This area just cant catch a break, and unfortunately for the world, when that next "big" natural disaster hits that area, the Fukishima reactor will be at the point of no return... Who knows, it may already be there....
Well.......hold on Its true that its rare and odd...... But was it anywhere NEAR the plant? Thats the big question.......... I could say OH NOZ tornado in Dallas, but it might not have come anywhere near anything else..... Must remain objective before scaring people

The tornado damage in Japan last night was part of a weather system that did not leave Fukushima prefecture unscathed. Worse is the likelihood nuclear contamination has been picked up and further spread through the tornado affected area.
The tornado damage most affected Ibaraki Prefecture, which is located just below Fukushima and just above Tokyo. This underlines the incredible risk of having an ongoing disaster like Fukushima just smoking away like a train at the station, day after day after day, waiting for the next big tornado. The situation is not under control. The risk of the catastrophe becoming far worse is huge and the risk of course is not just to Japan.
Should Unit 4 collapse a mass extinction event could result.
Consider too just how many US nuclear power plants are situated in tornado prone areas.edit on 6-5-2012 by Tallone because: (no reason given)
One bad weather event that overcomes what they have done to stabilize those ruins and the original event will seem rather limited by comparison. The original event didn't have the literal reactor cores and inner core rooms exposed to the open blue sky. Lets see a big Typhoon and ...geeze...Tornado..run down that row ruins for the 4 lower reactor cores and I think Game Over would be an accurate statement for most of Japan and the Western Pacific that lay in direct currents to that piece of beach. I'm no expert...but some things don't require experts. A High School education is more than enough to understand material data sheets on this material....weather patterns..and what it all means if it's in the open air and spread all over. S/F for the article OP and I hope we're all just being paranoid on this concern for the long term.
