Looks like that 12 hours prediction was pretty spot on.

Gov't mulling new steps to bring Fukushima nuke plant under control    TOKYO, March 30, Kyodo

The government is considering applying new measures to prevent the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant from further spreading radioactive particles, its top spokesman said Wednesday.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano told a news conference that the government and nuclear experts are discussing ''every possibility'' to bring the plant under control and that some measures that have been reported by the media are included in their options.

Media reports said that the government and the experts have been studying the feasibility of new steps such as covering reactors of the plant with special cloth to reduce the amount of radioactive particles flying away from the facility and using a big tanker to collect the contaminated water. (My bold.)

People should be paying us for this. :)

Somewhere I saw a comment by, I believe, a TEPCO official to the effect that it might be difficult to get a tanker close enough to the plant to transfer contaminated water. Of course this is why I had suggested using one or more of the empty freshwater barges, which we know can get close enough, to shuttle between the plant and a tanker.
