I'd have to agree, despite it being an old reactor its not cheaply made and badly designed like Chernobyl was. They're also a hell of a lot better prepared for something like that too.

What I'm hoping is that everyone continues to use nuclear power than suddenly thinking it must be stopped.

I'll just wait until they confirm things properly rather than some mindless speculation by news sources.

This. Especially if both plants survive this ordeal. It would show that even a plat built 40 years ago can survive the "perfect storm."

IWAKI, Japan — Japanese authorities confirmed Saturday that radiation had leaked from a quake-hit nuclear plant after an explosion destroyed a building at the site.

Following an explosion at the Fukushima nuclear power plant there are growing fears of a nuclear meltdown NBC's Anne Thompson reports.

The blast at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility occurred just hours after officials said they feared the reactor could melt down.

Footage on Japanese TV showed that the walls of one building had crumbled, leaving only a skeletal metal frame standing. Its roof had also been blown off. Plumes of smoke spewed out of the plant, 20 miles from Iwaki.

Four workers were injured by the blast at Fukushima Unit 1, officials said.
There were conflicting reports about whether or not the damaged building housed the reactor.

The evacuation zone was doubled in size from 6 miles to 12 miles, Japanese broadcaster NHK reported.
