Press TV an Iranian News has so far had breaking news on the reactors. It issued about an hour ago that ALL the reactor cooling system has shut down. That looks like meltdown is imminent. There was also a dam that collapsed northeast Honshu and flooded towns along the river.
Hey can you clarify where they say this? I am looking now and watching and I see nothing saying melt down is imminent. BTW I love this site just found it today.

Again, unconfirmed and been out all day, just catching up on things. Sorry if repost.
The operation at Fukushima No.1 plant to lower pressure of the containment vessel has been suspended due to high radiation levels at the site
Pressure of the reactor container is rising as its cooling system became dysfunctional due to a blackout and power generator breakdown. This has raised concern about possible damage to the container.
