Apparently CESIUM is present and that means the meltdown has likely occurred or occuring.
Japanese nuclear authorities said that there was a high possibility that nuclear fuel rods at a reactor at Tokyo Electric Power's Daiichi plant may be melting or have melted, Jiji news agency reported on Saturday.
The news comes as authorities battle to contain rising pressure in other nuclear reactors damaged by the massive earthquake which triggered a tsunami, killing at least 613 people.
A state of emergency has been declared for five nuclear reactors at two different sites in Fukushima, located about 250 kilometres northeast of greater Tokyo.
"Even in the worst-case scenario, that would mean some radioactive leakage and equipment damage, but not an explosion. If venting is done carefully, there will be little leakage. Certainly not beyond the 3 km radius."

Heard on msnbc on satellite radio that there are four reactors in danger. Not four power plants but four reactors at one location. Still in ditch.
