You may have seen on American news about trouble at a Japanese nuclear power plant stemming from the earthquake. This has been on Japanese news a good deal, and every station we get has nothing but earthquake news, so there has been a lot of news about that. The truth is, there is trouble at two plants, and they've evacuated everyone for ten kilometers around each.
There was a huge explosion at one plant, with many injured, though none reported dead. They showed it over and over on the news. However, the minister in the government in charge of the situation informed us that there was no known radiation problem. However, other sources have been reporting possible fuel leaks, so it's an ongoing situation.
