I’m trying to get some concrete information about what’s going on with the plant in Fukushima. I live about 250 miles north of the plant. I’ve been trying to sort through the articles about danger of future radiation exposure, but I can’t seem to get a bead on it all. Are things getting better or worse? What are the chances of a containment-rod meltdown at this point? Basically, is there a good chance radiation will spew into the air and contaminate half the country?
My parents are extremely concerned and want me home yesterday, but I can’t tell if that’s the American media hyping things, or if I should actually get out of the country.
Can someone help me make a decision?
