Temperatures rising in reactor one at Fukushima Daiichi plant

Japanese officials are reporting rising temperatures at reactor one at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. Radiation levels are said to be registering at 100-thousand times the normal level, an amount workers could only be exposed to for fifteen minutes at a time.

Professor Cham Dallas is the Director of the Institute for Health Management and Mass Destruction Defense at the University of Georgia and has led 12 expeditions into the most contaminated areas of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Professor Dallas talks to American Morning's Kiran Chetry about the latest developments out of Japan.
