A small dose of cyanide can kill you, a little spike in radiation won't do anything. I bet pumping gas and breathing the "emission controlled reduced amount of fumes" does way more harm than the tiny amount of radiation that will hit us, if it does. Remember, rain will nock it into the ocean and disperse it.
TOKYO (Nikkei)--Oriental Land Co. (4661) will reopen in early April its Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea theme parks that have been closed since March 12, after a massive earthquake struck northeastern Japan.
The firm said it is still weighing when to resume operations because the theme parks are located in Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture, an area subject to rolling blackouts by Tokyo Electric Power Co. (9501).
Oriental Land said it may hold off opening the theme parks at night or keep one or the other closed.
The outer walls of a large roller coaster were partially damaged by the earthquake, and liquefaction was observed at some parking lots outside the complex.
The operator plans to complete repairs before reopening the parks.
But, said an Oriental Land official, "It will be difficult (to reopen) because you do not know whether rolling blackouts will be carried out until just before" they happen.
The the reopening of the parks may be postponed until after April 6, the company said.
We have some news to share from Tokyo Disneyland following last month’s earthquake. The Tokyo Disneyland theme park, Tokyo Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Ambassador Hotel are all scheduled to reopen to guests this Friday, April 15. A portion of every ticket sold through May 14 will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross and the park will operate during daylight hours only in an effort to conserve power.
Tokyo DisneySea and Hotel MiraCosta will remain closed but officials with The Oriental Land Company (owners and operators of the Tokyo Disney Resort) are working to reopen both as soon as possible.
