President Obama has called Japan's Prime Minister (again) and we, of course, are only allowed to read about one part of that phone call.

Meanwhile, this statement came via Reuters:
"The operator of Japan's crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex said on Wednesday that it is unclear how the seawater around the plant became radioactive.
Seawater near the complex's No.1 reactor contained concentrations of radioactive iodine at 3,355 times the legal limit, Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said earlier on Wednesday.
The radiation in the seawater is unlikely to have a major impact on people's health, an official from Tokyo Electric Power Co told a news conference."
