    Will I be alive tomorrow, asks woman on internet
    Tokyo, Mar 12, Reuters:

    Thousands of people in tech-savvy Japan swamped the internet in the hours after a devastating earthquake and tsunami to tell loved ones they were safe, but social networking sites were also flooded with worries about an explosion at a nuclear plant.

    When news spread on Saturday of a radiation leak at a nuclear power plant run by Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) , after an explosion at the facility, many messages on social networking sites were panic-stricken.

    “Came back home at 8 in the morning after the depressing night... Now, the nuclear power plant has exploded and we might already be exposed to radioactivity,” said a 23-year-old woman office worker from Tokyo on a Facebook page.

    “I just don’t know what to do, what’s coming next, and will I be alive tomorrow?” she asked

    The presence of radioactive cesium in the atmosphere after the plant was vented indicated that a partial meltdown was under way.

    "That told the operators that the fuel rods had been exposed, that the water level had dropped below the fuel rods and the fuel rods were starting to burn, releasing cesium," he said.

    "That's when people really started paying attention to this crisis," he said.

    At least three residents evacuated from a Japanese town near the nuclear plant have been exposed to radiation, media reports say.

    The three were randomly chosen for examination out of about 90 bedridden patients moved from a hospital in the town of Futaba-machi.

    The patients had waited for rescuers on a school ground, spending a long time outside and then being moved by helicopter at the time when an explosion hit the plant.

    The government declared an atomic emergency and said tens of thousands of people living within 20 kilometres of the plant
