Property values falling in HK. Laughable. Prices do correct but not due to Japan's situation.
If you live in HK you have far more risk of pollution killing you or dying in a mini-bus or taxi than from Japan's radiation.
There are investment fund managers who only Japan companies who by tomorrow will be out of cash and fully invested as they were buying under valued companies with revenues and with the margin calls in the Japan market drop are filling up with companies in sectors that will boom again soon.

35 years ago, Mark 1 Nuclear Reactor Design used at Fukushima Caused GE Scientist To Quit In Protest
Fukushima: Mark 1 Nuclear Reactor Design Caused GE Scientist To Quit In Protest - ABC News
Now some of those who quit or retired are going back in to risk their lives to save the city, very noble people. Can't say the same thing about those GE and TEPCO executives though.
And it doesn't change the fact that the execs went ahead building those plants when they knew the designs were faulty. And it does NOT take anything away from those brave men who have chosen to come out of retirement to risk their lives for their country.When asked if that was sufficient, he paused. "What I would say is, the Mark 1 is still a little more susceptible to an accident that would result in a loss of containment."

Radiation Levels 6,600 Times Normal 20km Away from Fukushima N-Plant
Tokyo, March 16 (Jiji Press)--Radiation levels about 6,600 times normal were detected on Tuesday at a place 20 kilometers away from a nuclear power plant at the center of Japan's nuclear crisis, the science ministry said Wednesday.
Radiation levels reached 195 to 330 microsieverts per hour in the Fukushima Prefecture town of Namie in radiation monitoring activities for about 10 minutes from 8:40 p.m. Tuesday (11:40 a.m. GMT), the ministry said.
The town is about 20 kilometers away from the earthquake-hit Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant of Tokyo Electric Power Co. <9501>, the ministry said.
On Tuesday, the government advised residents within 30 kilometers from the nuclear plant to stay indoors.
The ministry reported the results of its radiation monitoring activities to the government's disaster management task force.
