Japan: Staring Down Yet Another Nuclear Meltdown?

South China Morning Post is reporting on Super Typhoon Neoguri barreling down on Okinawa and heading straight for Japan. The problem is that several Japanese Islands in the potential track have nuclear reactors. With sustained winds rolling in at 155 miles per hour, it could be a potential problem.

The US military was today evacuating a nuymber of aircraft from its base on Okinawa.

A spokeswoman at Kyushu Electric Power Co said there are no specific plans related to this typhoon but that the company has plans in place throughout this year to protect the plants from severe weather.

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, crippled by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011, is on the other side of the country and is likely to see rain at worst.
