BY CHRISTINE SLUSSER ANCHOR SALEM SOLOMAN You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy “A new day and a nightmare for quake victims in Japan.” (Video Source: CNN) “...has some Japanese calling this Japan’s Chernobyl.” (Video Source: CBS) JOHN LARGE: “...and we know about 170,000 people have now been evacuated, so clearly they are preparing for the worst case.” (Video Source: ITN) From earthquakes, to tsunamis, to nuclear meltdowns, it’s hard to imagine things getting much worse for Japan--but where there’s a media, there’s a way. One theme dominating the coverage is “can it get any worse?” Media outlets take a look at the worst case scenarios. (Video Source: RT) “There are now three power plants in Japan where there are fears about radiation.” (Video Source: Sky News) “..***uld overheat and meltdown, releasing radioactivity into the environment.” (Video Source: MSN) “Japan has declared an emergency alert at another nuclear power plant in the Northeast of the country. Radiation levels of about 700 times higher than normal have reportedly been detected.” (Video Source: RT) One YouTube user was compelled enough to warn Americans of impending radioactive doom. “The wind was blowing to the east of Japan, and the picture you’re looking at suggests where it’s gonna go. With the current... situation, wind current and so on and so forth, so I don’t know what more to say to you, I don’t have the knowledge to advise you anymore... ” Fox News interviewed nuclear power expert Joe Cirincione, who says the likelihood of America having a similar fate is very, very possible. “[A] trifecta of earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown in the U.S. remains a possibility...Diablo Canyon in California is ‘a classic case of a very large nuclear reactor in an area that's seismically active...’” ...and the disaster anxiety has indeed spread overseas. A writer for Canada Free Press imagines a monster volcano exploding in the U.S. “If the Yellowstone Park caldera, the largest potential volcano in the U.S. should explode, it would have a comparable affect and there isn’t a damn thing that can be done about it.” Keep up with the latest on the Japanese disaster by downloading the latest Newsy iphone app. You can now stream our videos through your Apple TV – it’s free from the iTunes Store.

BY YIQIAN ZHANG ANCHOR ANA COMPAIN-ROMERO You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy. “While Americans are watching the situation in Japan, many on the West Coast are trying to protect themselves in case of radiation fallout. People there are rushing to buy potassium iodide. It’s an over-the-counter drug that protects the thyroid from radiation.” (KRCG) In some places such as Los Angeles, the pills are sold out. But does potassium iodide even protect against radiation? A writer for medical blog WebMD says, not really. “It’s important to note that potassium iodide pills protect only the thyroid. They don’t prevent your body from taking in the radiation and don’t help prevent radiation damage to other parts of the body.” (WebMD) And a health expert tells Fox News- the risks associated with the medicine may not be worth it. “It can cause thyroid disease, it can cause allergies, it can cause stomach upset, know as you are vomiting it can cause diarrhea…” (Fox News) Regardless of whether the pills work- a health expert tells KSBW- the U.S. west coast isn’t exactly inside the radiation zone. “The evacuation zone they are moving people to is 12 miles from the nuclear plant. That’s what they are saying is a safe area. We are from five to seven thousand miles from there. Do the math.” (KSBW) But an editor for Bay Citizen argues- with all the ambiguous reports about the radiation levels, it makes sense- people are scared. “Experts we spoke to seem convinced that no matter what happens at Fukushima Daiichi, a radiation cloud blowing across the Pacific won't pose any health hazards in California. But since we don't really know exactly what level of radiation exposure might cause long-term health problems, I'm not sure I believe this.” (Bay Citizen) That editor went on to say definitive answers about radiation levels are in quote “maddeningly short supply.” Still - a BlogHer writer says that’s no reason to panic. “You can either run around like a headless chicken, hightailing it to the closest pharmacy so you can buy hundreds of bottles of potassium iodide, while you constantly wonder when the world will cave in, or you can do your best to be informed -- then take a deep breath -- and let it go.” (BlogHer) According to Google Insights, searches for “potassium iodide” and similar terms have increased more than 5,000 percent over the past week- but only in the U.S. Follow Newsy_Videos on Twitter Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

BY ERIK SHUTE AND HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching multisource breaking news analysis from Newsy This is Newsy Now and here are the headlines you need to know. After blasts on Friday and early Monday, fears of a third explosion at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant are surfacing. 180,000 people have been evacuated. RT reports. “Again, we are hearing the third reactor has lost its cooling capacity, increasing fears that it will overheat and cause another blast. Meanwhile, engineers have been using seawater to try to cool down reactors at the complex, which were damaged in the quake to avert a catastrophic nuclear meltdown.” As rescue efforts continue, Japanese officials say the death toll of the earthquake and tsunami may could exceed 10,000 people. Libyan rebels lost control of crucial oil town of Brega over the weekend. As forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi continue to make progress, euronews explains the pressure the rebels face. “The regime appears to be getting closer to the opposition stronghold of Benghazi. The city of Ajdabiya lies on its path. And on Sunday, rebels there were bracing themselves for an attack. Gaddafi has vowed, has he put it, to liberate all of Libya. On state television he said he was certain of victory and that he would bury the rebels.” Also in the Middle East — Bahrain protesters are calling for help from other Arab states, as they face increased violence from law enforcements. Al Jazeera shares this video. “Shocking evidence of the lack of control Bahrain authorities have over the security services. A policeman uses a handgun to reportedly fire live rounds indiscriminately toward protesters. He then retreats to his vehicle.” One thousand troops from Saudi Arabia arrived in Bahrain early today as part of the Gulf Cooperation Council forces, aiming to gain control and maintain stability in the country. In U.S. news -- State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley resigned yesterday over controversial comments he made about the Pentagon’s treatment of Army private Bradley Manning, who is suspected of leaking information to WikiLeaks. CNN reports Crowley called Manning’s placement into solitary confinement "ridiculous, counterproductive and stupid.” At a press conference on Sunday, Crowley said he regrets going public with his statements, but he fears the mistreatment of Manning could undermine the prosecution and hurt President Obama’s worldwide reputation. The former Clinton aide had served the U.S. in and out of uniform for more than 30 years. In sports -- selection Sunday ranked Duke, Kansas, Pittsburgh, and Ohio State as number one seeds for this’s NCAA Basketball Tournament. CBS Sports says it was the Big East conference who really came out on top sending 11 teams to the big dance. CBS Sports reporters talked with tournament chair Jeff Hathaway. Reporter: “Mr. Hathaway I want to know, you’re very familiar with how successful the Big East has been this year -- 11 teams in the tournament. How hard was it to put them into the brackets when you want to avoid some of those second round matchups that could occur. HATHAWAY: “Well certainly it is a challenge to have 11 teams from one conference come into the bracket, but you may know after the ninth team the bracketing policies are relaxed and give us the flexibility to accommodate the bracket.” Stay with Newsy**** for more analysis on news throughout the day.

BY CHRISTINA HARTMAN AND BRANDON TWICHELL ANCHOR CHRISTINA HARTMAN You're watching multisource world video news analysis from Newsy After a third explosion at Japan’s Fukushima Daichi nuclear power plant - international observers fear a nuclear meltdown is looming. Nuclear and radiological experts now say the incident is approaching the severity of the Chernobyl disaster of 1986. Adding to those concerns - NPR explains - a fire at the plant’s number 4 reactor has experts worried fuel rods have been exposed - leaving open the possibility they could melt and leak radiation into the atmosphere. CNN contributor Jim Walsh says - he’s watching the plant’s primary containment vessel - which is the last line of defense against full radioactive release. He says he’s hoping this is more Three Mile Island than Chernobyl. “You know, Three Mile Island, when it had its problem, the containment vessel held and while there was some radiation out there, the core did not leak out into the environment.” But on ABC’s Good Morning America - nuclear security expert Joe Cirincione says the plant’s design makes hope difficult. He calls the incident -quote- “unprecedented in nuclear power history.” “It’s made worse by the way the Japanese build their reactors. They cluster them together as you just reported. Many of the plants in Japan have four or more units, so what that means is it’s very efficient, but a disaster at one can avalanche into a complicated disaster next door.” 140,000 people have been ordered to stay indoors. And on Tuesday Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan announced radioactive levels could - quote “have an effect on humans.” According to Canada’s CTV - that public announcement is a step in the right direction AWAY from Chernobyl. “You think of all the people back in the Soviet days who were scrambling to get any information they possibly could, but there was a secretive lid (on the disaster). … Japan appears to have learned from Chernobyl’s mistakes. … the government has been communicating with the public on a daily basis, and emergency measures are in full effect.” According to NPR - as of Tuesday Tokyo Electric Power had evacuated all but 50 of its workers. The ones left behind are working to cool the reactors by pumping in sea water and venting the resulting steam. Follow Newsy on Twitter Newsy_Videos to get daily video updates in your stream.
