Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The 3rd article I listed already mentions meltdowns at the No 1 reactor.

My last link is the video of Prof. Christopher Busby. He is active with interviews these days. In the following clip (watch from 2:20) he envisions three scenarios, two of them very bad, and the most likely is one of those. That likely scenario: the radiation at the plant gets so high that work is abandoned (and the work is already desperate nonsense), leaving a China syndrome meltdown (without Hollywood actors to save us) and the stuff would just (mainly) poison the northern half of Japan. But more terribly, MOX plutonium may cause a critical reaction - and that would be an unimaginable problem for the whole globe. And the milder scenario is that they manage to pour water forever.
