I feel really, really sick. The weather guy on CNN was talking about the winds, he didn't say much, but his voice was shaking.
I think I'm going to be sick.
I saw it too. I almost started to post but didn't. Not only the vibe I got from him, but watching the radar images, all showing the weather going in a westerly direction. Just don't know what to say.
# 1009: "This is starting to look a lot like Chernobyl" Walt Patterson, an associate fellow with Chatham House, has told the BBC after seeing pictures of the explosion at the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear plant. "The nuclear agency says that they have detected caesium and iodine outside the unit, which certainly indicates fuel melting at the very least," he says. "Once you have melting fuel coming into contact with water, that would almost certainly be the cause of the explosion."
