It appears that the fire at Fukushima #4 is out and containment is holding at #2. The radiation levels I was worried about last night are reported to be dropping. Looks like those scary precautions announced by the government were indeed precautions against something that might happen.
Apparently there is another false e-mail making the rounds, claiming to be a BBC report on health effects of radiation. Amazing what crawls out from under rocks in an emergency.
I'll probably write more today.
