Nuclear contamination spewing from Kim’s overused and underdeveloped military testing facilities may soon blow towards the Japanese islands; raising new concerns over last month’s collapse of the tunnels used during North Korea’s hydrogen bomb blast.
Accuweather founder and Chairman Dr. Joel Myers told Fox News on Friday that prevailing winds in next week’s forecast may spread North Korea’s radioactive material to nearby countries, mainly Japan.
“As winds pick up out of the northwest over the next few days, it is possible that any radiation that leaks from the site [where the nuclear test took place] could be carried and dispersed across the Sea of Japan and even to the Japanese islands,” Myers said.
“One might speculate that North Korea conducted these nuclear tests purposefully on days with light wind conditions, so that any resulting radiation leakage would remain within its borders and would go undetected internationally,” he added.
“We know from other news reports that there has been an accident at the nuclear test site, and the situation that North Korea may have anticipated with radiation being contained within North Korea has changed,” said the weatherman.
