The world did not end as predicted, but Fukushima rocks with M5.8 earthquake today 22nd May 2011

[Paola Estrada, Japan News Contributor]

USGS: Japan’s Fukushima district was one of the areas affected by today’s M5.8 earthquake that struck Japan’s Honshu region. The Honshu region is a notoriously geologically unstable part of the world, with M5 earthquakes striking the area on a more, or less daily basis.

No damage, or tsunami report has yet been made. In the meantime, the situation at the plant is much worse than when disaster struck some weeks ago as a result of a massive earthquake and tsunami.

The plant operators currently have no plan to curtail the melting down of one, or more of the plant’s reactors and currently, deadly amount of radioactive substances continue to spew into the sea and environment with serious pollution being experienced in parts of the country as far away as Tokyo where drinking water and milk have been found to be heavily contaminated with radioactive particles.

In addition, much of the world now and the Pacific ocean is experiencing  worrying radioactive contamination from the damaged reactors.
