Reports from Fukushima
Amy sent this link about the ongoing problems at the Japanese nuclear plant. The news reports have been dwindling away, but the disaster is far from being solved or contained. News reports over the weekend noted that the Japanese government had increased the exclusion zone by evacuating a town about 20 miles (30 km) from the plant. The US government recommended a 50 mile evacuation zone, if I remember correctly. Here is one report with the news from the weekend, skip to 6:20 for the details about Fukushima.
