Yeah, no kidding. It also looks like externally, the Lochbaums and Lymans are being quoted versus officials, since official sources can’t or won’t comment.

Another site says this:
Kyodo news agency quoted the company as saying that the radiation level was rising in the turbine building and the pressure had risen to 1.5 times the designed capacity.

I hope that’s not correctly interpreted as 1.5x design pressure of the RPV…

I was hoping we would send out an internal email about this event. Isn’t that why we get test messages during drills?

Wonder about the details of how this played out. I still see stories talking about the primary pressure rising, now going on 13 hours after the event initiated.

Later on Friday Hillary Clinton said the U.S. had assisted in the emergency by sending coolant to the plant. “We just had our Air Force assets in Japan transport some really important coolant to one of the nuclear plants,” Clinton said, according to Reuters. “You know Japan is very reliant on nuclear power and they have very high engineering
standards but one of their plants came under a lot of stress with the earthquake and didn’t have enough coolant.”
