I heard on the radio that the USS Ronald Reagan Carrier Strike Group passed through a radioactive cloud enroute to providing aid to Japan. Kind of makes you wonder about what's being reported about what's already happened at Fukushima.
Which is why I prefer BBC for my international news. We get extremely sanitized versions of what happens around the globe spoon fed to us. It's not censorship if it is just simply ommited is it?
Hopefully any "fallout" will end up in the Pacific before it blows over the US mainland or any islands. I'm more fearful of alpha and beta than gamma so would like to see that stuff in the ocean than on human skin, crops or living enviromments.
I was reviewing some vids of the one of the villages that got swept away. There were people walking away- yes walking away from the deluge approaching them. And they got swept under. I'd have my track shoes on...
Possibly they were geriatric and couldn't move very fast.
