As reported here at CSW via live Japanese TV news reports- a violent explosion ripped apart a heavily-reinforced reactor containment building at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant complex’s Number 1 of 4 reactors in Fukushima.
Just after 8 p.m. Sunday night Kansas City time- a 2nd violent explosion has occurred in another containment building at the plant- this one at Reactor 3.
The American ASSOCIATED PRESS is reporting "3 injured" and "7 missing" in this latest blast..
Officials speaking on Japanese TV NHK say basically the explosion's cause was like the first one Saturday (hydrogen/oxygen mix) and that not much radioactivity was released.
Nonetheless- more than 125000 people remain evacuated from a 20km area around the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.
Tens of thousands of people in the quake and tsunami areas of Japan are either dead or unaccounted for- entire towns washed away- as rescue crews still attempt to reach some affected locations suffering freezing temperatures.
