    That's a long way. Time distance and shielding is the best defense against Rad. We have 2 on our side.

    I thought that water was a barrier alone and that is why it is being used to cool the melting rods. My understanding is that water absorbs the radiation and the ocean alone will be enough to cancel it out. I believe evaporation of the water will help.

    But "WHY THE RUM?!"

    I agree however on the other hand, my daughter and the marching band is in Japan about 500 miles south of Tokyo so I am concerned for her safety

    It might just be enough enriched uranium to reach the us.... they had a reactor explode and their cooling tanks cought fire.
    The cooling tanks probably have over 10+ years worth of depleted uranium in them.

    Agree with the comments here that the distance and the rain will hopefully dissipate the radiation.

    This is one of the first times I've felt a huge need to donate to the red cross and help - earthquake, tsunami, volcano and nuclear meltdown!!

    My thoughts and prayers are with you, your daughter, her marching band, and the rest of Japan. When is she due to return home? Have you heard from her? Is she and the band safe?

    We touched off oooooooodles of atomic weapons in the Nevada desert. Granted, it didn't do anybody any good, but we didn't all fall over dead.

    the bank I work for has donated 100s of thousands to the Japan Red Cross. speaking of volcano, I live in Hawaii where Kilauea volcano has been erupting over 25 years. and we've been exposed to the fumes on a daily basis. when southern winds kick up its very very awful
