I just heard on HNK news stream that in the plant #2 that the fuel rods are completely exposed, and the coolant levels are BELOW the gauge that monitors the level of coolant. Can anyone confirm if the fuel rods are melting?

Looks like it was a busy night.

Redneck is back monitoring for useful info.

I heard the same report however I really don't think anyone there really knows what's going on inside. I mean think about it the radiation levels and heat are more than likely pretty high in there and I doubt anyone has actually been inside that building since the explosion so they are relying on the gauges that still work. If the coolant is lower than the gauge can read then they are either fully exposed or mostly exposed. Also the generators seem to be down again and they have no way to pump in sea water. How many hydrogen explosions do you think the reactor can take I mean really...

I don't know if this is off topic but this is interesting: 7th Fleet repositions ships after contamination detected

however it seems this is a low dosage of contamination detected, and could very well just be from the steam that's being released as a pressure-release measure and not much cause for alarm, however i felt i should post it here.

On Kyodo News they are saying that:-

BREAKING NEWS: Radiation twice the maximum seen so far detected at nuke plant Monday: TEPCO

sorry can't link yet

If, as that says, plutonium is insoluble, there is no danger to the US from the MOX fuels.

Japan, on the other hand, could be in for a hard ride.

I heard on the radio last night that each of the containment buildings contain between 60 and 70 tones of fissionable material. Does this sound right to you?

BBC news channel reporting fuel rods in reactor 2 (Fukushima) are fully exposed!


Officials now expect a full or partial meltdown!

Okay im back. The latest picture of the #3 reactor shows some kind of white vapor rising up from it. Also looks to be heavily damaged.

As I have been saying,

the Japanese, do not know how severe this is, BUT it looks like that whole Nuclear site, has melted down. EXPOSED fuel rods, explosions, YA I would say their is dangerous levels of radiation in Japan, The press will down play it thou, the politician will play it down, because I mean think about it.... Tell Tokyo a Radiation cloud will be headed for them tomorrow, with the cold front coming..


Sad story, I am believing the plant melted down, and allot of people are going to get sick, if not die. I am not sure how it may effect the west coast, someone will be needed to measure the air for radiation out there, hopefully a public private group since it appears the press and the governments are not telling the truth right now, and shame on the press for not trying to find it.

Do you have a link to that pic?

Doesn't seem to be much out there for it.

Fuel rods fully exposed


Fuel rods at the quake-hit Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant's No. 2 reactor were fully exposed at one point after its cooling functions failed, the plant operator said Monday, indicating the critical situation of the reactor's core beginning to melt due to overheating.



As a result, the cores of the No. 1 and No. 3 reactors have partially melted.

On Sky News they are saying that nuclear fuel rods ARE melting inside three reactors - surely that in itself is a 'meltdown'

Japan is in trouble and worried,

Following the most recent announcements that even though 2 metres (about 1/2) of the rods had been covered by seawater following the earlier emptying, the water has again dropped suddenly and just now breaking on news 24 live and on their ticker:



#
1552: Japan has officially asked the UN nuclear watchdog the IAEA for experts to help in the current nuclear crisis, AFP reports, citing IAEA chief Yukiya Amano.


BBC

EDIT TO ADD:

#
1603: Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Taiwan are to screen food imported from Japan for radiation, AFP is reporting.

Kind Regards

Thanks. Nice aerial photo.

If that steam coming out is constant, it may mean that the reactor containment is breached.
