Winds over an earthquake-stricken nuclear power plant in Japan are blowing slowly in a southwesterly direction that includes Tokyo but will shift westerly later on Tuesday, a weather official said.

The wind is moving at a speed of about two to three metres (7 to 10 ft) per second, said the official with the Japan Meteorological Agency based in Fukushima Prefecture, the locaton of three troubled nuclear reactors.

Earlier, Japan's prime minister warned that radioactive levels had become high around the nuclear power plant after explosions at two reactors, adding that the risk of more radiactive leakage was rising.
