A fourth explosion at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant has two workers missing and officials worried the crippled reactor will continue to overheat which would lead to nuclear meltdown.
The 50 courageous workers who remained at the dying plant, trying desperately to cool the over-heating reactors at the contaminated nuclear complex, had to abandon the facility Tuesday night when surging radiation levels made it too dangerous to stay.
The potential for nuclear fall-out in Japan is prompting iodine tablets to fly off the shelves across the Pacific in British Columbia.
Iodine protects the thyroid gland from the effects of radiation poisoning.
People are panicked, however B.C.'s Health Minister says there is no threat of radiation exposure and that people are severely over-reacting.
