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


MidnightWatcher's Blogspot

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.’
