Fixed.

You do realize that this is a kookspiracist site where they believe the Haarp ring theory nuttiness and earthquakes are signs of clandestine gold mining right?

Ron Paul nutjobs also posting in the comments, "Weather Modification" in the sidebar.

re: #3 Randall Gross

Yes, but I think the event they are discussing in the video is worth looking into.

Here's the only legit News source I could find with an article on it, the others were kookspiracy and anti-nuclear fake news sites cross linking to each other and escalating each other's headlines. Read the comments at this report:

There is some news that some sort of uranium is stored at or near that site of the explosion. Reported on the FUKUSHIMA DIARY site. The quote is below
About the factory explosion of Iwakuni, @hanayuu and other people are concerned about the possible depleted uranium, so I called the prefectural government to confirm. They said, depleted uranium is stocked in the site, but it's not affected by the accident.

If it's depleated it's also Not radioactive? That's rather the point of DU weapons after all - heavy, dense, inflamable, but not radioactive.

re: #9 William Barnett-Lewis
Correct and its used in more than just projectiles.

Applications of depleted uranium

Due to its high density, about twice that of lead, the main civilian uses of DU include counterweights in aircraft, radiation shields in medical radiation therapy machines and containers for the transport of radioactive materials. The military uses DU for defensive armour plate.
DU is used in armour penetrating military ordnance because of its high density, and also because DU can ignite on impact if the temperature exceeds 600°C.

This story is a yawner even if true.

Depleted uranium is still radioactive, though rather weakly so. It's also an alpha emitter which makes it more dangerous if ingested.

Alpha emitters don't typically pass through skin just so people are aware, you are also more likely to die from heavy metal poisoning from ingesting DU than from radiation.

Being almost twice as heavy as lead, being not really on the same site as the explosion but "near" and being encased in containers makes me doubt any is going to make its way across the Pacific regardless.

Of all the things that would form a 'cloud' DU is almost the least likely. When White Sands MR did the open-air burn tests in the '80s, most of the DU fell out within yards of the pyres.

Nice to see this story debunked quickly and efficiently.
