Japan crisis reminder of US nuclear fallout

Japan nuclear worries evoke memories of Three Mile Island accident 32 years ago.

    The unfolding nuclear disaster in Japan is hitting close to home in the US state of Pennsylvania.

    An accident 32 years ago at the Three Mile Island nuclear plant spread fear and uncertainty across the country.

    Officials say no one died or was injured in the accident, but residents of communities near the plant disagree.

    Al Jazeera's Cath Turner spoke to a few of them.
