Who says nuclear power is safe?
From the Guardian-
Now an official from Japan's powerful trade ministry is telling news organisations that Tepco is "also considering releasing pressure" at the Fukushima Daini nuclear plant.
The government has also just ordered the evacuation of a three kilometre radius around Fukushima Daini plant following the previous evacuation order of a 10km radius around Fukushima Daiichi."
"Now there are reports from nuclear plant operator Tepco that the Fukushima Daini plant has lost cooling to three of its reactors.
It was one reactor in the Fukushima Daiichi plant that had been the cause for concern earlier so this news is certainly unwelcome.
According to Dow-Jones, Tepco says that the temperatures of its No 1 and No 2 reactors at its Fukushima Daini nuclear power station are rising, and it has lost control over pressure within the reactors.
Fukushima Daini station is the second nuclear power plant the company has in Fukushima prefecture in northeastern Japan, where the troubled Fukushima Daiichi plant is located.
10.34pm GMT: The damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactor has already been leaking radiation outside the plant, confirms Japan's nuclear safety agency and the operator, the Tokyo Electric Power company."
