UPDATE – Fukushima Daiichi Hit By Tsunami 1.15.2022

Update 1.16.22 (10 am US CST)
Japan has lifted all tsunami advisories and warnings.
No information out of TEPCO or NRA. We may know more when Japan’s Monday work day starts.

 

Update 1.15.22 (8pm US CST)
Japan has reduced one of the tsunami warnings, left one in place, and left the alerts for the entire south and east coasts in force. The Japan Meteorological Agency told people to remain vigilant and not return to low coastal areas. The JMA representative mentioned they do not know the exact mechanism that created the tsunami waves and they don’t know if the danger has passed.

Japan’s nuclear regulator and TEPCO have not released any information about conditions at Daiichi or any of the other coastal nuclear power plants in Japan. Another relevant concern is the large piles of contaminated soil bags that have been stored along the Fukushima coast on beaches and along low-lying areas of river banks near the coast. The inundation levels could put these bags at risk of being swept out to sea.

NHK TV is reporting that Onahama Port, near Fukushima Daiichi is receiving increasing tsunami waves from the Tonga volcano explosion.
The waves in some areas around the Fukushima coast and Tohoku region have reached 1 meter in height while Onahama port was at 70cm and
expected to continue to increase.

The existing defenses at Daiichi should be sufficient to handle the wave inundation but there is equipment in the port that remains unprotected and a few low lying sea front
areas that could be vulnerable. As more information comes out we will issue new reports.
