    Just heard about the partial meltdown. Geez, that was the last thing anyone needed. Well, I can only hope that their plan to prevent it from going critical works out.

    Thanks Dinty, I'll be sure to look out for those then.

    I'm trying to keep optimistic about the meltdown with the fact that nowhere else seems to have reported it yet. >.<

    The nuclear crisis still continues. Imminent Meltdown underway? Was this confirmed by TV Asahi?

    BBC hasn't reported a meltdown, you guys are the only ones I've heard from. Instead BBC is saying the workers will "release radioactive steam from the number three reactor at Fukushima No. 1 plant, after the cooling system failed there."

    Sorry, I mean they're just repeating that. It looks like it's all they have.

    It seems that the boat pumps are insufficient in delivering cool water to the coastline nuclear reactors.

    I just saw it posted on MSN about an hour ago. Apparently they're trying to cool the thing down by pumping in sea water, which means they'll have to decomission it thanks to the salt.

    Decomission ? I thought that given it was to close anyway, they would close it off immediately when it could be done.

    Do they really have other options besides dumping sea water into it? I think it's the best solution to the perilous dangers of a meltdown considering the situation of their roads and available man power as of recent time.

    America was sending coolant as quickly as possible, but clearly that hasn't worked out.

    Has this aid been confirmed to have reached Japan?

    Iceborg -- many of the donation sites that have already been mentioned can be used from most countries, but if you haven't got a way to pay for things online, then wait a few days and the Portuguese newspapers should soon start mentioning places where you can donate locally. I did a quick check for you of some online Portuguese papers, but couldn't find anything yet (I only know about 3 words of the Portuguese language, and a few of your legendary football/soccer players names -- so my searching wasn't very efficient, but ...)


    Good luck!

    Not sure if this is relative to anyone or not, but I spoke to my friend this morning. He is in Okinawa and said the tsunami didn't even reach them. So, if you have friends or family in Okinawa, they should be safe.
