No relief for a Japanese nuclear power plant that was hit by a second explosion.  The plant is located in an area that was rocked by an earthquake and tsunami on Friday.

The explosion occurred mid-morning Monday, while workers were battling to bring down temperatures inside the Fukushima Number One nuclear power plant’s number three reactor.

The government advised anyone within 20 kilometers of the power station to stay indoors and close windows. Several people were exposed to radiation following Saturday’s blast.
