Best Japan Nuclear Crisis News Tracking Sites


CNN is absolutely terrible, first reporting on events sometimes 12 hours after they have occurred.  They still have not reported that a hydrogen explosion occurred in Unit #4, which has been widely reported in Japanese media since last night.

http://live.reuters.com/Event/Japan_earthquake2 is a real time site that includes links to breaking stories, posted both by Reuters staff and by readers.  The stories are up-to-the-minute fresh.  It is really the only site you need.  As stories and links come in here, you can build up a list of other sites to track.

http://jibtv.com/program/fullscreen.aspx?page=0 is NHK World TV Live, in English.  Another mirror is here http://live.nicovideo.jp/watch/lv43296023
