The SimplyInfo research team discusses typhoon Jelawat headed for Fukushima Daiichi:
The model shows it being down to a tropical storm by the time it reaches the Tohoku region but winds of up to 72 mph could still cause problems at the plant.
If winds are strong enough it could damage unit 1′s tent or cause debris on unit 3 to move. During previous storms TEPCO seemed worried about rainwater flooding the two open spent fuel pools. [...] Unit 3′s pool is the only one open to rainfall.
The typhoon could still take a path that has it more out to sea or could be further degraded by traveling over land.
