The government of Japan are today scrambling to stamp out fears that there is a possibility of a nuclear meltdown upon there being an explosion inside a building where a power plant's reactor was situated. The country today are coming to terms with the devastation after the earthquake and tsunami which hit the country yesterday.

Government spokesman Yukio Edano said radiation levels were decreasing near the blast site in Fukushima and that the metal container protecting the reactor was not damaged. "We have confirmed that the walls of this building were what exploded, and it was not the reactor's container that exploded," Edano said. Television footage, however, showed large clouds of grey smoke pouring out the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant.
Earlier reports said radiation levels inside the plant surged to 1,000 times more than normal and a small leak was detected.

So chilling news from Japan and all prayers will be made that something very sinister doesn't emerge from this power plant reactor.
