Nuclear Crisis Worsens in Japan (Asahi, NPR)

The crisis at the No. 1 Fukushima nuclear power plant was quickly running out of control Tuesday, after two explosions, a fire and dangerous levels of radiation compounded the problems at four of its six reactors.


Radiation levels spiked at the stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power complex for the second day in a row. Emergency workers were ordered to pull back to a safe distance while continuing their efforts to cool the plant’s overheating reactors. Officials say the levels do not pose a threat to the public outside the plant.
