There is insufficient details at this late hour even, to really determine if there is serious meltdown going on in all but #2 which we know is cooking
Breach of containment vessels should result in massive amounts of highly radioactive water possibly going anywhere theres somewhere for it too run
The ocean is so close it is a no brainer for any escaping liquid to end up entering the sea.
What we have here is a good possibility of the mother of all dirty bombs.
I sicerely wish somebody who has the figures would do some rough totals,
How much "hot"fuel is involved?
How much depleted fuel rods and what state are they in?
WHERE IS ALL THIS STUFF?
The reactor buildings had tanks higher up where the depleted rods were stored.
With much of the several structures gone, where did the depleted rods end up?
The hot fuel which is inside the four reactors,must be way too hot for entombment i think.
They may have to cool the mess down for some(possibly yrs) time to come.
Then after yrs of pumping water, they will be able to bury or detoxify the site till its safe for life to return there.
Worst case in my mind is the escapement of a large quantity of the radio active material through the actions of leakage, and or the actions of another
possible tsunami sweeping much out to sea.....
As the plants are horribly damaged now, the force of such event may be sufficient to virtually obliterate the plants and leave little behond but a
trail of radioactive components strewn both above and below the waterline.
Also with further 6.0 and even stringer quakes continuing to strike the area at shallow depths along that same fault,The heightened possibility is all
There is an urgent need to find out just how much volume of nuke material is on site there, as well as finding out what the same amount would be
capable of causing as far as disaster scenarios.
Perhaps we are safe for now.
But this shows no signs of being a short lived crisis.
I suspect well be so tired of hearing about the ups and downs of the aftermath to this event for years that well be able to tune it out instinctively
in a generation or so.....for now i haave a mitload of unanswered questions.
