Saw a report today, two girls who were at Tokyo Disneyland saying how "scary" the earthquake was, lol. Only 5 people in Tokyo died, but there are over 10,000 dead in Miyagi and N. Fukushima prefecture. Just sayin'...
Even though we're only 35km (26 miles) south of the nuke plant, I'm not "too" worried about it. I was, but not anymore. I had one tank of gas and if we had left, we wouldn't have been able to get back due to gas not being available. In fact, been seeing reports of that now.
Here's probably the best article I've seen on the subject of the nuke plant situation:

Not yet, actually there were 2 more explosions at reactor-3. More and more problems appearing. TEPCO did really bad job at maintenance of nuclear power plants, seems money for them was most important.
