2 reactor cores damaged?

Tokyo Electric Says 2 Nuclear Reactor Cores May Be Damaged


March 16 (Bloomberg) -- A fire and aftershocks struck the crippled Fukushima Dai-Ichi power plant today, as officials battling to prevent a nuclear meltdown said fuel rods at two reactors may have been damaged.



Temperatures in the spent-fuel rod cooling pools of the shuttered No. 5 and No. 6 reactors were rising as of 7 a.m. today to about 60 degrees Celsius (140 degrees Fahrenheit), said Tsuyoshi Makigami, head of nuclear maintenance at Tepco. The building that houses the inactive No. 4 reactor at the nuclear plant has two holes in it and water in the spent fuel pool may be boiling, Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said yesterday.


Are 5 and 6 going to be next?

2.43pm South Korea plans to send an emergency shipment of cooling material to Japan to help control its quake-damaged nuclear reactors. Tokyo has asked for 52 tonnes of boron, a key material used for regulating nuclear chain reactions, as it is running short of the metalloid to cool the overheated Fukushima reactors, Seoul said. "We've sent boron samples. Now, we are scraping up all we got," a South Korean official said.

How do they build a road when the air is so contaminated.

Sorry if this picture has been posted already, but it is hard to keep up with my two little boys who have the flu and the threads on here at the same time. But I saw this one and just wonder how they can say anything short of 'evacuate now'.

Nope that one is new to me Thanks Where is the reactor in #3? Graphics showed it was pretty tall inside the building. That looks very collapsed

Not entirely sure if this is update regularly, or was a on-time snap-shot, but I thought I'd share ...

Can somebody take a gander and see if it's legit? If so, it's a great resource.

I have no idea. Scary thought, eh. Cause I thought it would be a lot taller as well.

And by the way, the pic came from MSNBC in one of their slide shows.

Thanks for posting that pic. Also, is it just me or does it look like there is a guy in a black t-shirt standing in the hole in the wall of reactor 4? WTH?

Great find! This looks pretty good they have different times for monitoring, looks like updates every 3 hours.

looks very legit to me..I know that the mayors etc.. were told to provide readings..so this would make sense

btw check out the levels in Horiguchi

Cool, if I'm reading it right, they have data for Ibaraki (between Tokyo and Fukushima), but not for Fukushima or Miyagi yet (probably the two most interesting, due to obviously reactors being in Fukushima, and I believe the greatest tsunami impact in Miyagi - might not be right on that).

TEPCO has removed public access to a webcam showing the Fukoshima reactors. Now a password is needed in order to observe the complex.
