Tokyo (CNN) -- Officals were training workers Monday to spray the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant's stricken reactors with concrete -- one of several efforts underway to curb the release of more radioactive material.
so now they say all six are at risk of melt down!!! wonder if they know what is really going on?
The other five reactors, too, are in various states of disrepair -- all subject to intense efforts to avert full or partial meltdowns and the release of radioactive material.
The plant's No. 3 reactor has been a special concern, with a nuclear safety official estimating 1,170 tons of water between sprayed between roughly 9 p.m. Sunday to 4 a.m. Monday alone.
Earlier, officials said that they were monitoring that reactor to determine whether to release gas in order to reduce mounting pressure in the containment vessel. The pressure buildup, specifically from excess hydrogen gas, had caused explosions at that reactor and at the Nos. 1 and 2 reactors. Late last week, three holes apiece were drilled into the Nos. 5 and 6 reactors in order to alleviate pressure.
