Update 5:
JMA says there could be additional strong quakes. This quake is an aftershock of the 2011 quake

Update 4:

Members of our research team spotted standing water among the contaminated water storage tanks on the NHK video feed taken by helicopter flying over the plant. We are continuing to investigate if this is rainwater or if there are leaking tanks

Update 3:
NHK has a live helicopter feeding footage of Daiichi and Daini. So far nothing looks obviously damaged. You can watch live on their website or if you have NHK World as a TV channel they have put the coverage on those channels
