    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.

    Perspective...

    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

    yes that would be one way to look at it.. but the amount of enriched and depleted uranium at the plant is a lot greater then what was in any test nuke.
    & parts of Nevada are fenced off due to radiation.

    if you look at the pacific ocean's currents in google they go straight from japan to cali.

    I was near Chernobyl when disaster struck in 1986 , and I was there for a while . I still have all my teeth , hair and a perfect health . This is nothing .
    I also wear a radioactive tritium keyring and a radioactive light source that will illuminate for 40 years . Radiation is my friend :))
