It seems like a distant memory in today's fast moving digital world of tweet and Facebook updates and smartphone notifications but it was just March 11th when a massive earthquake devastated a part of northern Japan, creating a tsunami that damaged the Fukushima nuclear reactors that resulted in a devastating Chernobyl like meltdown.
Now, Japan has to contend with a typhoon headed in that general direction. It's something we need to watch carefully. A powerful force of nature like a hurricane or typhoon is nothing to scoff at even for something like a nuclear power plant. We all thought that it could have withstood a tsunami.
Ma-on, named of the typhoon, will make landfall on Tuesday local time and is rated to be pretty strong.
