9.13am The New York Times has created a great Q&A on the nuclear emergency at Fukushima and the humanitarian crisis elsewhere in Japan. It answers questions ranging from, Why is the media giving such hysterical coverage to Fukushima?  Is there a danger in interacting with people who have been exposed to radiation from this disaster? and, I keep seeing the phrase “shut down” in reference to the nuclear reactors at Fukushima, but clearly they are not shut down as they are still generating tremendous energy in the form of heat. How is a nuclear reactor “turned off”?

【東日本大震災】GNDF AIRDOME/石巻にエアドームを設営しました

[【GATE】東日本大震災支援/LOVE_ISHINOMAKI] 2011.04.02

先日、マット監督が自ら運転し、石巻へ運んだエアドーム・・・。

石巻のGNDFボランティアによって、日本初の、大型エアードームが設営されました!
GNDF volunteers erected the first giant airdome ever used in Japan.
午前中からテントを広げ始め、出来上がったのが夜8時過ぎだったそうです。
photo03.JPG
設営までには、たくさんのボランティアの方々のお力添えがありました。
・エアドーム設営の様子  Blowing up
ドームの完成後は、支援物資の保管場所や、数百人の人々のための
地震に強い避難所になります。
After the dome is complete, it can hold 800m2 of emergency supplies, offer shelter and housing for hundreds of people, and is completely earthquake proof.
photo02.JPG
30m幅のドームではありましたが、GNDFボランティアスタッフはテントの周辺に沿って、1時間以上かけて総重量15トンの砂袋を並べました。
With a span of 30 meters, GNDF volunteers laid 15 tons of sand bags along the perimeter in just over an hour.

きつい仕事は、日本初のエアードームのスケールと大きさに驚いていた
ボランティア達の、友情の絆をよりいっそう深めるきっかけとなりました。
The hard work became a bond of friendship among volunteers who were amazed at the scale and size of Japan’s first airdome.

完成です! Completion

ちょうど6時間後の午後8時に、ドームが出来あがりました!15メートルの高さがあり、
何キロ先からも姿がみえます。
After just 6 hours, the dome was fully complete and work had begun inside.. It stands 15 meters  which is large enough to be seen from miles around.

エアードームが、よりいっそう皆さまのお役に立つことができるように、

現地スタッフと共に
今後も検討していきます

宮城・石巻に大型ドーム設置

4月7日 14時7分 

宮城県石巻市で、全国から集まっている大勢のボランティアの活動を支援するため、空気で膨らませた大型のドームが設置されました。

このドームは、宮城県石巻市に集まるボランティアたちの拠点となっている石巻専修大学のキャンパス に、アメリカのNGOが設置しました。大型ドームはポリ塩化ビニール製で、6時間ほどかけて空気を送り込むと、直径30メートル、高さ15メートルの大き さに膨らみました。ドームにはおよそ600人を収容することができるということで、全国から集まっている大勢のボランティアの打ち合わせや宿泊のほか、大 量の救援物資の保管などに利用される予定です。また、骨組みがないので、地震が起きても倒壊するおそれがなく、避難所としても利用することができるという ことです。早速ドームに入ったボランティアの1人は「とても大きいです。今まで広いスペースがなかったので、有効に活用していきます」と話していました。 ドームを提供したNGO、GNDファンドのショーン・ビクトリアさんは「ボランティアの人たちにさまざまな用途で利用してほしいです」と話していました。
