Philippine authorities: Text on radiation danger is hoax

From Kathy Quiano, CNN

March 15, 2011 12:29 p.m. EDT

(CNN) -- Filipino authorities sought to calm panic unleashed among some residents after a hoax text message warned that radiation from Japan may affect the Philippines.
 
Concerns persist about nuclear reactors in Japan in the wake of a magnitude-9.0 quake and subsequent tsunami that struck the nation Friday.
 
But "there is no immediate danger of nuclear radiation in the Philippines," the nation's Department of Science and Technology said in a statement Monday.
 
The text message, which appeared to be a news flash from the BBC, spread like wildfire on Monday.
 
It said that the Japanese government had confirmed a radiation leak at nuclear plants in Fukushima Prefecture and that "Asian countries should take necessary precautions." It went on to warn that radiation may begin hitting the Philippines by Monday afternoon and instructed people to stay indoors and apply Betadine, an over-the-counter topical iodine-based antiseptic, on their neck area where their thyroid gland is located.
 
The message also warned against being in the rain, telling recipients to use an umbrella or raincoat "even if it's only a drizzle."
 
It was not immediately clear how many people received the message. Although some Filipinos dismissed it as a hoax immediately, others rushed to drugstores in search of Betadine.
 
The message also spread to some Filipinos living abroad, who became concerned about their relatives back home.
 
"I contacted my family, telling them not to go out, not to go anywhere," said Rowena Acquino, a Philippines expatriate in Jakarta, Indonesia. "The one who spread that news should be punished."
 
In its advisory, the Department of Science and Technology warned against believing in "hoax messages" and "rumors." "The advice circulating that people should stay indoors and wear raincoats if they go outdoors has no basis and did not come from the DOST or the National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Center," the statement said. It asked Filipinos to stop forwarding the message "so as not to sow panic among our people."
 
"It was an irresponsible thing to do, considering the anxiety and panic that it can cause the public," said Lyndon Daz, a resident of the Philippine capital, Manila.
 
But, like many, Daz said he is still concerned. "We know the dangers that this can cause when the spread of it and containment is unabated," he said. "I am not quite certain that the Philippines is distantly safe from the radiation effects of the Fukushima power plant."
 
Hoax text messages, warning of impending disasters and often quoting reputable news organizations like the BBC or even CNN, are not uncommon in the Philippines or Indonesia.
 
Some Indonesians also received the message on their mobile phones, on their BlackBerries and on social networking sites like Facebook, Indonesian executive Manda Azhairie said. "It's unfortunate that there are irresponsible people who take advantage of other people's misfortunes," she said.

From the Zetatalk newsletter of May 8, 2011, at http://www.zetatalk.com/newsletr/issue240.htm

" the sinking of the plate tongue holding Indonesia proceeds apace, still not at the finish line. But but as these 634 news articles from newsletter periods dated January 19, February 3, February 10, February 15 for Jakarta, February 23, March 3, March 17, March 31, April 14, and May 5, 2011 show, the flooding has affected over a thousand villages in 251 different locales in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Viet Name, and the Philippines. And the count just keeps rising. Tell me this is normal. These floods are lingering, occurring in areas of low elevation along the seacoasts or where the sea can encroach, and occurring even without rain. "

There are more reports of sinkholes, earth movements, and flooding in the Zetatalk newsletter for Sunday, May 22, 2011 (released early) at http://www.zetatalk.com/newsletr/issue242.htm.  That section of the newsletter is long, so I'll just copy a few parts here.

[start excerpts]
Sunda Plate Bend

    Recently a spate of sinkholes in Viet Nam, poor drainage of rivers in upland Thailand, and a sinkhole in the Philippines have drawn a remarkable line across the Sunda Plate. The Sunda Plate is that portion of the Eurasian Plate that is the tongue holding Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Viet Name, and the Philippines. Per the Zetas, the Sunda Plate operates as an extension of the Eurasian Plate, but the tongue has a distinct border. Note the remarkable correlation with this rash of recent incidents with the Sunda Plate border. All these incidents suddenly occurred around May 1 and during the two week following, as though the northern edge of the Sunda Plate bent at that point, at that time. Note that the incidents took place in the main in highlands, too. Not a sinking issue.



In Viet Nam sinkholes began appearing overnight in Huong Vinh, which is right on the Sunda Plate border. This was preceded by sinkholes at Lam Dong in south Viet Nam, and then a river bank collapsed, dropping morning shoppers into the water at Rach Cam. This does not appear to be sinking, but ground movement.



Flooding in the Thailand highlands is outside of what would be expected for the rainfall, which is slight. Note that no rain is noted for Tak. For Phayao there is no rainfall whatsoever for the month of May. For Dok Kham Tai at the Rai airport also, no actual precipitation for the month of May. In almost every case, the flooding is along rivers, overflowing rivers or a backwash from a river. This is what would occur if the river bottoms had heaved along the Sunda Plate boundary, due to the bend, slowing the drainage and essentially damming the rivers. These are the highlands of Thailand, not a sinking issue.



Indonesia Press Awakens

    During the steady sinking on the plate tongue holding Indonesia over the past few months, rain and high tides were consistently mentioned in news articles. It was quickly apparent that this was an arranged cover-up ploy, an attempt to limit panic that the ZetaTalk predictions were coming true, as often no rain whatsoever was apparent. After months of this, the press began inserting phrases such as "alleged" rain, showing their impatience with this editorial demand. Lately, the press has entered a new phase. They are openly mentioning, even hammering on the fact that months go by and the flooding does not subside. Ah, nothing like an awakened press, challenging the heavy hand of the cover-up!

Flooding in Indonesia worsens, according to the Zetatalk newsletter for Sunday, June 5, 2011 (released early) at http://www.zetatalk.com/newsletr/issue242.htm .

[start excerpt]
Two Months in Indonesia

    If sinking in Indonesia cannot be openly admitted, due to the repressive hand of the Indonesia government and other governments determined to prevent the populace from relating the current Earth changes to ZetaTalk predictions, the press nonetheless seems determined to get the word out. Places sank, and are not coming up for air. The Belu flooding has been in place for the past two months. In Bima the flooding is 25 feet deep. If the Indonesian government won't admit what is happening, it's in the fine print in the press! South Jakarta has had flooding in some areas for two months, as has the Lamongan region of Java. You can hear the chant in the press - two months, two months, two months!

...
Meanwhile, the sinking of the plate tongue holding Indonesia proceeds apace, still not at the finish line. But but as these 866 news articles from newsletter periods dated January 19, February 3, February 10, February 15 for Jakarta, February 23, March 3, March 17, March 31, April 14, May 5, and May 31 show, the flooding has affected over a thousand villages in 283 different locales in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Viet Name, and the Philippines.

Tectonic Plate movements continue in Indonesia and India, according to the ZetaTalk newsletter for July 17, 2011 (released early) at  http://www.zetatalk.com/newsletr/issue250.htm .

[start excerpts]
The great quake in Japan created a slight shift in the Philippine Plate, such that it cannot tilt and fold, and is jammed at the southern end. This has likewise created a delay in the S American roll, though the Mariana Plate is free to tilt and fold and is doing so, as are the plates in the northern Pacific. This does not mean that the New Madrid will occur out of sequence, as without the complete folding in the central Pacific we have predicted, there would not be the room for the N American continent to shift, nor would it move prior to completion of the S American roll. ... It may seem there are delays, but the plate borders are fracturing, loosening their grip upon one another, and the inevitable will arrive without an overall delay in the schedule.

But there is steady plate movement, as a glance at evidence only days apart from diverse places show. The Indo-Australian Plate is sinking at India, and rising at New Zealand, which allows the Sunda Plate tongue holding Indonesia to fold and crumble, sinking below the curve under Sumatra and Java. During a few days in early July this can be seen by high tides at Mumbai, sinking at Bangledesh, and a slosh of water disbursing as far away as the coast of Oman. Mumbai, on the west coast of India, experienced unusually high tides of 5.5 meters on July 2. This was attributed to the monsoons even though there was no rain! Across the Arabian Sea on the Gulf of Oman seawater poured into Kalba. On July 9, seawalls broke in Bangladesh, pouring sea water inland and ruining drinking water reserves. These are signs of a sinking India.

Indonesia Flood Death Toll Rises to 86: Official    Thu, August 23, 2012

Teluk Wondama, West Papua. The death toll from flash floods in a remote region of eastern Indonesia has risen to at least 86 with dozens of people still missing, an official said on Wednesday.

Rescue workers were searching for survivors from the floods which hit West Papua province’s Teluk Wondama district on Monday following torrential downpours.

“At least 86 people were killed and 81 people were injured. We are still searching for dozens of missing people,” Papua search and rescue official Mochamad Arifin said.
 
“The chance of survival for the missing people is slim,” he said.

Arifin said the rescuers would keep searching until Monday next week but could extend their operation if needed.

Those killed had reportedly drowned and been swept away by the powerful waters along with uprooted trees, rocks and debris.

Indonesia’s climatology agency said that most parts of the country were currently experiencing torrential rains, strong winds, high waves and flooding due to extreme weather this year.
