FOR THOSE IN JAPAN:
As I contact my friends there, the biggest complaint that I hear in regards to communication is that the Japanese news stations are not giving out all the information. I'm not surprised by this, as the Japanese government is notorious for down playing events as to keep order, peace, and harmony among its people. Respectable idea, but this just ain't the time. Below is a list of American and non-Japanese news outlets so you all can see what is going on. I hope this helps.
