Continuing Crisis

I have to admit that I've spent much of the past few days riveted to news coverage of the emerging crisis at the nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan. Given the demands of work and family it would be hopeless for me to try to keep up with every twist and turn in events there... but I have been following enough to know that the latest developments are not good. Very not good.
New fire hits Japan nuclear plant

Fire has again broken out at the quake-stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in northern Japan.

The blaze has struck reactor four, where spent fuel rods are kept. The plant has already been hit by four explosions, triggering radiation leaks and sparking health concerns.
I have found the BBC's coverage to strike a good balance between speed, accuracy, and depth, but you can follow the story from a host of news sources, obviously.

I'll try to turn my mind back to economic issues in the next day or two...
