NEKKEI IS DOWN OVER 13% at this moment and plunging lower. This is leaking into all world wide markets. As of this writting there are FOUR reactors either on fire or in some process of melting down. The prevailing wind is currently pushing wind and debris towards Tokyo. Pray to God that this explosion is minimal until tomorrow where the prevailing wind is predicted to change to out to sea. PRAY TO GOD TONIGHT PLEASE! I have friends who live outside(south) of Tokyo and I have not yet gotten in contact.
