The situation in japan looks critical and now with fuel rods exposed and re-criticality possible has the Japanese government underplayed the nuclear threat.

The United States think so with officials stating that Japanese warnings have been insufficient.  They believe the japan incident is worst than three-mile island which is America’s biggest nuclear disaster which occurred in Pennsylvania. The disaster however is not as bad as Chernobyl or so say sources there is a lot of speculation on how dire the situation is and the current state of the reactors.

The country is still disabled by the earthquake and tsunami therefore the humanitarian response is very important. The pumps are running out of fuel and the shelves in most if not all supermarkets are empty, the government are using helicopters to help get supplies to badly hit areas. With over 4000 people dead a nuclear disaster is not what japan needs to get back on its feet.
