Japan earthquake: Nuclear evacuation centre in Fukushima

Amateur footage has emerged of an evacuation centre in Fukushima as technicians battle to stabilise a third reactor at a quake-stricken Japanese nuclear plant in the area.

Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated from a 20-km exclusion zone around the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

Fukushima resident, Jason Ishida, filmed long supermarket queues near his home where people are stocking up on supplies of food and water.

The footage also shows residents, who are unable to return to their homes, collecting food at an evacuation centre at Fukushima High School.
