More catastrophic events heading for poor Japanese people ..

They living in very bad moments, I think a lot of them hope that you are too ..


Powerful Typhoon Roke is on a collision course with Japan, with damaging winds and flooding rain on target to impact Tokyo and the Fukushima prefecture still reeling from last March's tsunami.
A large portion of southern Japan, including more than 1.2 million people in Nagoya city, have been urged to evacuate ahead of the storm, which will impact areas that were devastated by mudslides and flooding from deadly Typhoon Talas earlier this month.

Typhoon Roke Nears Japan on Track for Leaking Nuclear Plant


"The major difference between the two typhoons was Talas was slow-moving over the Kii peninsula, dumping rain in the same area, while Roke is fast moving," Kenji Okada, a forecaster at the Japan Meteorological Agency, said. "Roke is bringing strong gusts and dumping rain in a wide region."

Typhoon Roke brought evacuation orders and fears of floods to Nagoya city in central Japan today as it approached the main island of Honshu on a course toward the crippled Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant.
The eye of Roke, categorized as “strong” by the agency, was about 928 kilometers (575 miles) southwest of Tokyo at 3 p.m. local time today. It was packing wind speeds of 144 kilometers per hour (89 miles), with gusts of 216 kilometers per hour.

Typhoon Roke (2011-15) bringing another rain storm to Japan through Sep 22


Typhoon Roke (2011-15) is bringing another large amount of rain storm mainly to Kyushu, Awaji, Hyogo and especially Nagoya region. Evacuation orders were issued in some region. There are already many reports of flooding and landslide. Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) said the people should pay attention through tomorrow (9/21) in those affected area in Kinki & Tokai, and through 9/22 in North Japan and Hokkaido. YokosoNews is providing the latest and immediate updates on Twitter or Facebook as long as the threat lasts. Feel free to ask us a question.
As at 4pm on Sep 20, according to JMA, Typhoon Roke is located in the south of Kyushu, traveling north east. It has brought a large amount of rainfall to Kyushu, and Awaji Island, Hyogo. The heavy rainstorm is expected in Wakayama and Mie where it had already damaged by previous Typhoon Talas. The authorities are giving the caution to those unstable areas. The partial list of the places that are on the high alerts.

Man, they really are taking a beating. Hopefully this misses, cause the last thing we need right now is MOAR radiation...

There have been a whole bunch of "OMG deadly tornado heads to destroy Fukushima nuclear plant!!!1!1/!!!!" in the last few months and every one of them without exception has turned out to be nothing more than fearmongering headlines with no truth contained about the danger.

Lets check this one.

The JMA has a nice map showing the cource as it heads northward.

The table shows dates and expected wind speed...

Date --- WindSpeed
10:40 UTC, 20 Sep --- 80 knt
11:00 UTC, 20 Sep --- 80 knt
15:00 UTC, 20 Sep --- 80 knt
21:00 UTC, 20 Sep --- 80 knt
03:00 UTC, 21 Sep --- 75 knt
09:00 UTC, 21 Sep --- 65 knt

Its dying, and *it hasnt even reached Tokyo yet*
Fukushima is north of Tokyo, so you'd expect wind of much less, maybe 50 knots by the time it gets there.

But as they say, never let the truth get in the way of a (scary) story.

Japan is really taking some global damage recently, at least they get more of a heads up this time and have the equipment and people to deal with it already there.

So at the very least they are more prepared. Better seal up them reactors!

I feel so very sorry for the people of Japan. I think they are just so worn out by disaster, they are numb to the thought of "evacuating" once again. I know I would be. Also, they haven't been on the receiving end of the best thought out plans by their government in the recent past. Trust must be at an all time low for these poor people, shuffled from one evacuation center to the next, with no real solution in sight.

My prayers for Japan, and her people...

Yeah, I'm sure they just evacuate a million people just for #s and giggles over there in Japan.
Those Japs are some funny Mo Fo's.
They'll do anything for a laugh.

The headline, like most here on ATS, is a lie.
Its all about stars and flags, after all, not reality.

Japan are NOT evacuating 1.2 million people.
They are evacuating tens of thousands that are near rivers set to overflow due to heavy rain, and have just put forward an "advisory" to the others.

The other half of the OP's post about the nuclear reactors is sensationalist bollocks.

Why cant people just tell it the way it is, for once? The situation is bad enough without having to invent new fearmongering disaster stories. Obviously not interesting enough on its own. Doesnt sell enough papers. Does put enough viewers in front of the TV. Doesnt get enough stars and flags.

Mate it ain't dying.

It's all over the news here and just been announced on the news that it is building.
We shall see.

I am in Hamamatsu, which is 80km (at best guess) north of Nagoya. (South of Tokyo) and it's not raining here yet.
The wind is picking up here now but no rain as yet. There's quite a bit of flooding in Nagoya but with the recent typhoons a lot of Japan has seen a fair bit of flooding.
BTW this is typhoon No.15.

We were expecting the rain today but it hasn't crept in as yet.
We shall see..


BTW 80,000 people have been evacuated from homes in Nagoya.



Nagoya officials instructed about 80,000 people to evacuate Tuesday and issued an evacuation advisory to more than 1 million others as Typhoon Roke approached Honshu and threatened to cause further landslides and flooding in the Kii Peninsula area.

You're an insensitive jack@$$.
There's already massive flooding there.
Just wait until your home is flooded and destroyed.

Ok, now it looks like you're spreading disinfo. Either that or you are extremely ignorant.
They are evacuating 1.2 million people out of Tokyo. And the forecast does put it over Fukushima plants again.

Typhoon is now category 4 ..

Is very bad and dangerous situation there, typhoon looks big ..



As of Tuesday evening local time (late Tuesday morning EDT), Roke was located off the southern coast of Japan's main island, Honshu, several hundred miles southwest of Tokyo. Maximum winds were at 130 mph (210 kph), making the typhoon the equivalent of an extremely dangerous Category 4 hurricane.
Wind gusts at landfall will range between 100 and 120 mph (160 and 190 kph) along the coast between Nagoya and Tokyo, according to Andrews. Typhoon-force gusts of 70 to 90 mph (110 to 145 kph) are possible in Tokyo by Wednesday afternoon.

Perhaps the rain may help to decontaminate the land somewhat, but i suppose another release of a concentrated batch of radiation , perhaps due to storm damage of cooling apparatus or flooding etc,could also blow back on them too.
There is already much to do on the decontamination of the initial releases.
We can only watch and pray for their safety........

Sorry, I wasnt clear on that. Near the bottom of the chart in my earlier posting, the wind speeds were dropping as it reached Tokyo. I was saying that as it moved north past Tokyo towards Fukushima, it is dying.
Right now, as you say, no, it isnt.

Exactly.
1.2 million have not been evacuated.
80000 is serious enough to warrant a discussion. Why cant that be enough by itself for discussion without a false thread title. Its bad news in and of itself.

Oh they have GOT to be kidding. Is God just on the Warpath this month? What else? What else can possibly be added to this last 2 weeks of September?!

RSOE Global Disaster Tracking Map

I sincerely hope those walls I saw in pictures a few days ago going up are about done. If you look at the above map. scroll over to Japan and zoom down to the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Plant, that green line a mile or two to the west is the projected path for the center of this Typhoon or Tropical Storm perhaps...if it's weakened by the time it gets there.

They had MONTHS to get those piles of radioactive rubble secured somehow before the season started and these storms arrived. Damn them all (pardon my French) if Fuku gets any worse for their lack of starting this work MUCH sooner.

I know the focus is on Tokyo...but look a bit north, folks... Tokyo isn't the major potential problem.

The storm has already triggered floods and could reach the Tokyo area by Wednesday afternoon. Officials have ordered or advised 1.3 million people to evacuate, including 80,000 people in Nagoya.

“As there is a large amount of rain expected from Typhoon Roke, we ask citizens to pay attention to weather information and we once again ask people to follow evacuation recommendations and orders when they are given,” said Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Osamu Fujimura."

"ordered or advised 1.3 million people to evacuate, including 80,000 people in Nagoya."
