Many factors caused the disasters in Japan: Loss of electricity, contamination of cooling pools with salt water, misplacement of back-up generators (they were flooded out due to tsunami) and management that did not want to make the hard decisions (flood containment pools with salt water, ask for help, putting profits before people.) Loss of electricity due to EMP will cause a SCRAM (auto-shutdown) of the reactors in the US.
