It's Official Japan's a 7!!! Fukushima Nuclear Crisis Level is now a 7 on INES Scale: The Worst on the International Nuclear Emergency Scale. While yet another 7.1 aftershock forces an evacuation of the Stricken Daiichi Nuclear Complex
Breaking New Seas: The Japanese government's Nuclear Safety Agency has declared in a press confernce on Tuesday April 12, 2011 that they are now raising the crisis level of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant emergency from a level 5 up to a level 7, or worst case scenario according to the International Nuclear Event Scale.

While the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency made the decision on Monday. It waited until today's press confernence hosted by Spokesperson Hidehiko Nishiyama to officially reveal to the world the extent of radioactive substances that have already been released from the damaged facilities which are continuing to pose a threat to human health and the environment over a wide area.

According to Nishyama while Fukushima is now officially a level 7 Nuclear Release event, the stricken Daiichi Reactors have only released approximately one tenth of the radiation levels emitted from Chernobyl. Perhaps that it because while Chernobyl was tombed inside a sand a concrete sarcophagus it continues to emit significant levels of radiation into the environment manily due to numerous cracks in the concrete resulting from several years of exposure to both the harshness of the Ukranian Winters, and the heat of their summers.
Yet Fukushima has at least Four Reactors in various stages of meltdown even during the relatively cold of Northern Japan this Spring. That combined with their use of the highly controversial, and extremely volatile Mixed Oxide or MOX Fuel that uses 7% Weapons grade Plutonium combined with Uranium at the Daiichi Nuclear Power facility. As well as the gross mismanagement of storing over 600,000 used yet still highly radioactive fuel storage rods within their now devastated Nuclear containment domes.
The agency used the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale, or INES, to gauge the level As Japan's residents were revering their dead, or missing friends and loved ones from thes massive earthquake, and resulting Tsunami of exactly one month ago, yet another powerful 7.1 aftershock hit offshore of Fukushima Japan at 5:16 pm local time causing another evacuation of the stricken nuclear plant.
It's Aftershock Deja Vu Part Deux:
Japanese authorities issued a warning for a three feet high tsunami after today’s 7.1 earthquake, the second 7.1 or higher aftershock since last Thursday. Today's earthquake had its epicentre offshore of Fukushima prefecture. The warning was lifted after an hour.
At least four people are confirmed dead, while three more have been severely injured by the latest of over 900 recorded aftershocks that have persistently tramatized the Japanese citizens for the past month.
Police and firefighters rescued three survivors, and recovered a 16 year old High School girl who had died after being trapped inside a house the result of a mudslide located in Iwaki City, Fukushima Prefecture. Two additional bodies: an 84 year old Mother and her 63 year old son were recovered nearby in a home that had also been buried under the same mudslide. A 46 year old man from Ryugasaki City died after being rushed to a hospital in Ibaraki Prefecture, after he was found in a parking lot with a headwound soon after today's earthquake.
Meanwhile the "Fukushima Fifty" workers still battling to contain the ongoing nuclear emergency were ordered to evacuate the crippled reactor complex, according to TEPCO officials after today's earthquake knocked out eletrical power temporaily. TEPCO is now reporting that power has now been restored to the Daiichi Nuclear Plant.
“The company ordered workers to withdraw and stay in a quake-proof building,” a spokesman for the operator said. “We don’t know many workers were involved.”
With today being one full month after the catastrophic March 11th earthquake, and resulting Tsunami the official number of people who have either been confirmed dead or still missing in the aftermath of the now stands at 26,848. A number that has now increased by 4 with today's additional deaths.
The Japanese National Police Agency on Monday formerly announced that 13,130 people have so far been confirmed dead, with 8,017 fatalities in Miyagi Prefecture, 3,825 in Iwate and 1,226 in Fukushima. This figure includes deaths reported after last Thursdays 7.1 aftershock.
Here's da video of the mysterious blue light that appeared on the seaward horizon during the April 7th 7.1 magnitude aftershock that hit offshore of Sendai Japan:
Japanese authorities have now released that approximately 83 percent of the recovered bodies have been successfully identified thusfar with most already been turned over to their immediate family members.
The remaining number of people reported to still be missing by their families, or loved ones now stands at 13,718.
Three towns and cities in Miyagi Prefecture that were hardest hit by the tsunami are unable to calculate the number of missing people, as there have been no survivors to report them as missing. Progress in search operations within the current 20-kilometer evacuation zone around the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, has been understandably limited.
The National Police Agency also announced that over 145,000 people are still living in temporary evacuation facilities in over 18 prefectures around the Tohoku region.
Miyagi Prefecture residents lead the list with 52,498, followed by Iwate with 45,319 and Fukushima Prefecture with 24,809.
About 23,000 people are taking shelter in other prefectures, and most of them being forced to evacuate their homes in Fukushima Prefecture as a result of what the Japanese officials have finally admitted:
Fukushima has now officially joined Chernobyl as the only two Nuclear Radiation Emergencies to be declared to be a 7 on the INES Scale.

The Japanese government's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency has at last announced that they are now declaring to raise the crisis level of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant accident from a 5 to 7, the worst on the international scale of atomic emergencies. On Monday April 11 the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency admitted that the damaged facilities have been releasing massive uncontrolled amounts of radioactive substances, which are posing a widespread threat to human health and the environment.
The International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale, or INES, was developed to gauge the actual threat level of Nuclear Power Plant meltdowns and other leaks of radioactive particles into the environment. The scale was designed by an international group of experts to indicate the significance of nuclear events with ratings of 0 to 7, with a 7 posing the worst possible threat to the global environment.
On March 18th, one week after the massive quake, the agency declared the Fukushima trouble a level 5 incident, the same as the accident at Three Mile Island in the United States in 1979.
Since we are now living in the age of YouTube, and not confined to the spin of the corporate controlled mass media such as Containment News Network (CNN) regular viewers of Da New Sees World Report, and a host of additional alternative media sources have been skeptical to say the least that this current international crisis was comparable to the relatively tame radioactive fart that was Three Mile Island.
See Da New Seas Report from March 18th 2011:
What the Media is Not Showing and Telling You about Fukushima: Why Japan's Nuclear Crisis may already be the World's Worst Nuclear Meltdown Disaster!
There has previously only been one other formal declaration of a INES Scale Level 7 nuclear emergency, that being the infamous Chernobyl accident in the former Soviet Union in 1986 when hundreds of thousands of terabecquerels of radioactive iodine-131 were released into the air.
Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agencies spin Du Jour is that the cumulative amount from the Fukushima plant is less than that from Chernobyl. The fact that the greatest volume of radiation released thusfar is now floating Northeastward in the North Pacific Current, and not settling upon Tokyo due to the seasonal offshore wind patterns in Northern Honshu Island has given the Nuclear Safety Agency the confidence to continue to not reveal the actual extent of our World's Worst Nuclear Crisis ever.
Officials from the agency and the Nuclear Safety Commission will hold a news conference on Tuesday morning to explain the change of evaluation. Stay tuned: It promises to be as full of truth as was Barack Obama's Speech where he told the American people:
"I believe that you must know what I knows as President!"
