The Diplomat blogger David McNeill has reached northeastern Japan’s quake zone. The editors have posted an interview with McNeill:
Q: Where are you now?
A: Right now we’re in Sendai. We’re heading north to the town of Minamisanriku, which I know you’ve heard of. It’s basically been wiped out by the tsunami, but we’re going to get as close as we can. We’re told that the roads are at least partially blocked, either by falling objects or police who have set up a perimeter. So we don’t now how close we’re going to be able to get. Last night we stayed in Fukushima, about 30 kilometers from the nuclear power plant.
