Totally it could have been worse. But it's kind of a "heckuva job, Brownie" moment----just seems like congratulating the designers that didn't think-----for whatever stupid reason------that a quake and tsunami this powerful could happen is like applauding Brownie for not dropping a bomb on New Orleans.

My main concern now is the spent fuel pools. They are at the top of the reactor building, and may be damaged and/or exposed to the air after the hydrogen explosion.

Report just in that TEPCO has begun to inject seawater to cool the Fukushima Daiichi no.3 reactor. -Reuters

Last ditch effort now for the mixed fuel one.

The truth is that nobody really knows because nobody can get inside them too see whats going on. The Japanese government is saying what they know and leaning towards `its not too bad` so as not to cause panic , but the truth is they do not know either. There is a monitor nearby the containment buildings and that is what everybody is watching.

no link to confirm heard it on the radio but they say the people in the control room have been exposed to so much radiation that they will not survive more than a month , if that is true wow they are practicly commiting suiside to save many lives in japan, they are true heros

Yeah, here's a quick qoute from the press-conference, which on CNN right now ...

A part of the core, within the reactor is 'deforming'

Sounds like they're trying to avoid using the term "melt-down".

They also just confirmed that, pumping seawater into the reactor(s) is pretty much going to "make it very difficult" to re-use them again later. I read that as "that was our last-resort action and we're writing the reactor(s) off at this point" (my humble opinion).

Again, though - none of this is new news to anybody who's been following this thread since Thursday/Friday.

sorry must have been typing when you posted that

I agree, Been following since the start, but this is first I have seen of it on the 3rd reactor unless I missed it since mod's wanted us to come over to this thread.

Here are links to the two most recent English versions of Tepco press-releases.
Nothing really new or significant here (that wasn't already just discussed), but I'll link them anyway.

Press Release (Mar 13,2011) Occurrence of a Specific Incident Stipulated in Article 15, Clause 1 of the Act on Special Measures Concerning Nuclear Emergency Preparedness (Extraordinary increase of radiation dose at site boundary)

Plant Status of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (as of 9am March 13th, local/Tokyo time)

PS: There are a couple more releases on their Japanese language page. But, running them through a quick Google-Translate, it doesn't seem like any 'new' details. Two of them are just more (probably mandatory reporting) of radiation measurements.

edit on 2011-3-13 by EnhancedInterrogator because: added postscript.


PPS: I just saw a quick note on one of the news sites, that the original quake has been upgraded from 8.9 to 9.0!

edit on 2011-3-13 by EnhancedInterrogator because: Added post-postscript.

No problem. Inevitably, that type of thing happens when stuff is being updated real-time. If anything, thanks for the effort to keep everybody updated!

Yep, no one's going to fault you for posting breaking news! Having 3-4 posts with different sources back-to-back is actually a good thing. Now, post this info tomorrow night and then I might have to shoot you, LOL.

Yeah, I love that double-speak, my translation's are:
  • Deformed = Melted or melting.
  • Can't confirm = Don't f___ing know.
