Japanese Officials Checking Children for Signs of Radiation


Residents, including children,  who live not far from Fukushima’s nuclear power plant are being checked for radiation.  The power plant just suffered a breakdown in the cooling system of a second installation, the number 3 reactor.  It desperately needs to have an infusion of water to keep it from a second explosion! The number 1 reactor has had an explosion already and up to 160 people are believed to be exposed to radiation.

Here an expert talks about how this compares to Cherynoble and Three Mile Island.
