The latest official warning in Japan’s nuclear nightmare has gone from “we now have a 30km exclusion zone” to “get the hell out of the country”. Australian and US governments are telling their citizens to get out of Japan ASAP as it looks more and more likely a meltdown is inevitable at the Fukushima nuclear plant.

OK, no need to panic people of Japan but if you happen to live near a nuclear power plant, run!!!! Despite official reports that the plants are not leaking radiation, following the whopper earthquake, US air force personnel have been spotted delivering coolant. That can’t be good! Hmm, seems the problem is if the level of water drops in the pumps at the Fukushima reactor and can no longer cool the uranium then they could have a Chernobyl on their hands! As if they haven’t suffered enough! Residents living in a 3 km radius have been told to evacuate, just in case. Evacuate to where?
UPDATE : The amount of radiation has reached 1,000 time the normal level in No 1 reactor and it is feared they may have to release radioactive steam into the air to ease pressure build up. Evacuations are underway.
