Now I'm pissed off that they can tour the plant but can't get in #4 and offload with wet rod assembly chambers, lead lined. For manipulation and hooking, use robots that are heavily shielded and crane supported (to reduce weight on R4). Use the biggest mofo'ing cranes possible, that can lift the lead and water cask by themselves. But use 3 for redundancy. Radio linked. Then place into CSFP, or other large temporary but much stronger and reliable pool. Just offload the damn things at all cost to reduce further airborne impact, if it is leaking or boiling as bad as reports suggest. One thing pilots are taught, is that if there is a problem, do something about it. Or you die. Don't just look at the dials or the smoke coming out!edit on 4/5/12 by GhostR1der because: (no reason given)

But he said that privately "they're probably more scared #less about the pools than they are about the cores. They know they're really risky and dangerous."

(UPDATED with Video) Tornado in Ibaraki Prefecture Nothing seems to go right for Japan since March 11, 2011...
From Yomiuri Shinbun (5/6/2012):
* Northern part of Tsukuba City in Ibaraki Prefecture was hit by tornado at about 45 minutes past noon on May 6, 2012.
* As of 2:40PM, at least 30 houses were destroyed, 30 people injured, including heavily injured.
* About 17,000 households are without electricity.
The union that represents more than 400 of the workers at the Pilgrim nuclear plant on Plymouth has scheduled a vote this week on whether to authorize leadership to call a strike, after contract negotiations with the Entergy Corp.-owned plant have stalled over health care costs and working conditions.

I've been reading loads on all this the past few days but so far have not come across any kind of map that has a stab at predicting where the radioactive particles would travel globally in the event this all blows big-time.
“I asked Japanese prime minister Noda, if he thinks Futaba citizens are Japanese people, but Japanese government submit SPEEDI data to US and concealed it from Japanese people. Even now, SPEEDI data is not given to Futaba town.
If we have had that information, we would have escaped to Sendai. We were not even informed of venting. Tepco also explained they would stop, cool down, and close the reactor in case of an accident, so it’s absolutely safe, but Fukushima accident happened. We don’t even have a place to live.
Radiation took schools, hospitals, jobs, and everything from us and everything is collapsed. I’m losing my hair and have nosebleed everyday. The other day, I asked for blood test at a hospital in Tokyo because I’m exposed but they refused it. We were even exposed and there is even no treatment, or proper inspection. Medical check up for Fukushima citizens are not detailed enough either.”
