Official 2nd Japan, An earthquake of magnitude 8.9 struck northern Japan on Friday morning, triggering tsunamis that have caused considerable damage and paralyzed a nuclear plant.

The state of emergency was declared at a nuclear power plant in Onagawa, Japan, where excessive radiation levels were recorded following the massive earthquake on Friday, the UN agency said on Sunday monitoring of nuclear activities.

The authorities told the agency that the three reactors at Onagawa “are under control.”

The state of emergency was declared at a nuclear power plant in Onagawa, Japan, where excessive radiation levels were recorded following the massive earthquake on Friday, the UN agency said on Sunday monitoring of nuclear activities.

The authorities told the agency that the three reactors at Onagawa “are under control.”

As international aid began to flow to Japan on Sunday, China’s Red Cross said it would donate about $ 152,000 and emergency assistance to its Japanese counterpart, China’s official Xinhua reported News agency.

Spokesman of the Government of Japan has warned top of the risk of a second explosion at the plant in Fukushima stricken nuclear reactor but said that the three can he resist such a reactor has a day earlier.

The country is facing a feared collapse of two reactors at the plant and the full horror of the disaster emerges on the northeast coast ravaged.

“There is the possibility of an explosion in the reactor of the third, as in the case of the first reactor,” Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano during a televised news conference.

But he says the reactor will survive and there will be no adverse effect on the health of residents.

Moreover, alarming reports have emerged about the magnitude of the earthquake and tsunami. Police believe the Miyagi prefecture in that region alone 10 000 people may have lost.

The radiological emergencies is increasing in the earthquake devastated Japan with vital cooling systems to prevent overheating if the second nuclear reactor.

Mr. Edano said the risk of a second explosion was reinforced by hydrogen accumulation in the three years when the reactor cooling water levels fell.

The nuclear power plant operator has been pumping seawater into the engine to reduce heat.

Mr. Edano said that in an explosion, parts of the reactor may be deformed, but expressed confidence that survive the impact and there will be no nuclear fusion.

“The situation would not affect human health, but we make this announcement because we can not exclude the possibility of an incident of explosion,” said Edano.

Asked earlier if collapse occurred, Mr. Edano said: “We act on the assumption that there is a strong possibility that it was” in the number of plant reactor 1.

“As the No. Reactor, we act on the assumption that it is possible,” he said of the plant located 250 kilometers northeast of Tokyo.

An explosion at the plant aging nuclear reactor blew out No. 1 on the housing Saturday, a day after the largest earthquake ever recorded in Japan triggered a tsunami monster 10 meters.

Mr. Edano said some radiation escaped, but the levels released into the air have so far not reached levels high enough to affect human health.
