I believe that picture is from the refinery fire - not a nuclear plant.
Smoke ascends over an industrial area as flames are seen in Sendai, northern Japan, Saturday, March 12, 2011. Japan launched a massive military rescue operation Saturday after a giant, quake-fed tsunami killed hundreds of people and turned the northeastern coast into a swampy wasteland, while authorities braced for a possible meltdown at a nuclear reactor
According to NISA, the Unit 3 cooling water level gauge, the fuel rods is about 2.2 m is exposed shows. However, the injection pipe water from the fire on the follow, the furnace pressure is stable. 52-minute dose of radiation around 1:00 pm on December 13 has been declining after peaking in 1557.5 microsievert, "It's full of contradictions states" are trying to. The water level is expected to total failure, followed by exposure to a large fuel rod temporarily, it reacts with hot water to cover the zirconium fuel, hydrogen is generated. Leak in the reactor and the hydrogen reacts with oxygen in the air, that there is a risk of explosion. NISA and TEPCO So, hurry and seawater cooling the fuel rods to reduce the emission of hydrogen, to consider how removing the hydrogen accumulated in the containment. However, workers in a nuclear reactor because it is too 近Dzukezu explosion hazard, it is not clear whether the continuing evolution of hydrogen.
Readings at monitoring posts
The measurement of radioactive materials in the environmental monitoring
area near the site boundary by a monitoring car confirmed the increase in
the radioactivity compared to the radioactivity at 04:30, March 13.
