We have many posters here from the west coast, including myself. I'm getting the notion that none of us much appreciate people making this # up at us.

I would like to say thank you for taking the time to post....and I would agree that there is no deadly cloud coming over to the states even if the reactor suffered full meltdown.
Some people just seem to like to try to spread panic and i hope that you can do everything possible to help the people that are suffering in Japan right now...they have lost so much and need all our help and support.

Supposedly some of the rods are melting
right now. I do not know enough about the production of nuclear power to know exactly what this means.
CTV is pretty good at getting facts and not fear-mongering.The link is below.
The level of coolant water dropped precipitously Monday inside the most badly damaged reactor, leaving the uranium fuel rods completely exposed just hours after a hydrogen explosion tore through a nearby building housing another reactor.
The explosion at the Dai-ichi plant's Unit 3, the second in three days, sent a towering cloud of smoke into the air and injured 11 workers.
"Units 1 and 3 are at least somewhat stabilized for the time being," said Nuclear and Industrial Agency official Ryohei Shiomi. "Unit 2 now requires all our effort and attention."
If the unit's uranium core melts down, it could result in an explosion and a major leak of radiation.
