Workers at the Fukushima 1 nuclear power plant are battling to stabilize the reactors after a second explosion on Saturday.
Now, technicians are trying to avoid a meltdown in one of the three reactors by pouring in seawater. They say the fuel rods were almost completely exposed – raising fears of a further catastrophe.
All people within a 20-kilometer radius of the plant are being evacuated to other areas. The Japanese government is playing down fears of a nuclear disaster – but news reports say that a U.S. aircraft carrier in the area has been redeployed, after recording abnormally high levels of radiation 100 kilometers offshore.
