BBC news just reported that the fire at the nuclear plant is out. Panic over hopefully.
Watching it on Sky News now.
Basically, there were 2 incidents.
One facility was on fire, but that was only in the steam generating room. That is what is actually out now.
It is the Fukushima Nuclear Plant which has problems with a reactor. They shut it down, but the water pumps have packed in and won't pump cooling
water to the reactor core, hence the evacution of 2000 locals.
Rueters are just reporting that water levels are 'dropping' - that REALLY sounds serious....
on a different note:
My best mate's brother lives in Tokyo with his wife. I've yet to hear anything from them.
