  • For battered Japan, a new threat: nuclear meltdown Mar 12, 2022 09:30 PM

    • IWAKI, Japan - Cooling systems failed at another nuclear reactor on Japan's devastated coast Sunday, hours after an explosion at a nearby unit made leaking radiation, or even outright meltdown, the central threat to the country following a catastrophic earthquake and tsunami.
    • The Japanese government said radiation emanating from the plant appeared to have decreased after Saturday's blast, which produced a cloud of white smoke that obscured the complex.
    • But the danger was grave enough that officials pumped seawater into the reactor to avoid disaster and moved 170,000 people from the area.
