Tell me about it, I don't get why they're not paying some newbie to anchor this live all night.
There is someone who's been broadcasting this LIVE and up to 18 hours a night/day - I hope you find this link helpful.

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'.
Fukushima No. 1 plant
Reactor No. 1 - Cooling failure, partial melting of core, vapor vented, building damaged Saturday by hydrogen explosion, seawater being pumped in.
Reactor No. 2 - Cooling failure, seawater being pumped in, fuel rods fully exposed temporarily, vapor vented, building damaged Monday by blast at Reactor No. 3, damage to containment vessel on Tuesday, potential meltdown feared.
Reactor No. 3 - Cooling failure, partial melting of core feared, vapor vented, seawater being pumped in, building damaged Monday by hydrogen explosion, high-level radiation measured nearby on Tuesday, plume of smoke observed Wednesday, damage to containment vessel likely.
Reactor No. 4 - Under maintenance when quake struck, fire Tuesday possibly caused by hydrogen explosion at pool holding spent fuel rods, pool water level not observed, fire observed Wednesday at building housing reactor, no water poured in to cool pool.
Reactor No. 5, No. 6 - Under maintenance when quake struck, temperature slightly rising in spent fuel pool.

zorgon: I'm no expert, but perhaps the top of the reactor is visible directly below the arrow on #3? Definitely looks like a domed-vessel shaped object and the size would appear approx correct
If the spent fuel is indeed stored above the reactor as they have been saying, then it would appear that the storage area is totally destroyed on #3 To think how many precautions are taken when handling waste fuel during transport/burial and then to see a picture like this...
Assuming the truth is being told about the radiation readings,

Media seem to be slow to update with latest news BBC still reporting workers evacuated from Fukushima all very confusing
