The explosion at a nuclear power plant north of Tokyo has added to the crisis in a capital city already under severe stress. That was before news of an explosion, and warnings of a possible "meltdown", at the Fukushima nuclear power plant.
As the evening turned to night, the world's second-largest metropolis was still waiting to know whether it had been exposed to what would be perhaps the world's worst nuclear disaster.


The nuclear safety agency which had spoken of possible "meltdown" now declared Fukushima a "level 4 incident" on the accepted international scale, one with only a limited release of radiation and simply "local consequences." Three Mile Island was a level five, and Chernobyl the highest, a level seven.
And past experience of nuclear accidents suggests that the full truth almost never emerges until weeks or months later.
