This...there IS no reading up on it. All I can do is hit F5 repeatedly here, as its the only place I trust.
So far it looks like BBC is trustworthy. CNN is laggy, and if you're wearing a tinfoil hat, liable to be manipulated more so. Fox, is more sensationalist then fix things as they go along, and that's putting it kindly.
so, don't panic over anything till you get solid confirmed news.
TBCH regardless everyone's gonna get at least a lil radiation from this incident eventually. I'm gonna get some potassium iodine pills and some water 2mrw, but besides that I'm not terribly frightened and will take it as it comes.
