This is what he's talking about.

The core of a nuclear reactor damaged by Friday’s massive earthquake has partially melted, Japan’s nuclear safety agency said Saturday, and the company that runs the plant is pouring seawater into the reactor in an attempt to cool it and prevent it from going critical.

Don't start freaking out about the West Coast turning into a wasteland until there are more reputable reports (and maybe a conformation fro officials in Japan). And even then, a meltdown doesn't mean that Canada/the US is going to get radiation.

Keep in mind that the news tends to over exaggerate the worst possibilities. And they want to be the first to say what happening so they could be talking about meltdowns before it's really happening.

Stop freaking out, even if it does fully meltdown it is NEVER going to reach you. If that were the case for a meltdown everywhere east of Chernobyl would have been hit by deadly radiation which we know did NOT happen. Stop playing into the hand of sensationalist media, you have NOTHING to worry about.
