Radioactive rain, wind expected for this week
From the Korean daily news, Jung Ang Ilbo
일 방사성 물질 남서풍 타고 온다
Korea is keeping a close eye on fallout from Japan’s crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, banning some produce from another prefecture near the disaster yesterday.
But it can’t stop the wind, and weather conditions tomorrow may bring radiation to Korea.
…On the weather front, rain has been forecast by the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA) for tomorrow, and as a high-pressure system moves to the south of Japan, a southwesterly wind will blow in the direction of the Korean Peninsula. As the wind will blow air directly from Japan, there is a high chance that radiation will also be carried along. The Korea Institute of Nuclear Safety (KINS) is expecting the radiation to be minimal in the 20 to 60 millimeters (0.8 to 2.4 inches) of rain expected on Thursday. Rainwater in Korea was found to be contaminated with radioactive isotopes from the Fukushima power plant over the weekend.
Please pray for us here in Korea.
