Strong earthquake rocks northeast Japan. Sudden radiation spike. Tepco lies again.

A strong earthquake with preliminary magnitude 6.0 shook northeast Japan
today.

The quake shook a wide region, including Fukushima and Iwate prefectures, and there was no risk of a tsunami, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

Tokyo Electric Power Co., the utility that runs Fukushima Dai-ichi, said no problems were reported there or at another one of its nuclear plants in Fukushima, and that there were no power outages and radiation monitors did not show any change.

Tepco lied again. The radiation monitor at Okuma, in Fukushima prefecture, nearby the plant, showed a sudden spike in atmospheric radiation two hours after the quake, to a level over 1,600 uSv/hr.

This youtube video shows the shaking on the Tepco webcam, starting at 14:30 on recording.

    Like the spike a few days ago, this is not so near Fukushima Dai-ichi, but is nearer to Fukushima Dai-Ni !
