Evacuation zone around Japan nuclear plant expanded due to radiation

The headline:  One month on, Japan rattled by big aftershock

The summary:  The evacuation zone around Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has been expanded due to high radiation levels.

The reaction:  Japan has expanded the evacuation zone around the plant from 12 miles to about 19 miles as high levels of accumulated radiation were detected today.  I think this serves more as a precaution as opposed to any imminent threat but it’s also an indication of just how crippled and fragile the plant has become.
