Good morning Sir,
Unfortunately this is the best we have at the moment. The attachment in the ET/liaison team report this morning simply stated possible core damage on Fukushima Daiichi unit 1.

The TEPCO site disclosed that some workers at the unit were injured and one was contaminated near 100 mRem.

Some images of an explosion at Unit 1 are on the web.
