INTERNATIONAL. Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) said March 12 that the explosion at the Fukushima Daiichi No. 1 nuclear plant could only have been caused by a meltdown of the reactor core, Japanese daily Nikkei reported. This statement seemed somewhat at odds with Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano’s comments earlier March 12, in which he said “the walls of the building containing the reactor were destroyed, meaning that the metal container encasing the reactor did not explode.”

CNN's inteview with the Japanese Ambassador was saying a melt down is not occuring - then he slipped up at one point and said something about a partial melt at one of the other reactors. I got confussed but CNN took down their announcment saying Official: Meltdown occuring. The Ambassador also stated they are the
only ones handling this situation - no help from other countries regarding the plants. Keep in mind this is just heresay from me watching TV media - nothing solid and I don't know who or what to believe at this point.
36 hours to reach the US and Canada - who would be testing the atmosphere across the Pacific for radiation?
