U.S. stocks plunged at Tuesday's open, with the Dow industrials sinking nearly 300 points within the first minutes of trading.

The sharp sell-off follows an 11% drop in Japan's leading index in the wake of a nuclear crisis caused by last week's earthquake.

The Dow Jones industrial (INDU) tumbled 240 points or 2% in the first hour of trading, after earlier being down as much as 297 points. All 30 companies in the Dow posted losses, led by General Electric (GE, Fortune 500), which fell 4%.

The Japanese nuclear plant that exploded on Saturday is equipped with GE-designed reactors.
