Japan: earthquake, tsunami, nuclear emergency

What's worse than an 8.9 earthquake -- the strongest ever recorded in that country -- and a tsunami estimated between 13 and 23 feet? A nuclear reactor emergency, that's what.

Update: Make that five. Five nuclear reactors in 'emergency' status.

What is the pressure reading?
Do they have circulation?
Is the core covered?

What I am reading and hearing, Ryan, is that at least one of the units is venting "slightly" radioactive steam at this time.
