A once-in-a-decade typhoon threatenedJapan on Tuesday, disrupting travel and shipping and forcing precautions to be taken at the wrecked Fukushima nuclear power plant.

The typhoon is expected to sweep through northern Japan after making landfall and to pass near the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant, on the coast 220 km (130 miles) northeast of Tokyo, later on Wednesday.

The operator of the plant, Tokyo Electric Power Corp, which has been struggling to contain radioactive leaks, said it would cancel all offshore work and it would decide whether to continue work onshore after assessing the weather.

The utility will also take down cranes and secure all cables, hoses and machinery, a company spokesman said.

RADIOACTIVE WATER

Tokyo Electric said it would pump out the rainwater expected to fall into protective containers at the base of some 1,000 tanks storing radioactive water.

 

The radioactive water is a by-product of its jerry-rigged cooling system designed to keep under control reactors wrecked in a 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

I truly would hate living there now. I'm scared enough of the residual effects hitting us here in British Columbia, never mind living right in the middle of that radioactive mess. Wonder how our brothers and sisters are faring over there now. Definitely need our prayers. Nuclear disaster, especially on the scale of this one are horrifying!
