Breaking; Fukushima Daiichi No. 1

Kyodo News in Japan is running a breaking news ticker line indicating that the radiation level at Fukushima Daiichi No. 1 has now risen again and in fact exceeds the legal limit. Time stamp on this news brief is 0711 Tokyo time. At 6:18 PM Eastern in the US it is now only 7:18 AM in Japan, making this report only minutes old.

BREAKING / DEVELOPING.... 6:20 PM Sunday 3/13

Update, 6:30 PM Sunday 3/13 -- a five line 'breaking news' blurb just put up at Kyodo News indicates that this high rad level has been reported by TEPCO to the Japanese government (actually this is a required action) but there are unfortunately no further details. News as it develops.
