BBC:


# 0650: Japan's government is insisting that radiation levels across the country are safe, says the BBC's Chris Hogg in Tokyo, but a German businessman has told our correspondent that some foreign firms are starting to move their expatriate staff south - or out of the country altogether - because they don't have confidence in what the government is saying any more.

TEPCO says it's considering releasing hydrogen from Fukushima Daiichi No. 2 reactor building. -Reuters

I hope they didn't lose their ability to pump seawater in.

Watch this one. The ONLY reason to release hydrogen is if they think it is going to blow....

both explosions so far have been hydrogen explosions. Dont think it was during a release, but not sure about that.

Russian news are saying that most likely they couldn't control the hydrogen release and it lead to the explosion.
here's a nice article ttp://translate.google.com/translate?hl=ru&sl=ru&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fgazeta.ru%2Fscience%2F2011%2F03%2F12_a_3552917.shtml
But I'm afraid the google's translation is awful

TEPCO has completed releasing hydrogen from the Fukushima Daiichi No. 2 reactor building. Earlier we said they were considering releasing it, but they had already released it.

So seawater pumping has been halted at both 3 and 2? Or just 2?

I believe seawater pumping has stopped due to the difficulties of doing so and the fact that they were running out of water for the job.
