RE: Update

I had heard that the rods were uncovered for some time period. I have not heard anything about a reactor or containment leak at either plant. Not sure where the quoted physicist got the info.

Now, reading from abc news that Unit 3 has a leak in the bottom (not sure of what).. ? Don’t know if credible, but the explosion appeared stronger than the first one based on the plume.

A few stories also mention the rods were uncovered to a great extent at units 2 and 3 – maybe when they were blowing down with the SRVs to prepare to inject seawater via the fire trucks…?
