I just heard on CNBC that the US Government is sending planes to Tokyo to evacuate American citizens.
I guess the outlook isn't good.

If many of us got sick from this, and tried to sue, it would only end up being a payday for the lawyers. Millions of people would get a $250 check and you would have to accept that when entering the lawsuit. But the lawyers would make millions each.
IMO, lawsuits are the last thing we need to concern ourselves with. The safety of other people, and prevention of another incident should be more important.

US limit for volunteers averting major nuclear escalation: 500 mSv

Recorded by the helicopters at 1000 feet: 1000 mSv
We are all working hard to deny ignoranceedit on 16-3-2011 by zorgon because: (no reason given)

Because I saw some picture of the map showing the devastation caused by Chernobyl in the world and it seemed that there was a huge perimeter that was hit. So if this is worse than chernobyl perhaps it will touch more country that we think.
