Typhoon Jelawat?

Is that, like, bigger than a gigawatt?

And we we're worried about global warming.

Maybe people should just, like, not live in Japan?

Typhoon Roke, September 2011.

September is the season for typhoons in Japan.

I was assured nuclear power is safe by the many nuclear experts here on fark.

Ok so I am in a landlocked state and have to worry about tornadoes and just hearing about hurricanes on the news. Aren't typhoons and hurricanes the same thing?

A typhoon is about the same as a hurricane; it tends to be less organized than an Atlantic hurricane; but same kind of storm.

A tornado is an entirely different kind of storm altogether.

Yes, but I don't see how nuking Fukushima from orbit is going to make things better.

If not then fark it.

Typhoons blow in from the SOUTHWEST.

Fukushima is in the lower NORTHEAST of Honshu (the biggest Island of Japan).

Typhoons are always around and by the time they hit even Tokyo (100+ km south of Fukushima) they've lost their teeth.

Plus, how many of you live here? I thought so.

well being from Oklahoma I know all about tornadoes, but i remember someone somewhere saying hurricanes and typhoons were essentially the same. it just seemed odd that we have typhoon jelwat hitting Japan but 'hurricane' Miriam came ashore in Baja and tracked northeast. (which by the way gave us some much needed rain)

Yes.

Hurricanes originate in the Atlantic.

Typhoons originate in East Asia.

Monsoons originate around India.

All the same idea: strong winds, dark clouds, heavy rain.

So?

Seriously, so farking what? They've already had plenty of rain since the meltdown... All this will do is add more cooling medium to it, and not cause the Michael Bay fire hurricane with gators that everyone is worried about...

I live here and you are correct. It'll only be a Cat 1 by the time it gets here at around 3pm JST. It'll be a pretty good rain and windstorm, but nothing like it was when it transited Okinawa. That shiat picked up a car and tossed it.

Typhoon (northwestern Pacific) = hurricane (northeastern Pacific and Atlantic) = cyclone (south Pacific and Australia). All exactly the same type of storm.

What finally reaches Fukushima is going to be a middling tropical storm, nothing more.

Monsoons are completely different. Hurricanes/typhoons are discrete cyclonic storms; monsoons are in effect continent-scale sea breezes which shift seasonally rather than diurnally.
 
2012-09-29 09:36:48 PM  

common sense is an oxymoron: monsoons are in effect continent-scale sea breezes which shift seasonally rather than diurnally.


Then disregard my previous statement.

/I don't even care what a sea breeze is.
//Meteorology isn't the study of meteors. That's about all I need to know.

with nuclear events
We are quite capable of dealing
with it without worries
