Strongest typhoon in 10 years heading for Fukushima ‹ Japan Today: Japan News and Discussion

A typhoon described as the “strongest in 10 years” was closing in on Japan late Tuesday, on a path that will take it toward the precarious Fukushima nuclear power plant.

Typhoon Wipha, packing winds of nearly 200 kilometers per hour near its center and bringing heavy rains, was in the Pacific south of Japan, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

The storm was moving north at 35 kilometers per hour, according to the agency.

It was forecast to reach an area off the Tokyo metropolitan area by early Wednesday, and later in the day would be off the coast of Fukushima, where the crippled nuclear power plant sits.

Comment: Maybe all the rain and those strong wind will help spread that radiation around a little more. That way the leaks aren't so easy to spot and then TEPCO and the Abe Administration can just pretend they don't exist anymore. Worse yet, maybe this will cause the one reactor building that's on the verge of collapse, the very same one where all those spent plutonium rods are sitting in a cooling tank and too dangerous to move, will finally topple over and cause the nuclear waste to reach critical mass and finish the job of destroying the Japanese as a people altogether! Nah, we couldn't be that unlucky... could we???
