Japan Meteorological Agency forecast for Typhoon Vongfong, Oct. 12, 2014 at 6:50a UTC:

Forecast tracks show the center of Typhoon Vongfong over Fukushima Daiichi on Tuesday morning Oct. 14 (Japan, U.S., Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, and ensemble), Oct. 12, 2014:

DW, Oct. 10, 2014: Is Fukushima capable of withstanding a super typhoon?

Nuclear expert Michael Maqua, Oct. 10, 2014: “Expect radioactive isotopes… transported into the groundwater or the sea… The main risk of the typhoon is… mainly [at] reactor 3… rain water will [likely] mix with the contaminated water in the basements of the reactor buildings and thus more radioactivity could be washed to the sea.”
