Do you have any information on whether Japan is receiving enough assistance to handle the evacs? The logistics of evacuation are becoming the main concern, I believe.

I cant find the answer to the question of...Why on earth havnt the reactors been concreted before now? and why on earth are they not starting now, even if late? They have no options left !
Theres something not quite right here.
We have not yet hit the point of no return. But when we do, I think the only option left is this one.
The Governor of the Fukushima region has criticised the official handling of the evacuation. Yuhei Sato said the people of Fukushima had reached the limits of "fear and anxiety". He said that if an evacuation was necessary, it would be difficult. "How do we move people, transport people?" he said. He said they had secured the "minimum food" but that daily supplies are all in shortage.

That is what they did. It just wasn't enough... by the time aid got there, the plants were too hot to effectively evacuate the area without the missions being suicidal.
Would you or I have done any different?
