Status of the Nuclear Reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant


Untung selasa kemarin tidak jadi berangkat ke Jepang, jadi ngeri sendiri melihat perkembangan informasi tentang Gempa,Tsunami, berikut bencana Nuklir yang terjadi di Jepang.  Meskipun sedikit telat konfirmasi dari travel agent pun sudah saya terima.

As you know, IME Workshop had been cancelled with considering the damage of big
earthquake 
hit northern part of Japan last week , we already cancelled your flight reservation .
Please just ignore or discard your e-ticket which you have.

Anecdotally ,we,our family,and Hanshin Travel had no serious damage ,
and have no problem to do work.

We hope prompt recovery ,and your visit to Japan in near future

Best regards
Yokoyama & Takei

Reactor 1

Current Status The outer building is damaged and it is presumed that there was a partial meltdown. Small amounts of radioactivity have been vented. March 12, 8:20 PM Workers start flooding the reactor with seawater in a desperate effort to cool it. MARCH 12, 5:00 PM Radioactive materials, including an isotope of iodine, are detected.

Reactor 2

Current Status A partial meltdown is presumed to have occurred. The containment vessel has been breached and some radioactivity has vented. MARCH 15, 6:14 AM An explosion near the pressure suppression pool damages the containment vessel around the reactor. MARCH 12, 3:48 AM Operators start injecting water into the reactor to cool it.

Reactor 3

Current Status The reactor building has been damaged, the containment vessel may have ruptured and radioactive steam may be being released. MARCH 17, 11:00 AM Helicopters begin dumping water on the building in an effort to cover the spent fuel, which may have been exposed to the air. MARCH 14, 11:01 AM An explosion damages the reactor building and the primary containment vessel. Eleven workers are injured.

Reactor 4

Current Status Spent fuel rods in a water pool may have become exposed to air, emitting radioactive gases. An explosion and fire have damaged the building. MARCH 17, 5:00 AM The chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission says the water covering the spent fuel rods may have boiled off. MARCH 16, 5:45 AM A fire is reported in the building. An inspection 30 minutes later finds no sign of a fire.

Reactor 5

Current Status The reactor is shut down and the building is not damaged. But there is concern that spent fuel in the building may become exposed to air. MARCH 11, 2:46 PM An earthquake hits just off the coast, sparking a tsunami. The reactor was already shut down for maintenance.
