Japan's emperor in rare speech: Don't give up hope, Radiation already in Russia, could reach the US in 4 days
Japan's emperor in rare speech: Don't give up hope
Russia reported a slight increase in levels of radiation in Vladivostock, some 800 kilometres from Fukushima. Japan authorities say radioactivity around the quake-damaged nuclear plant is “significantly higher.”
Official: Japan's nuclear situation nearing severity of Chernobyl Nuclear crisis in Japan: This will dwarf Chernobyyl, FACT!
Fears that America could be hit by the nuclear fallout from the Japan earthquake dramatically increased today after the reactor hit by the tsunami went into 'meltdown'. Officials revealed fuel rods are melting inside three damaged reactors at the Fukushima plant, triggering fears of a serious radiation leak.
Scientists in the U.S. warned today of a 'worst-case scenario' in which the highly radioactive material could be blasted into the atmosphere and blown towards the West Coast of America. They said it could be picked up by powerful 30,000ft winds, carrying the debris across the Pacific and hitting America within four days.

Japan City Isn't Taking Chances on Radiation
The transportation ministry implemented a no-fly zone over the air in an 18-mile radius around the Fukushima Daiichi plant. "The planes that fly through that air could well be bathed by that too," said Takashi Kawase, special assistant to the director...
Japan battles to contain nuclear crisis and relieve quake survivors They seem to be fighting a losing battle against their nuclear disaster.
I don't care what they say. This is going to be worse than Chernobyl. Japan is an island and about the size of California. Location, location, location. I am going to check out the latest now. In every regard things are moving so fast. Hope for the best plan for the worst. That is what I absolutely expected Japan had done. They of all people should know better than to take chances with a nuclear reactor let alone many. I understand we were warning them from the early 70's that their safety systems were inadequate
