Current situation
(Updated: March 16, 12:28 p.m. Eastern Time)
The threat of nuclear disaster looms large days after Japan’s most devastating natural disaster in recorded history – a magnitude 9.0 quake and the tsunami it triggered – has damaged a nuclear power plant and led to to unsafe levels of radiation.

The Japanese government has issued a warning and urged all those living within 20 km (12 miles) of the plant to evacuate or stay indoors. Radiation has been detected as far as Tokyo.

The quake-tsunami has left up to 100,000 people homeless, according to some estimates, and destroyed more than 600,000 homes.

For the seventh straight day, survivors are living with little food, water and electricity.

Temperatures are dipping to freezing levels, but many do not have access to heating or warm clothing. Hospitals are running out of medicine and supplies, and sick and injured survivors are struggling to find treatment.

You can help provide disaster relief to Japan’s survivors. Donate today.

Aftershocks are continuing to rattle the island nation, some as strong as magnitude 6.0. More than 6,000 people are confirmed dead or missing, according to official police tallies, but the actual figures are feared to be much higher.

Japan's Prime Minister, Naoto Kan, called the disaster “[Japan's] most severe crisis” since World War II.

Islamic Relief teams in Malaysia, Indonesia and China have been requested by the Japanese government to be on standby and are closely monitoring the situation.

You can help the victims of this disaster. Donate today.
