it depends on the ocean currents. i think most of the drift is not down the coast HOWEVER we just have no clue really. any storm... including
the typhoon that just directly hit japan a week ago... could spread the radiation to affect more people. typhoons hit there pretty frequently.
this one just happens to be the worst one of the year.
Agree with this pasiphae, Pretty sure the fuku spread works it way towards Hawaii/US & Canadian West coast, but yeah, by now a lot would be dispersed
all over, but I'm not sure if it would be enough to cause damage..
It does seem they got lucky with this storm, seems like it's not the worst in recent years, just started off as the biggest - from
The region is regularly pummelled by tropical storms. Typhoon Bopha left a trail of destruction in the southern Philippines last year, triggering
floods and landslides that left more than 1800 dead and missing and displaced nearly one million people.
In August 2009, Typhoon Morakot killed about 600 people in Taiwan, most of them buried in huge landslides in the south, in one of the worst natural
disasters to hit the island in recent years.
I haven't seen any articles mentioning fatalities just yet, so looks like they got lucky with this one!
