@Thu, that magnitude is carry on strength. Wait to it pops to a Upper Shindo 5 and above then people will instantly do as they've been practising all their lives.

Blatter is an absolute disgrace, an amoral entity that has taken megalomania to a level not seen since Nero. Better to be battered to submission and finally removed from football. PLEASE. THEN, let the criminal charges be brought.

@Viki, logic fallacy, followed by logic fallacy, red-herring, non sequitur, irrelevance and falsity.

@Clueless: Truly. It may be fine for you to take such an approach, but within the human species there are these people we refer to as 'children', maybe you've seen them, or not, certainly more difficult to find in Fukushima as they are stuck inside day after day not playing outside, getting stressed and over weight, still wearing masks and having to follow predetermined routes to and from places so as to keep away from contaminated areas... anyway, enjoy your cabbage.

@Panbellend, when a number in a report such as this isn't quantified by 'magnitude' hey, it means, by its absence, that the number refers to... shindo. It ain't rocket science!

Yet, that will be an improvement that must be measured against what has already transpired; one cannot in any way derive any comfort from the IAEA statement because from day zero to now and the future it is, has been and will be an utter omnishambles, an unprecedented fall into a world of incomprehensible mistake, amateurism, obfuscation, out and out lies, deceit and WHOLESALE betrayal of the citizens of Japan and the wide international community.
For example during debris removal work conducted in August 2013 at Unit 3 radioactive materials were transported by winds...
As for how foods are sourced for the Elementary school's of Japan through the 'organisation' JA? Well, drives for 'Support Tohoku' are and have been organised, run and delivered. Beautiful, right?
The IAEA knows NOTHING.

@Kaer, they should ALWAYS be ready. Grab bag, route, direction and plan too. All in place. Always be able to drop and leave in a country that is prone to natural catastrophes.

Next to a river. You don't secure your toddler in a safe environment as you are preoccupied? Child dies.
Gross negligence. The responsible party of this equation that resulted in death was the father. He is solely to blame. The three year old can not be. The river, as an inanimate object, can not be. That leaves... QED.

“There is no absolute safety in the world… a plane can fall and a train can overturn,” he said.
At last the truth. The truth, inadvertently, The Truth and exactly WHY nuclear power is the stupidest way to boil water.

@Hed, so that's why there were plans to evacuateTokyo. It was, it could have, it very nearly did. Watch the quicksand there, under your argument and statement.

You can just smell the arrogance on him, this misogynistic miscreant. Why do so many men actually believe they are better than women? It's the 21st Century... isn't it? Or is it. Not over large swathes of the planet, no. Time for one thing:
Well done to the police.

@Loeijean, please, do not forget the single fathers too in your reach out to those who need support.
Why? Why again are children are murdered? It's akin to the state murdering them because the parent was not given support to survive and live and take life on. My wife and I would have taken them in, loved them, made them into the people they deserved to be. Just. Too. Sad. Heartbreaking.
