I lived on the other side of Fukushima, but by other side, we have to make it clear that Iowa (my home state) is 10 times the size of Fukushima. I actually came very close to getting a job in Futaba, the town that is literally ground zero for what is going on right now.
Anyway, yes I am in Tokyo, having previously lived relatively near where all this is going on. Tokyo is 220 km south, 130 miles of there.
A meltdown seems a definite possibity. As far as I know the meltdown could eventually lead to an explosion of the nuclear material. I have read up, as far as I know this plant has 10 times the power producing potential of Cherynobyl. Whether that means 10 times the dangerous radiation, I have no idea.
