On September 17, 2012, a powerful Typhoon Sanba batters North and South Korea.
It brought high waves, strong wind, heavy rains, caused flood, damaged roads and buildings.
This is a disaster.
A powerful Typhoon Bolaven pounded South and North Korea at the end of August, 2012.
After lashing Okinawa Island in Japan, the powerful Typhoon Bolaven pounds South Korea on Tuesday with strong winds and heavy rain.
9 people were killed by the typhoon in South Korea.
More than 80 families were left homeless because of floods or storm damage.
The typhoon knocked down hundreds of trees, destroyed power cables and caused blackouts and nearly 200 flights were canceled, 860 hectares (2,130 acres) of farmland were flooded and 32 ships were damaged.
I think that nuclear power is very dangerous.
Nuclear power is very dangerous because if there is an accident at the power plant, it can cause nuclear radiation like what is now happening in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
Nuclear radiation is dangerous because the effect can be something like the effect of a nuclear weapon or an atomic bomb.
And if a nuclear power plant exploded, it can be as bad as being hit by an atomic bomb.
Nuclear power plant is an efficient and clean way to produce electricity but it can also become a disaster of mass destruction that can kill and harm lots and lots of people, animals and plants.
It will take a very, very long time to get rid of the nuclear radiation from the atmosphere, soil and the water system.
Go Green 🙂
I think we should use more wind turbine and solar power to produce electricity.
