Plume forecast for Japan: 3/26

Plume will move offshore toward the southeast throughout the day and evening of Saturday March 26 Japan Standard Time (JST).  High-resolution (5 km) meteorological model forecast by the Naval Research Laboratory’s COAMPS shows the plume directed over the ocean Saturday.

From the NYT: Reactor 3 appears to have sustained more damage to the containment than expected. In the coming days, on top of the uncontrolled emissions there will be venting of gas from the reactors. A voluntary evacuation has been called for those sheltering in place in the outer zone (12-19 miles) in order to alleviate “difficult living conditions”.
