NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – The information we are getting out of Japan has been shocking. There is a CBS News team in Japan who arrived earlier this week to gather information for the ’60 Minutes’ show.

Nicole Young, an associate producer for ’60 Minutes’, was aware and prepared for the massive devastation before she left New York, but she told WCBS 880’s Steve Scott the scene is “like the apocalypse times three.”

Young describes the precautions they are taking while gathering information including monitoring their fuel use and provisions.
