Looking for the human stories of the Japanese people

With all the focus in Japan on what's going to happen to the nuke plants -- and the fact that apparently rescue/salvage workers and journalists haven't gotten to some places yet -- it's understandable if there haven't been many truly human stories yet. (If I've missed one or more, please link here.)
So far what I've seen has come from raw video -- powerful indeed, but lacking the structure and context that gives you the richest experience.
When those stories start to come out, this tragedy is going to have another level of impact -- human impact -- that's going to hit us all over again, and hopefully galvanize us in some way, as the best stories do.
It reminds us: Cover the hell out of the news, and never stop searching for the story.
