Fukushima Nuclear Reactor Actual Explosion And Pictures

Japan has been bombarded by catastrophic events, and it just seems to be getting worse. Watching all this from the other side of the globe, it all seems so surreal!

Earlier today, water levels at Fukushima’s nuclear plant dropped and exposed the uranium fuel rods, raising the likelihood of a meltdown. Workers at the site managed to raise the water level again, but the rods have been fully exposed twice today. This came a short while after a a hydrogen explosion ripped through a separate reactor. Japanese officials say the nuclear fuel rods appear to be melting inside all three of the most troubled reactors.

Watch the actual explosion here:

These are the latest pictures of Fukushima’s nuclear reactors in Japan, that are ‘highly likely’ to face meltdown.
