In the Pacific, are radioactive rain

On Wednesday night the cyclone crossed Japan. In the north of. Honshu were heavy precipitation. In tsunami-affected Sendai port fell to 20 mm of rain and wet snow. It did not help the molten power unit "Fukushima-1". Moreover, the impact of the cyclone swept suspended in the atmosphere of radioactive materials and, to cap problems, partly laid siege to the ground along with precipitation. According to Roshydromet, information on the number and composition of the radioactive release yet. Therefore assess the extent of contamination is not possible. Probably the concentration decreased, but increased area of distribution. Currently, intense radioactive clouds cyclone left Japan and moved to the north-east, at a respectful distance from the Kuril Islands. However, the cyclone is gaining momentum and growing in size. With such a trajectory northwest periphery it will affect the Kuriles. The islands are expected snow storm and gusty north wind. In the future area of precipitation will spread to the east coast of Kamchatka, and more — in the south-eastern regions of Chukotka. According to the calculations of Roshydromet shown in the figure, the radioactive cloud close to the borders of Russia on March 18-19. It is clear that the radiation dose to get established Pacific. In particular, in the Aleutian Islands of radioactive rain will not be avoided. However, the north-eastern regions of Russia may also be in a contaminated area.
