Typhoons spread Fukushima fallout, study warns

AFP - Typhoons that hit Japan each year are helping spread radioactive material from the Fukushima nuclear disaster into the country's waterways, researchers say.

Contaminated soil gets washed away by the high winds and rain and deposited in streams and rivers, a joint study by France's Climate and Environmental Science laboratory (LSCE) and Tsukuba University in Japan showed.

The study is not talking about moving contaminated ocean water at a higher rate.  Instead, it's talking solely about contaminated soil being washed into the ocean.
