Hoax? — A nuclear power plant in Fukumi, Japan exploded at 4:30AM today and it’s side effects

I live in Hyderabad, south part of INDIA. I received below message from one of my friend today in SMS form to my mobile. While the explosion new may be correct, the side effects and spread of effects through rain seems to be a nonsense for me. I am guessing it is hoax. News of this kind of hoax makes people panic. I am not sure who is trying to spread this message and make people pass it to everyone. If this news is true, Govt would have notified its citizens to take precautionary measures. I haven’t heard any such thing from Govt or news channels yet.

I am searching over internet to find the validity of news.

A nuclear power plant in Fukumi, Japan exploded at 4:30AM today. If it rains tomorrow, don’t go outside. If you are outside, make sure you get protection from rain, It’s acid rain. Don’t let it touch you. You may lose your hair or may get cancer.

Pass this message to all whom you care.

Do you have any related news about this? Do you think it is really a hoax? write in comments section

    I just saw the news in local TV channel. Per the news, the 2nd reactor in FukuShima blosted today and 4th(last one?) has got some fire. I pray for people in Japan.

    Coming to this hoax matter, the plant name that I got in SMS is Fukumi, but in news channels they are mentioning it as fukushima. Someone who composed this SMS don’t even know the correct names?

    Found some interesting analysis in this blog : http://abyrad.blogspot.com/2011/03/hoax-news-fukumi-nuclear-power-plant_15.html
