Wow. Good find Oric!!

p.s. It looks like all the Fukushima radiation for today will be redirected straight to Canada.

You're Welcome, Canucks!

These are surface winds. A map of high altitude winds that would carry Fukushima radiation across the Pacific would look very different.

This is a jet stream map, updated every six hours.
