    Explosion rocks another Japanese nuclear reactor building - CNN.com

    Fresh white smoke rose again Monday from Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, caused by an explosion at a building tied to the facility's No. 3 reactor.

    Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said that, according to the head of the nuclear facility, the container vessel surrounding the reactor is still intact. Initial reports suggest that radiation levels rose following the explosion late Monday morning, but Edano said he does not believe there has been a massive leak.

    Nuclear fuel rods fully exposed at Japan reactor - Jiji

    (Reuters) - Nuclear fuel rods at a quake-stricken Japanese nuclear reactor are now fully exposed, Jiji news agency said, quoting the plant's operator, Tokyo Eletcric Power Co .

    The report referred to the Fukushima Daiichi complex's No.2 reactor, where levels of water coolant around the reactor core had been reported as falling earlier in the day.

    The Jiji report said a meltdown of the fuel rods could not be ruled out. A meltdown raises the risk of damage to the reactor vessel and a possible radioactive leak, experts say.

    This simply means that the rods are no longer contained in water, not that they're exposed to the outside. A possible radioactive leak would be of the nonlethal variety, i.e. one that isn't dangerous to humans.

    New radiation leaks harmful to health

    The prime minister has warned residents to stay inside or risk getting radiation sickness. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said Tuesday that a fourth reactor at the Fukushima Dai-ichi complex was on fire and that more radiation was released

    BBC News - Japan quake: Radiation rises at Fukushima nuclear plant

    Explosions at a Japanese quake-stricken nuclear plant have led to radiation levels that can affect human health, a senior Japanese official has said.

    Prime Minister Naoto Kan has urged those living within 30km (18 miles) of the plant to stay indoors.

    Earlier, reactor 2 at the Fukushima Daiichi plant was hit by a blast - the third reactor to explode in four days - leading to fears of a meltdown.... A fresh explosion rocked reactor 2 at the Fukushima Daiichi plant - 250km (155 miles) north-east of Tokyo - in the early hours of Tuesday.

    Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said, "Now we are talking about levels that can impact human health."...
    All three reactors at Fukushima have exploded. Dangerous levels of radiation are now being expelled into the atmosphere. I encourage everyone to read the latest BBC article. The nuclear situation in Japan is growing more dire by the day, and although I do not believe that catastrophic failure is imminent, it is considerably more likely than it was two days ago.

    URGENT: Radiation 1,000 times higher than normal detected at nuke plant


    The amount of radiation reached around 1,000 times the normal level Saturday in the control room of the No. 1 reactor of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said.

    The discovery suggests radioactive steam could spread around the facility operated by Tokyo Electric Power Co.

    1,000 pennies are just $10.00. This article means absolutely nothing.

    Re: State of emergency declared at Japan Nuclear Plant

    Dose RATE means something....so even tho Giant Noodle may usually be wrong, I wouldn't count this time as one of his times being wrong. But, the citizens living nearby won't likely be measurably affected. Operators will face much larger doses, but still are not likely to get sick or produce any mutations.
