Japanese officials are sounding the alarm today that they suspect one of the reactor cores at the Fukushima nuclear plant has been breached. They fear this could well mean a MUCH more serious radioactive contamination to come in the area.
A very serious Japanese Prime Minister Kan acknowledged the report from Japanese nuclear safety officials saying they suspected the core breach at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant. The PM’s briefing came just before another 6.2 magnitude earthquake struck northeast Japan.
The Prime Minister thanked all the firefighters and utility workers who have been risking their lives to cool the reactors and contain or minimize the radiation contamination.
