A second explosion at Japan’s earthquake-hit nuclear power plant has led to fears of a possible nuclear meltdown.

The Fukushima plant has been hit by two explosions at buildings housing two reactors since a massive 8.9-magnitude earthquake hit on Friday, and the cooling system at a third reactor stopped working on Monday.

Operator TEPCO said a fuel rod meltdown could not be ruled out after cooling water levels dropped sharply at the No. 2 reactor, according to Jiji Press. A meltdown could release radioactive material into the air.
