It is true that we have never had an actual meltdown. If this is the true it is not good.
As I understand it, if the highly concentrated fuel rods melt and get hot enough, they can burn through the earth's crust potentially striking the
water table whereupon a radioactive steam geyser will be produced.
Actually, I think you may be speaking of a Hydrovolcanic Explosion, which was discussed at length immediately after Day One and still is a concern,
because even if t escaped corium doesn't immediately explode, it will cause contamination of underground water, soil, and the Pacific Ocean.
“Moreover, if the underground water vein keeps being heated for long time, a massive hydrovolcanic explosion will be caused,”

Please explain this comment.
Who is "we"?
"never had an actual meltdown"
Worldwide? Fukushima? United States?
What are you speaking of?
Fukushima = three MELT-THROUGHS: #1, #2, #3.
Well, actually, #3 vaporized a few hundred kilos of Plutonium when the MOX-laden SPF exploded and launched both the RPV lid and the fuel crane 100's
of meters in the air and spewed radioactive particles upwards to be picked up by the Jet Stream to arrive in North America about 72 hours later.
#4 is still under debate.
Come on over to the deep end of the pool where the real info resides…
