JAPAN (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Workers have been evacuated from the Fukushima nuclear reactor #3 after gray smoke was seen rising from it.
The setback comes as Japanese officials announced they restored power and cooling to reactors 4 and 5.
Authorities are also dealing with elevated levels of radioactivity in produce, milk and water in areas near the troubled nuclear facility.
Officials say the death toll could exceed 18,000, although some estimates in Miyagi Prefecture alone put the death toll there at more than 15,000.
This news comes as two survivors were found after spending nine days in the rubble.
