Countries Affected by Radiation Caused by Japan's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Powerplant

Image Source is unknown
A US-NRC map circulating on the Internet is showing a very disturbing images on what countries will be affected by the radiation from Japan's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Powerplant. It shows forecasts of a nuclear fallout and spreading the radiation to the west coast of United States (USA) within 48 hours or two days. 

The validity of this map is still uncertain. Some say it's a hoax and is most likely is.

People staying in the possible affected areas should watch the news and take necessary precautions in the coming days.

Radiation Effects in the Philippines from Japan's Nuclear Powerplant

Update: This US-NRC map is a hoax. Please make sure to watch the news or listen to the radio for announcements on radiation dangers in your area. As of now, there is still no eminent danger.


Update March 31, 2011: Japan has Lost the Battle in Containing Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Reactors and is planning to entombed the nuclear powerplant with tonnes of concrete to seal the reactors and its nuclear fuel rods.

According to the NRC, this map is a hoax. It is a copy of a known hoax circulating the internet a few days ago. Please take it down.
Fallout from Japan is certainly a concern, but there is no valid information on this map, except for the general direction of drift.

Yup this is a confirmed hoax. Won't remove the post so that people would know that this map and others like it is a hoax.

I still advice people to watch TV or listen to the radio for updates on the Japan Nuclear powerplant crisis...
