(NECN: Brad Puffer) - The nuclear crisis in Japan is intensifying. Dangerous levels of radiation are leaking from the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant.

The radiation releases have prompted the Japanese government to order 140,000 people to seal themselves indoors.  

The struggle to control the fires and explosions at a nuclear plant in Japan is prompting widespread evacuations. Experts say the steps are precautionary, but the situation is still not under control.
