Greatest Japan Quake in Modern History

Fukushima 1 nuclear plant explodes — video only,  details other than 20 km clearance zone — three explosions, fitful stabilization efforts underway in adverse circumstances

Prudent minimal precautions are to avoid downwind area up to 200 km, if not needed,  and to wear dust mask within 25km of plant or closer than 500 km downwind.  Anyone within these areas should take 150 micrograms of Iodine supplement daily.  Water and environment should be monitored to enable early detection of any dangerous levels of radioactive contamination.  Hazard levels should be posted where appropriate.  Update:  Fukushima evacuations underway 03/15/11
