‘Once-In-A-Decade Event’: Monster Typhoon Set To Pummel Fukushima, Japan


By Joe Kovacs, WND – “Packing heavy rains and winds up to 125 miles per hour, a monster typhoon called a ‘once-in-a-decade event’ by the Japan Meteorological Agency is on track to pummel the Tokyo area, home to the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant.

‘It is the strongest typhoon in 10 years to pass the Kanto region (Tokyo and its vicinity),’ Hiroyuki Uchida, the weather agency’s chief forecaster, told a news conference.

‘It is expected to have a great impact on the traffic systems in the metropolitan area during commuting hours,’ he said.

The storm is causing atomic concerns since the plant has seen a rash of radioactive water spills in recent months, trying to keep its melted reactor cores cool.

The Wall Street Journal says many are ‘worried about what will happen to the plant and the thousands of tons of radioactive water stored in tanks there.’

‘We are making preparations for proper management of contaminated water,’ said a spokesman for Tokyo Electric Power Co. ‘We will patrol places that could have inflows of water (from the storm).’

He indicated cables and hoses have been bundled together, while ground and offshore works have been stopped, as the brunt of the storm hits on Wednesday.

According to Agence France-Presse, the power company announced 114 gallons of polluted water had spilled from a tank as workers tried to remove rainwater dumped at the plant by recent typhoons.

‘It has admitted contaminated water may well have flowed into the sea,’ AFP reported. ‘Japan’s atomic watchdog summoned the president of TEPCO for a public dressing-down for sloppy standards at the plant after the incident. The nuclear plant was badly damaged by the tsunami that hit in March 2011. Critics say it remains in a fragile state and at the mercy of extreme weather or other natural hazards.'” Read more.

Flashback: Yale Professor: Fukushima Is ‘A World-Wide Disaster Of The Most Epic Proportions Just Waiting To Happen’ – “A Yale Professor is compelling the world to wake up from its nuclear slumber and face some cold-hard facts, ‘All of humanity will be threatened for thousands of years’ if the Fukushima Unit 4 pool can’t be kept cool. Your worries about eating cesium-contaminated fish from the Pacific Ocean are grounded in fact, but this is a world-wide disaster of the most epic proportions just waiting to happen.” Read more.

Flashback: From Horrible To Horrendous: You Won’t Believe What’s Going On At Fukushima Right Now – “Tepco Has No Idea How to Stabilize the Reactors You’ve heard bad news about Fukushima recently. But it’s worse than you know. The Wall Street Journal notes that radiation levels outside the plant are likely higher than inside the reactor … The reactors have lost containment, and experts have no idea where the nuclear cores are. And the problems which have been detected at ground-level are only the tip of the iceberg.” Read more.

Flashback: Expert: Fukushima Disaster 1,000 Times Worse Than IAEA Estimate – “Arnie Gundersen, chief engineer at Fairwinds Associates, has called the new estimate that the Japanese nuclear tragedy released 20-30 times the amount of cesium that has been reported. Calling this a ‘game changer,’ he has estimated 100,000 deaths more than widely released Fukushima data. ‘When there’s no liquid inside the containment, there’s no capture of the cesium. So whatever cesium was inside that containment was leaking out of the containment.” Read more.

    They are “monitoring” the amount of waste (radioactive) water being “spilled” into the ocean. There is NO containment! Just a “regulated” amount of radioactive water being released into the Pacific Ocean. This Typhoon is simply going to allow more than usual to be released!

    Hmmm…??? I wonder what this means to us, living here on the Pacific Coast?

      Yes, and for that matter, what about the impact on all the islands in the Pacific? Or, for that matter what will this mean for the entire world??? I’d say God is really trying to get our attention! That’s for sure!!!

      Ach come ON!

      If they dumped the entire lot into the sea, there would be nowhere near the radioactivity released by the nuclear tests that were done there from the late 40s onwards.

      How big is the Pacific? How many BILLIONSof gallons?

      Any you are worried about a couple of hundred pints of “contaminant!?”

        “Oh! My BAD!!!” How soon we forget! You’re absolutely…right! There is NOTHING to be worried about! I’ll bet there will be a lot of tuna this year, too! huh! ALL those fish dieing in the middle of the Pacific is just coincidence! How foolish of me!
