It looks like a new event has been under way at Fukushima the past week, and the radiation is starting to show up in the US. Thanks to Deb Reed from Facebook:

The Tomioka camera is having heavy pixilation as well. First time I have really seen radiation hitting that camera……..

Still seeing frequent pixel flashes on tepsham north (nearest R1). Not seeing any on tepsham south (nearest R4), but the view is so blurry and apparently filtered that I wouldn’t be suprised if they’ve got filters enabled to remove/prevent pixel flashes, etc. But if they’ve got such a filter on tepsham south, why not tepsham north? Are they that sloppy that they can’t even consistently censor their webcams?
Given everything that I’ve seen… the smoke and pixel flashes, etc. etc., including this http://i.imgur.com/h8DjcIL.png (from earlier today) and this http://i.imgur.com/YE1IFGF.jpg (from just now — I added the red arrows):
I would STRONGLY RECOMMEND that anyone in southern Japan — or really ANYWHERE IN Japan — take precautions IMMEDIATELY. Run your HEPA air filters, do not allow anyone to wear their shoes into your home, avoid ANY outdoor activity, etc. This will eventually apply to other countries as well, but to a less grave extent. I know many of us have been taking these precautions since 3/11/11, but it is of PARTICULAR IMPORTANCE that people in Japan IMMEDIATELY take these precautions to avoid grave health effects. I think we can say with some confidence at this point that SOMETHING horrible is happening at the plant RIGHT NOW. Just a matter of time before hard evidence starts leaking out…

I have never before seen this much traffic on the Tomioka cam. More dump trucks, heavy equipment, speeding cars. Almost witnessed a collision awhile ago.

Guys in white radiation suits on futaba cam 10:15 JST

Do you have any screencaps? Ive never seen them wearing the tyvek suits on futaba, just the guards closing and opening the gate with the face mask.
I think that’s something if they are wearing full suits on futaba, that’s a good stretch from the plant and still getting decent amounts of traffic.

5 cars pulled onto left side of road beyond the bridge. A bunch of workers got out, dressed in hazard vests,one in a white suit. They went to the area behind the grey building as if to look for something. 11:45 JST

Real time note: 2014-02-27 11:54 jst
Looks like fast moving translucent emissions and some brown puffs coming from the CSFP area to the far left. (west)
On full screen it can be seen.
It is blurry though.

02-28-2014 00:39 TBS Webcam 1, North, shows emissions/smoke coming out of the right top side of Reactor 2. And, of course, ongoing emissions over Reactors 3 and 4. Nasty. Wish winds would blow from East to West…Permanently.

I see the tiny flashes on R3.
Earlier at 00:33 jst I saw a white vertical fast flying bolt fly up from that same spot.
Maybe somethings cooking.
The cranes have been very active near that spot.
currently 00:56 jst

around 2014-03-01 2:06 JST :
Tepsham south (nearest R4) showing the red flicker at the bottom center, near the bottom of the closest vent stack. Could be fire, emergency lights, or other…
Tepsham north (nearest R1) still appears to show venting from R3 or the vent stack with lots of “fog” above R3. Still seeing regular pixel flashes.

JNN has glowing hot spots..major one for the entire Reactor 3 covering..or going from Reactor 2 base all the way over to Reactor 4, behind the big vent stack for Reactor 3. Reactor 2 has a hot spot up by where the emissions are coming out of the roof, in JNN view that is on the left top side. On the TBS Webcam 1 view, looking from the North, its on the top of the roof, on the right side. JNN view also shows a hot spot, for the first time I have seen,midway up the left side. And a hot spot on the left side of the metal building/shelter in front of Reactor 4. Reactor 1 has more hot spots..the entire side facing Reactor 2 and the side facing the MainLand. Reactor 2, that ‘blue white light’ at the base we see also shows up as HOT. All in all, the new is the area of Reactor 4, and the increased area of encompassing Reactor 3. Its NOT heart warming to see..Date 03010214 2:30 AM JST TIME.

Johnny Blade’s Tomioka Cam alert continues. I just saw a fire truck w/lights flashing head towards the plant, cement trucks, returning trucks filled with bulging black bags (looks like the pics of bags of decontaminated soil), others with debris, lots of buses, lots of minivans with slapped on magnetic signs on the doors–all heading towards the plant.
Thanks for the alert, Johnny. I agree: Something’s Up!

Sparky, this is the first time I have seen flashes and funny pixels on the Tomioka web cam. Near the road in front..and the sides.

03022014 02:36 JST time HEAVY EMISSIONS from Reactors 3 and 4. Bet we soon see WEBS again on TBS webcam South. The steam and emissions are building. And its just over the Reactors 3 and 4 as you can see NO FOG over other areas from TBS Webcam 1, North. Also, see the two lights on top of the roof of Reactor 3. TEPCO would not have human workers there..would they?

Yeah now it looks like the plasma energy is arcing on tepcam 1, starting to pop through on the left edge, loooks like its go time.
TBS is all blacked out for me, with no audio, so Im guessing its been turned off , and futaba shows a fairly bright skyline.
On Tepcam 2 you can see the fog or steam or smokergy or whatever the hell it is pushing out, there’s a crane behind it on the right hand side and at sunset last night you could barely see the gray smoke just starting to obscure the crane. No plasma arcing on tepcam 2 though.
And the CDC in its weekly influenza report for the week ending Feb. 22 shows high prevalence of influenza-like illness (ILI) in Texas and Oklahoma. These states were exposed to the WIPP release on the night of Feb. 14. (ILI is defined as fever (temperature of 100°F [37.8°C] or greater) and cough and/or sore throat.)
