Meltdowns have reportedly occurred in two of Japan's nuclear reactors while a risk of another explosion is reported at Japan's quake-hit Fukushima nuclear power.
The Japanese government made the announcement on Sunday as the cooling system of one more reactor has reportedly failed.
Reports say the plant's operator issued the warning after reactor number six lost its cooling function.
The operator now states that the radiation level at the site has surpassed the legal limit.
Meanwhile, thousands of Japanese have been evacuated from the area after Saturday's explosion at the earthquake-damaged nuclear power plant.'
