Main Question or Discussion Point

What exactly is a "radiation cloud", as mentioned currently in the news, in a physics sense? Is it just a bunch of super excited water vapor? Is it actually radioactive isotope particles? How stable is it? I can't seem to find any info on the term.

Yes, for the most part it is water vapor carrying radioactive particles. As for the half-life, someone else will have to help with that....
