Those are early reports. With the nuke plant shutdowns, lots of people are out of power temporarily, and more news will be coming in for days.
Just read all people within 10Km radius of the nuclear power station were evacuated.I wish Japan the very best, and mostly that they wouldn't get a 2nd Chernobyl to top all the damages already suffered.
A news update:http://www.asahi.com/national/update/0312/TKY201103120436.htmlGoogle translate result According to Canon, Utsunomiya plant to produce lenses for SLR cameras (Utsunomiya), which have ceased operation due to the roof of a building and falls. For Canon has a large plant in the region among the worst affected of the earthquake was, it might affect the production of high quality lenses. This plant has been out a dozen injured.
Right now, I think my concern is with the people affected by the earthquake and flooding, and displacement due to the nuclear reactor failures.Yet another nuclear reactor is failing, and a last ditch effort to cool the reactor that has a partial meltdown by flooding it with seawater will take at least another day, and if it doesn't work, it could be a much larger issue yet.
