Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
TEPCO are now saying that reactor water failed in number one within 16 hours of the earthquake, temperatures reached 2800 degrees, and fuel slumped to the bottom where it has burned through in small ammounts. They are also saying that they are unsure of the levels in 2 and 3, so judging by their usual media relations, we'll find that 2 and 3 are melted on Wednesday. They Aare also saying that gas from 3 caused the  explosdion in 4

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
