The IAEA is now saying that yesterday's explosion at the Fukushima Daiichi plant may have affected integrity of main containment vessel.

It says there is a 30km no-fly zone in place around the plant.

Without specifying the reactor affected, this news is meaningless.

IAEA Update on Japan Earthquake
After explosions at both Units 1 and 3, the primary containment vessels of both Units are reported to be intact. However, the explosion that occurred at 04:25 UTC on 14 March at the Fukushima Daiichi Unit 2 may have affected the integrity of its primary containment vessel. All three explosions were due to an accumulation of hydrogen gas.

Interesting – that rules out steam explosion, Japanese sources didn't.
