The wind near a quake-damaged nuclear complex
in northeast Japan, which has released radiation into the atmosphere, will blow from the northwest and out into the Pacific
Ocean on Wednesday, a weather official said.
The wind speed will get stronger in the afternoon, blowing as fast as at
12 meters (39.4 ft) per second, said the official at the Japan Meteorological Agency in Fukushima prefecture where the plant
The Fukushima Daiichi plant, run by Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO), is about 240 km (150 miles) north of Tokyo
on the country's northeast coast.
Fukushima nuke plant situation ‘worsened considerably'

at the quake-hit Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant in northeastern Japan "has worsened considerably," the Institute
for Science and International Security said in a statement released Tuesday.
Referring to fresh
explosions that occurred earlier in the day at the site and problems in a pool storing spent nuclear fuel rods, the Washington-based
think tank said, "This accident can no longer be viewed as a level 4 on the International Nuclear and Radiological Events
scale that ranks events from 1 to 7."
Noting that a level 4 incident involves "only local
radiological consequences," it said the ongoing crisis is "now closer to a level 6, and it may unfortunately reach
a level 7" - a worst case scenario with extensive health and environmental consequences.
Panic Buying: Stocks Of Potassium Iodide Exhausted In U.S
. Paul Joseph Watson

We are getting numerous reports from readers that stocks of potassium iodide, which is used
to protect the body against the effects of nuclear fallout, are completely sold out across the United States. Checks of health
supplement websites in the U.S. also confirmed that stocks are completely exhausted.
With the threat of radioactive particles
from the stricken Fukushima nuclear reactor complex drifting towards the United States on prevailing easterly winds, many
Americans are attempting to protect themselves by acquiring potassium iodide, which protects the thyroid gland from radiation
and cancer caused by radioactive iodine.
U.S. manufacturers of potassium iodide have been swamped with demand, reports
CNN. One Williamsburg, Virginia-based company "Has received hundreds, if not thousands, of calls from potential buyers
in Asia as well as repeat U.S. customers suddenly seeking to replenish their stockpiles of the drug."
The U.S. government has said that it will not stockpile any further supplies of
potassium iodide, which has only increased demand from Americans who are struggling to find it anywhere.
government has never purchased enough to meet that standard. There is currently only enough of the medication available for
populations living within 10 miles of nuclear reactors in the United States, according to U.S. officials," an amount
Alan Morris, president of Anbex Inc, slams as being completely insufficient.
Morris points to the fact that the fallout
from the April 1986 Chernobyl disaster, which was spread all around the northern hemisphere, led to over a million deaths
because of radiation poisoning according to some estimates, causing thyroid cancer in children living in surrounding countries.
"U.S. drug stores are reporting a sudden increase in sales of over-the-counter anti-radiation pills, despite assurances
from health officials that Americans are not at risk from Japanese nuclear reactors," reports Fox News.
than ethical private retailers are exploiting the shortages to charge nearly $300 for one pack of tablets, which normally
retail at around the $15 level.
It is important to stress that high-strength potassium iodide of the 130 mg variety shown
in the image above should only be taken in a nuclear fallout emergency and not under any other circumstances.

cattle movements and food safety standards as far away as England and Wales.
Here are a couple of emails we received today;
I went to the Whole Foods Market in Arlington, Texas
last night to get a bottle of kelp and they were out and totally out of potassium iodide. They would not get a shipment, if
any, by this Friday.
Are people in this area more aware of what is going on in Japan than the people in Austin? I hope
Good Luck finding any Potassium Iodide in the United States! Went on
the internet and contacted all manufacturers, suppliers, health food stores, etc. NO ONE HAS ANY!
Just says temporarily
out of stock on all websites.....What little was available is gone and the earliest they expect it is sometime possibly next
month or the following month! Iosat manufactured and distributed by Anbex Inc. doesn't even have it available.Good God...
how would we get it if we needed it now?
Think the Government is going to help get it to us? Don't think so! No one is
saying anything about this little problem!
