BBC Newsflash radiation leak in Japan might cause acid rain

Nuclear Power Plant blast / radiation leak in Japan might cause acid rain: BBC Text Message Hoax

The Fukushima Daiichi (Dai-ichi) Nuclear Power Plant blast in Japan is now causing worries to the people here in the Philippines.

Two hydrogen explosions happened at the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant. The first one was last Saturday, a day after the earthquake, then another one just today, Monday.

AssociatedPress posted on Youtube a video of the recent explosion. Watch!

Now, the Filipinos are feeling worried after 2 warning messages circulate thru text or SMS.

One text message says that the nuclear power plant blast or the radiation leak in Japan might bring radioactive clouds to the Philippines and pour acid rain.

The text message warns the people not to go out when it's raining because of the dangerous acid rain. "WARNING: 4:30 in the afternoon, sumabog ang isang nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan. Kapag umulan daw mamaya at bukas, wala daw lalabas. Kapag lalabas ka, siguraduhing hindi mabasa ng ulan dahil delikado ito at posibleng masunog balat nyo, makalbo o magka-cancer. HAVE MERCY. Pls pass!"

Then the other text message is allegedly a news flash from BBC News in the UK. It says, "BBC Newsflash! Japan gov't confirms explosion, radiation leak at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plants. Asian countries should take necessary precautions. Remain indoors first 24 hrs. Close doors or windows. Swab neck skin with betadine were thyroid area is, radiation hits thyroid first. Take extra precautions. Radiation may hit Phil. starting 4PM today. Pls send to your love ones. Prevention is better than cure. So no more harm to be more cautious esp. for our health. God bless us all."
