Status of major Canon Group operating sites as of 4/4/11

Not sure how reliable this is, but I found this on the web. I would encourage anyone who can afford it to consider a small donation to the Japanese Red Cross or any of the other organizations that are helping those affected by this disaster.

Other Factors

2) In regions subject to scheduled rolling blackouts, ensuring stable operations may prove difficult due to electrical outages.
