Interactive: A Visual Guide Inside Japan's Reactors

This was recently shared by librarian Deborah Lazar; Lazar's son is living in Japan and she has been following the Japan earthquake, tsunami and resulting nuclear reactor disaster.

NPR's interactive graphic and video are worth viewing.

Earlier this morning, Twitter published a blog post detailing ways you can help with the relief efforts. Not only have they updated Japan’s mobile website with the latest information on the disaster, but they have also published a list of hashtags to tweet and/or follow related to the crisis.
Here are some key hashtags to remember:
  • #Jishin: focuses around general earthquake information
  • #Anpi: a hashtag for the confirmation of the safety of individuals or places
  • #Hinan: Evacuation information
  • #311care: a hashtag regarding medical information for the victims
  • #PrayforJapan: A general hashtag for support and best wishes for victims of the crisis
