Pardon my ignorance, are the sirens for another potential tsunami, or due to the nuclear issues?

Earthquake sirens. But I don't know at which magnitude they go off... probably minimum of 5.5 or something.

Thank's, I didn't realise they had warnings for earthquakes. Living in the UK we don't have to deal with earthquakes so knowledge is sketchy.

I could be wrong, but I believe it's the explosion that triggered the alarms? I read last night the second explosion could have triggered the tsunami and earthquake alarms. I believe this is the case.

BREAKING NEWS: Some workers begin to evacuate No. 2 reactor: TEPCO


Workers leaving site, maybe a sign of the worst kind, no one to work the pumps?

How will that impact the overall situation?

What role does that portion of the unit play in the overall operation of the reactor?

Is it me or is it taking a while for video of the third explosion to get out?

TV news seems to be skirting around the issue.. not much info anywhere except that an explosion was heard..
Getting better info from the net..

I hope my thoughts wont be proved right with this new blast being bad...

SOME workers. In any case workers leaving is not a good thing, but I'm guessing there are still workers along the area. Also, I'm guessing that the pumps are automatically affiliated, not manually if that's what you're stating. Overall though, that is not good news.

At the same time, earthquake sirens were going off in Tokyo and now another blast to #2 reactor....Could this new aftershock cause the explosion.

Sure there has. You can check on usgs.gov but for me, following NewEarthquake on Twitter gets you the info almost as it occurs. Here's the info from USGS:
