I just saw they are resorting to using CH47's to coop up water and dump it on the reactor bud. This is bad they are in the last ditch efforts to cool
them and so far have been unsuccessful.
I can tell you this method is the worst but only option left to them. Once all the sodium left behing from evaporation contains the rods there will be
no stopping the burning process.
you have days to get out my friend. Days.
Good luck and god speed my friend.
I would be on the next flight out of Narita. If a total cataclismic event takes off over there I can gaurentee you may need to get the the us embassy.

A Message to American Citizens from Ambassador John V. Roos
March 16, 2011
Today our hearts remain with our Japanese friends who, after suffering this devastating tragedy just four days ago, have to undertake recovery and
reconstruction and address the ongoing nuclear emergency.
We understand that many of you are anxious and have questions in the shadow of the Fukushima emergency, since we are in the midst of a complex,
constantly changing, and unpredictable situation. In this fluid situation, our commitment to our citizens is to accumulate accurate information and
assess it sufficiently in order to make important judgments.
Since the first reports of trouble with the reactors, American nuclear experts have worked around the clock to analyze data, monitor developments, and
provide clear assessments on the potential dangers. While at times we have had only limited access to information, I am personally committed to
assuring that our experts have as much access and information as possible, and the necessary resources to understand the situation. I have personally
been deeply engaged in these efforts.
After a careful analysis of data, radiation levels, and damage assessments of all units at Fukushima, our experts are in agreement with the response
and measures taken by Japanese technicians, including their recommended 20 km radius for evacuation and additional shelter-in-place recommendations
out to 30 km.
Let me also address reports of very low levels of radiation outside the evacuation area detected by U.S. and Japanese sensitive instrumentation. This
bears very careful monitoring, which we are doing. If we assess that the radiation poses a threat to public health, we will share that information and
provide relevant guidance immediately.
The United States will continue to work around the clock to provide precise and up-to-date information supported by expert analysis to ensure the
safety and security of our citizens and to help Japan in its time of great need. U.S. citizens in need of emergency assistance should send an e-mail
to JapanEmergencyUSC@state.gov with detailed information about their location and contact information, and monitor the U.S. Department of State
website at travel.state.gov.
