Radioactivity Detected 60 Miles From Fukushima Power Plant
And keeping the news going is the update from NHK that at least 11 people have died in the second blast reported earlier:
At least eleven people died in a second explosion at the Fukushima nuclear plant in north-eastern Japan on Monday, NHK TV said.
The build-up of hydrogen caused reactor no. 3 to explode at around 02:00 GMT but the government’s top spokesman, Yukio Edano, said its core was still intact. He said there was a “low possibility” of a rise in radiation levels near the damaged plant.
A blast occurred in the plant’s reactor no. 1 on Saturday.
The plant’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co., told the TV station that the cooling system at reactor no. 2 has failed.
