aftershocks are still hitting and pretty strong. Chiba refinery is burning, the
LP gas spheres are ruptured
If they're already ruptured, it should be less dangerous than if they hadn't. The biggest concern during a fire involving LP (propane) tanks is because they can't bleed off the pressure. If they're already self-venting, there hopefully shouldn't be a big boom.

Damn, CoiloverKid. Hope you guys are ok. If you know anyone we can talk to that needs to have relief workers or even financial coordination, let us know.

I sent a PM to Nick and Unabomber (couldn't think of who else to talk to), and a FB message to SubieGal to see if there is any way we could set up a Nasioc paypal donation account. I figure that we can at least get a bunch of people to chip in $10 a person every now and again...I know I am more than willing to. Even if we can just get the money out to someone that anyone over there knows of locally.

yes. you guys are getting the NHK feed. also the other fire in tokyo proper
is in Odaiba; there's another plant there that is 'burning' but it looks like all
the flares / emergency trip valves all tripped so it's burning off product to
atmosphere.

Ok, that fire is way bigger than Hub Oil was in Calgary in the 90s.

Those giant globes are propane tanks. Looks like some of them have failed. One was blowtorching a moment ago when they were talking about how the firefighters couldn't get any closer.
