  • A Chilling Reminder

    I'm no where near the end of my research as this is a very early step in a standard procedure used for an event of this magnitude. But as I went back to find where the list started and then started logging the list I had a chill of sorts go through me and realized some of y'all might wish to see what I am seeing as I do this. As we see events unfolding even now it is something like the 4th article that really jumps out at you.

    And as I have just noted the 4th article I will also state that I found it rather chilling to see that image posted on the page where you can view the original. The image from a television screen is, I think, the fire noted in No. 5.

    In addition, the vocabulary used in the title for article 4, the reference to nuke plants, is a rather clear indication that people at NHK were flustered. That is certainly not the kind of vocabulary they would normally use. The notice on the screen shot to the left of the article of the quake being a 7.9 is also how it was listed on the JMA site for a fair bit of time. I have that recorded in some detail on another website. I'm sure I'm not allowed to post that link here. But some of the stuff on JMA goes into the delete bin after they have corrected the stats and I wanted the record before they did that. That might happen with this NHK World website, but I don't when.

    Another interesting note is that article No. 6 was not posted before No. 5, but there may be more of that. These are the very early stages of research.

    Okay, enough yakking from me, let me post this.

    I'll provide the full text of the first few articles.

    Govt sets up situation room

    Prime Minister Naoto Kan and his Cabinet ministers have gathered at the Prime Minister's Office, where an emergency task force has been set up to respond to the earthquake.

    The task force will gather information on damage and prepare for possible tsunami.

    Railway services have ground to a halt.

    Shinkansen bullet trains have halted operations around the country, including northeastern Japan where the earthquake occurred.

    Train operations are also suspended in northeastern Japan, as well as in Tokyo, where railway companies are checking the safety of lines.

    Quake damage

    The fire department in Yokohama, south of Tokyo, says a building in Tsuzuki Ward has collapsed and 3 people may be trapped inside. Firefighters are trying to rescue them.

    In Yamagata, northern Japan, firefighters rushed to a hotel in the center of the city that is reportedly on fire after the powerful quake. It is not known if there are any casualties.

    A tremor with an intensity of 6-plus on the Japanese scale of 0 to 7 was registered in Utsunomiya City, north of Tokyo. Firefighters were mobilized after receiving several reports of fires. The local fire department said there are reports of injuries.

    The anti-disaster office for Ofunato City, Iwate Prefecture, in northeastern Japan, says quite strong tremors continued for about a minute.

    It says the city office building has no power, and a seismometer cannot be checked.

    It adds that the city is issuing radio alerts for major tsunami.

    From here I think you can see the pattern and I don't need to keep posting full articles. I'll put a few more hpyerlinks here so you can do a quick flash through some of the early news as it came into the NHK World newsroom and you can remember where you were when these events were unfolding. Yes, I imagine some of you were too far away to have any special thoughts in the area. Myself, as of the time of the 6th article the train officials had decided we should evacuate the train I was on. Had a long walk after that, but at least I was able to get home after a three-hour something walk. Some couldn't do that. Then the cleanup started. But lucky for me not a lot of broken stuff. Okay, enough of that.

          That`s the point the OP is trying to make, right? I actually have absolutely no idea what he`s going on about...

                Actually, when it's a disaster of this scope one must first do all the archiving that's necessary. And a lot of archiving is necessary. Takes weeks or longer.

                On something of this scale whether to actually move into the outline stage for a book is a decision that's made a fair bit down the road . And we still don't know what the outcome at the Fukushima plant will be. That could go south in a flash.
