Deadly Typhoon NANGKA Striking Japan

Posted by feww on July 16, 2015

Deadly NANGKA barrels toward Shikoku, Japan

Typhoon NANGKA, the season’s 11th typhoon, is making landfall on Japan’s Shikoku island, prompting the authorities to evacuate up to a third of a million people in 11 prefectures, with more than 1.5 million others on standby to evacuate their homes, if necessary.

Flash floods triggered by the powerful typhoon have already killed at least two people, and left about 20 others injured, locals have reported.

Torrential rains brought by NANGKA [Malaysian name for the Jack fruit, no reason given for the choice of name,] have already caused multiple landslides in several prefectures, and forced Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways to cancel hundreds of domestic flights. Many train cancellations were also reported.

Japan’s weather agency has issued Warnings or Advisories for the entire country, with storm, high waves, heavy rain,
flooding, storm surge, thunderstorm and/or ground-loosening inundation topping the typhoon’s list of impacts.

NANGA was on course to hit the island of Shikoku at about midnight local time [UTC+ 9.00  hrs,] before slamming the main island of Honshu, on Friday.

Volcanic Vent at Owakudani Valley near Tokyo Erupts

Posted by feww on June 30, 2015

Mt. Hakone erupts spewing ash and steam

A “minor volcanic eruption” has occurred at Mt Hakone near Tokyo starting Monday night through Tuesday, according to officials.

Fresh layers of volcanic ash were discovered Tuesday morning around a newly-formed vent in the Owakudani valley, which forms part of the Mount Hakone range (Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park) located in Kanagawa prefecture.

Volcanic tremors have been shaking the Hakone mountain since Monday morning, officials said, warning nearby residents that the volcano could eject sizable rocks to a radius of about one kilometer and smaller rocks even further.

The warning level on the Hakone was  raised to level 3 [“Do not approach the volcano,”] at 12:30 JST today [June 30,  2015.]

The volcano has been ejecting steam over the past few months.

Mt Hakone is located about 80 km SW of central Tokyo. More than 45 million people live within a 100-km radius of the volcano according to FIRE-EARTH Population Models.

Volcano Erupts 160km S. of Sendai Nuke Plant

Posted by feww on May 29, 2015

Japan’s Mt. Shindake erupts prompting highest level alert on Kuchinoerabujima island

Officials are considering evacuation of about 150 residents of the small island of Kuchinoerabujima, reported NHK.

The explosion was followed by a pyroclastic flow of super-heated volcanic matter which swept down the side of the mountain and reached the ocean, NHK said.

It’s unclear whether the eruption and recent earthquakes in the region, or anything short of another direct nuclear catastrophe, would affect the restart of Kyushu Electric’s Sendai nuclear power plant, which the nuclear regulator cleared on Wednesday.

Shindake erupted about 10:00am local time, ejecting a large plume of black smoke and ash into the air, promoting the weather agency to issued a level-five warning for the area, the highest on its scale, and advising evacuations.

The Kuchinoerabujima island [area of 38.04km², population of 149 persons] is located about 160km south of the Sendai nuclear plant, on Japan’s southernmost main island of Kyushu.

Planet of the Abe’s Membership of Zoos & Aquariums Suspended

Posted by feww on May 10, 2015

Cruelty to dolphins: Japan’s membership of Zoos and Aquariums suspended

The World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) has suspended Japan’s membership following a unanimous vote by its council.

WAZA is the “umbrella” organization for the world zoos and aquariums, with its  permanent Executive Office based in Berne, Switzerland.

WAZA said it regards the dolphin drive hunting, a brutal fishery method practiced in Taiji  (Wakayama Prefecture), “cruel” to dolphins and has therefore suspended Japan’s membership.

Dolphin drive hunting is a method of hunting dolphins by driving them together with boats into a bay where they are encircled and their escape route to the open waters is blocked with nets. The dolphins are then harpooned, or clubbed to death, with a few captured (live takes) and sold to aquariums (dolphinariums).

However, WAZA itself has been the target of a court action launched by conservationists for “effectively approving the cruel dolphin hunts,” said a report.

The Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums (JAZA), which takes dolphins from the hunt, had rejected a WAZA proposal for a two-year moratorium on drive hunting.

JAZA has 153 zoos and aquariums in Japan, with 30 of the outlets holding dolphins in their dolphinariums, according to reports.

Some 5,000 dolphins have been viciously killed at Taiji, with a further 750 live takes sold to dolphinariums worldwide since 2010, according to the whale and dolphin database Ceta Base.

WAZA suspended Japan’s membership on April 21.

Large clouds of yellow sand, smog from China plaguing Korean Peninsula, Japan

Westerly winds are blowing high levels of yellow sand and smog from China across Korean Peninsula and Japan, posing a potential hazard across the region.

Korean Peninsula has received massive levels of yellow sand and smog since Sunday, while much of Japan is experiencing varying degrees of air pollution imports from China.

The smog prompted Korea Meteorological Administration to issue yellow dust warnings and advisories for much of the country, including Seoul, Incheon, Gwangju and several other surrounding cities on Sunday.

The massive clouds of yellow dust, which originate in the deserts of Mongolia, northern China and Kazakhstan, are often laden with potentially deadly cocktails of bacteria and industrial pollutants.

Powerful blizzard buries N. Japan cities in 100cm of snow

A powerful blizzard barreled into the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido with heavy snow and hurricane-force winds of 130 km/hr, burying several cities, according to local media.

A low-pressure system had already dumped up to 100cm of snow on large sections of the island, forcing dozens of train and flight cancellations, and blocking major highways.

Forecasters say the stationery system could dump up to 70 cm of additional snow in Hokkaido and 50cm in coastal regions of Sea of Japan  by lunchtime Monday.

The blizzard is the third major snowstorm to pound northern Japan in the last 6 weeks.

First state commemoration of the Nanjing Massacre held in China

Addressing the first state commemoration of Nanjing Massacre Victims, the Chinese President Xi said the massacre, committed by Japanese aggressors, was one of three major massacres during WWII. It was an atrocious anti-human crime and a dark page in the history of humanity, he said, Xinhua reported.

“Anyone who tries to deny the massacre will not be allowed by history, the souls of the 300,000 deceased victims, the 1.3 billion Chinese people, and all people who love peace and justice in the world,” said Xi.

“In February 2014, China’s top legislature designated Dec. 13 as the National Memorial Day for Nanjing Massacre Victims to mourn those killed by Japanese invaders and expose war crimes committed by the Japanese,” said Xinhua.
