Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The first of what you wrote.

Tokyo Electric says temperatures at the bottom of the reactor are between 100 and 120 degrees Celsius, suggesting that the fuel has fallen and is being cooled in the water below.

The utility says it does not believe the fuel has completely melted and spilled through the bottom of the reactor. It adds that instead, the fuel appears to be being cooled inside the reactor.

But maybe these are premature conclusions: the new makeshift water level gages might have been unfit for the purpose, too.
