Tokyo, Mar 13 (PTI) Facing an unprecedented nuclear crisis, Japan today struggled hard to avert multiple meltdowns at two of its reactors damaged by the devastating earthquake and tsunami as it braced for a fresh explosion at Fukushima plant amid fears that the toll may exceed 10,000 in the ravaged northeastern coast.

In southwestern Japan, the 1,421-metre Shinmoedake volcano erupted today ringing alarm bells as ash and rocks shot up into the sky but it was not immediately clear if it was a fallout of the massive earthquake.

In a televised statement, Prime Minister Naoto Kan said Japan is experiencing its biggest crisis since World War II as it tackled the aftermath of Friday's massive earthquake with a magnitude of 9, the ferocious tsunami and the worrying nuclear crisis.
