"All control rods inserted."
Here's an interesting phrase "Hot Standby"
- At around 9:25 AM on November 2, 2012, an alarm indicating a power system abnormality ("Common M/C*11A generating line ground fault" and "Common M/C2A generating line ground fault") went off. At around 10:00 AM, it was found that the power cable connecting Common M/C1A and Common M/C2A was damaged during operation as a result of site investigation. Since smoke was coming out from the damaged portion of the cable, the incident was reported to the fire department at 10:25 AM. As the power supply to the damaged cable was stopped at 10:49 AM, the smoke stopped coming out at 10:51 AM. From 11:00 to 11:23 AM on the same day, power receiving at Common M/C1A was restarted and the related equipments*2 were turned back on sequentially. As a result, no problem was found with the operation of the equipments after being restarted. At 11:38 AM, it was confirmed that no problem was found with Units 1-4 plant facilities, accumulated water transfer facility, water treatment facility, common pool facility and Units 5-6 plant facilities. Upon site investigation, the fire department judged that the incident was not a fire at 1:37 PM on the same day. There was no injury due to the incident, and so far no significant change has been found with the monitoring post data and the plant conditions. The cause is currently being investigated. *1 M/C: Power panel *2 The nitrogen gas separator A (which receive power from Common M/C1A) and the nitrogen injection into Unit 1 PCV and Unit 1 suppression chamber were temporarily suspended as the power receiving at Common M/C1A was stopped.
- At 2:09 PM on November 5, Unit 4 spent fuel pool alternative cooling system was stopped for adding anti-freeze liquid into the secondary system circulation water to prevent the water from freezing during winter time (The pool water temperature when the system was stopped: approx. 24℃). The system will be suspended until November 6. There will be no problem with the pool water temperature control considering that the pool water temperature increase rate is estimated to be approx. 0.418℃/h.

Info seems to be getting really cut off, now.
KORIYAMA, Fukushima -- A briefing session on thyroid tests conducted on children in the prefecture 18 years and younger following the outbreak of the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant was held for prefectural residents on Nov. 4.
The screenings began in October 2011, and the first round for 115,000 children -- or about one-third of the total -- has thus far been completed. Residents, however, had criticized the process as lacking in sufficient explanation.
At the briefing, participants voiced dissatisfaction over having to put in requests for thyroid images to receive them. In response, Fukushima Medical University professor Shinichi Suzuki, who leads the thyroid screenings, said, "We will consider releasing the images (without requiring requests)."
