima Daiichi

TEPCO submitted plans to the NRA for spent fuel removal from unit 3. This included more detail on how they intend to install a cover and remove transit casks from the building.
The defueling building cover bridges the original reactor building, putting the load on the existing scaffolding system and an accessory building.
This structure avoids contact with the reactor well, known to have high radiation levels. TEPCO did not mention any measures to prevent radiation issues from the fuel canal between the reactor and the spent fuel pool. They also do not mention anything about worker exposures or how human work would be conducted. Estimated radiation levels in the area are as high as 1 sievert/hour.

The fuel casks would be moved out of the pool to the left side as seen in the diagram. This would allow them to be lowered to an area near the original garage and …

Expert “Inflation of the volcanic edifice has been observed in Mt. Fuji since 311/ Stocking 300 years of energy”

A specially appointed professor of Musashino Gakuin University, Shimamura warns about the possibility of Mt. Fuji’s eruption.

He states neighboring volcanos erupted within 4 years after the internationally historical 6 cases of the quakes over M9.0 for 100% possibility. He also adds that inflation of the volcanic edifice has been seen in Mt. Fuji since 311.

A new volcanic island keeps growing in the Pacific offshore Tokyo. (cf, New crater appeared on the new volcanic island / Erupting every 10 seconds / Expert “Extremely active” [URL])

He comments this new island is also on Fuji volcanic belt. Its volcanic activity can affect Mt. Fuji as well.

The last eruption of Mt. Fuji was in 1707. The next potential eruption is assumed to have the energy that has been stocked for 300 years.

Expert : “Un gonflement du volcan du Mt Fuji est observé depuis le 11-3 / 300 ans d’énergie accumulée”

Le Pr Shimamura, professeur spécialement nommé de l’université de Musashino Gakuin, prévient d’une possibilité d’éruption du Mt. Fuji.
Il affirme que les volcans voisins sont entrés en éruption dans les 4 années sont entrés en éruption dans les 4 années suivant chacun des 6 cas connus de séismes de magnitude supérieure à 9, avec une probabilité de 100%. Il ajoute également que le gonflement du cône volcanique est constaté depuis le 11-3.

Une nouvelle île volcanique continue de grandir dans le Pacifique au large de Tokyo. (cf. Un nouveau cratère sur la nouvelle île volcanique / éruption toutes les 10 secondes / un expert : “Extrêmement actif”)
Il déclare que cette nouvelle île fait partie du bouclier volcanique du Mt Fuji. Son activité volcanique peut aussi affecter le Mt. Fuji.
La dernière éruption du Mt. Fuji a eu lieu en 1707. La prochaine éruption est supposée avoir l’énergie qui s’y est emmagasinée depuis 300 ans.
