Silence for Fukushima

Nuclear Disaster | As you all know, there’s one part of the world which currently experiences one of the worst things which could ever happen. Right, I’m talking about the nuclear-tsunami-earthquake disaster in Japan.

Recently Japan has raised the alert level at a stricken nuclear plant from four to five on a seven-point scale (the nuclear disaster from Chernobyl is the reference value!), which means that there’s no surprise turnaround on the horizon! For that reason and to show my sympathy with all the victims and missing persons I will stop writing posts on Urban Artcore for one week – For me it’s something like a week of silence!

Meanwhile, further heavy snowfall overnight all but ended hopes of rescuing anyone else from the rubble after the 9.0-magnitude quake and tsunami. Millions of survivors have been left without water, electricity, fuel or enough food; hundreds of thousands more are homeless. According to the latest figures, 6,405 people are dead and about 10,200 are missing. (BBC)

The next post will be published on March 27th. Hopefully, it’s not getting that worse as it looks like at the moment…
