Winds Blowing Japan Radioactivity over Ocean

Tuesday, 15 Mar 2011 06:48 AM

 

GENEVA - Winds are now dispersing radioactive material from the Japanese nuclear crisis over the Pacific Ocean, away from Japan and other Asian countries, the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) said on Tuesday.

But the United Nations agency warned that although effects have been offshore so far, weather conditions could change and it was closely monitoring satellite and other data.

"At this point, all the meteorological conditions are offshore so there are no implications, for Japan or other countries near Japan," Maryam Golnaraghi, chief of WMO's disaster risk reduction division, told a briefing in Geneva.
