Radiation fears after Japan Nuclear plant blast:




Radiation from Japan's quake-stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has reached harmful levels, the government says.

The warning comes after the plant was rocked by a third blast which appears to have damaged one of the reactors' containment vessels for the first time.

If it is breached, there are fears of more serious radioactive leaks.

The crisis was sparked by a 9.0-magnitude quake and tsunami on Friday.

'Don't go outside'

On Tuesday morning, reactor 2 became the third to explode in four days at the Fukushima Daiichi plant - 250km (155 miles) north-east of Tokyo.

Officials have extended the danger zone, warning residents within 30km (18 miles) to evacuate or stay indoors.

Radiation levels drop at Japanese plant


Tokyo (CNN) -- Japanese authorities said radiation levels had dropped at the earthquake-damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant Tuesday

"The level has come down to the level to cause no harm to human health, according to the report I have received," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano told reporters, describing reading taken at the plant's front gate.

Edano said readings at the gate at 3:30 p.m. (2:30 a.m. ET) were 596.4 microsieverts per hour -- compared to a high reading of 11,930 microsieverts per hour at 9 a.m (8 p.m. ET Monday).

"We have to monitor the situation closely, but the high concentration of radioactive material is not emitting constantly from the No. 4 reactor right now," he said.

But it was unclear whether an explosion and fire earlier had allowed dangerous radioactive material to escape.

BBC flash news: Japan government confirms radiation leak at fukushima nuclear plants. Asian countries should take necessary precautions. 

If rain comes, remain indoors first 24 hours, close doors n windows, swab neck skin with beta-dine where thyroid area is, radiation hits thyroid first. 

Take extra precautions, radiation may hit Philippines starting 4pm (Pinas time) today! Kolkatta and Mumbai will be major hits in India. PLEASE PASS.
