|Typhoon Man-yi Fukushima Alert|
I have added another livecam to the show and if you also turn on the TBS JNN livecam stream you will get the audio of the wind blowing and heavy rain. The new Futaba livecam is showing us the situation outside Fukushima. You can see the powerlines going to the Fukushima plant when the camera is facing away from the intersection.
And already we see how the trees are blowing. There have been cars going by from time to time. I guess this is either workers or personel in the area trying to keep the water out of certain areas. There have been reports of that they have been increasing patrols to make sure contaminated water does not overflow in the heavy rain.

Tokyo Electric Power Company workers have placed weights on large cranes used to move debris around the reactor building to keep them from being toppled by strong winds.
They also attached ropes to outdoor piping and pumps that are used to inject water into the reactors.
The operators are strengthening patrols to prevent rain from entering and overflowing the basement of turbine buildings and the underground tunnel where highly contaminated water has accumulated.
They found water overflowing from a fence around storage tanks near the Number 4 reactor on Sunday afternoon. TEPCO officials are inspecting the leaked water to determine if it's contaminated.
The workers are dismantling a wastewater tank from which highly radioactive water is suspected to have leaked last month.
TEPCO says it plan to continue the work on Monday, but may decide to stop if the weather worsens.
