The loss of life, radioactive fallout is certainly more important than the market, but the markets are hit. The news on these reactors does not seem good, that's for damn, sure.

TOKYO—An early decline in Japanese shares picked up speed Tuesday afternoon, with the main index skidding 14.4% as the country's prime minister warned of a high risk of elevated levels of radiation from a reactor at the Fukushima nuclear-power plant after another explosion earlier in the day.

The benchmark Nikkei Stock Average was recently at 8257.56, its lowest level since April 2009 and at risk of further weakness as the Nikkei June futures contract continued to drop. The declines were exacerbated by news of a fire at Tokyo Electric Power's No. 4 reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in northeastern Japan and reports that radiation has spiked near the No. 3 reactor. The market was quickly dropping toward key support at 8000 points.
"Substantial amounts of radiation are leaking in the area," Prime Minister Naoto Kan said on television.

I have friends in HK and Shenzhen. They haven't had any troubles with their cellular network or VPN proxies. My friend in Shenzhen is using China Unicom. Which service provider are you using, Sentrix?
The real concern now is whether those 4 reactors are going to fully melt and send a plume of radioactive particles all over Japan. The prevailing winds usually blow in a NE direction, so we can only hope they don't change direction. The Koreas and NE China seem more in danger than anywhere else.
I'm afraid this is going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better......not to mention it's likely to last for months. Where the hell are all those displaced people going to live???
