Cindy,

Thanks for getting back to me quickly. I told Cheryl Rogers (Wisconsin) that we could not provide the  assumptions to States at this time. She understands but is puzzled that the US is telling Americans in Japan to evacuate to a distance further from the plant than what the Japanese government is telling its citizens. I told Cheryl that I would pass that comment to NRC decisionmakers.

Jim and RSLOs,

The RASCAL inputs below are for your information. Please do not share this information outside of NRC.

Jim, would you please communicate to Cheryl Rogers that we are not able to share this information outside of the NRC at this time?

I’ve been advised by the Protective Measures Team that the following assumptions were made in RASCAL:

Unit #2: 33% core damage and containment leakage
Unit #3: damage to the spent fuel pool, 50% of fuel melted
Unit #4: spent fuel pool leaked and all of the fuel melted

I hope this provides the clarification that you were seeking.
