Fukushima No. I Nuclear Power Plant.
After Japan's most powerful ever earthquake in recorded history on 11th March 2011, Fukushima No. I Nuclear Power Plant was hit on March 12 by a massive explosion blowing open the reactor container building, causing a plume of white smoke or steam rising above the plant, and most likely leading to radiation leaks.
The Japanese government declared an “atomic power emergency” and was evacuating thousands of residents living close to Fukushima power plant. On Sunday, 13th March, the authorities had widen the emergency zone to 20 km (12.5 mi) around the nuclear power plant, affecting more than 200,000 people to be evacuated, and that in a region which is most affected by the earthquake and the ensuing tsunami. Officials tried to downplay the danger of a nuclear core meltdown, but that might also had to do with the Asian fear for loosing face.
