If one of the reactors melts down, then it and the pressure vessel would fall through to the 'core catcher'. This allows the materials to spread out and cool, all well within the safe containment zones of the NPP.

Sigh... Math time...

1 rads = 0.01 sieverts
20 rads = 0.20 sieverts
50 rads = 0.50 sieverts
100 rads = 1.00 sieverts

Exposure and Mortality Ratings

1-2 Sv(100 - 200 rads) - Mortality without medical care 0-5%, mortality with medical care 0-5%

2-6 Sv(200-600 rads) - Mortality without medical care 5-100%, mortality with medical care 0-50%

6-8 Sv(600-800 rads) - Mortality without medical care 95-100%, mortality with medical care 95-100%%

8-30 Sv(800-3000 rads) - Mortality without medical care 100%, mortality with medical care 100%

>30 Sv(>3000 rads) - Mortality without medical care 100%, mortality with medical care 100%

You are certainly not going to die from a sudden exposure to 50 rads at once. If you're talking about almost immediate death you need an inordinately high amount of radiation exposure. The kind you get wandering through a reactor or taking a swim in the cooling pool.

I've been exposed to more than 50 rads at a time probably about 4-5 times in my life and I've in total been exposed to about 6400 rads in total that I know of. I localized radiation therapy for cancer several years ago but I received the majority of the radiation to my torso so major organ systems were affected rather badly.

Good I was watching bbc news a while back and it came up that almost all the water in the rector was almost gone, so I hope you can clarify that for me.

Then it was Greys. Can't remember which unit of measure it was. So sue me, instead of giving me a lecture about "Math", just correct which units I'm using.

OP updated with current relevant news and status of reactors.

Cliff notes:

Reactor #2 and #3 unstable at this point. Emergency cooling underway at both.

Reactor #2 experienced massive cooling failures, rods fully exposed to air multiple times.
Reactor #2 experienced venting problems which were later cleared.
Reactor #2's water/coolant level not rising. Might be due to excess heat or a leak, both have been acknowledged as possibilities. The latter is particularly concerning.

Reactor #3 has had a defect identified in it's containment vessel.

I didn't originally post the article. Due to Jetstream patterns Vancouver, Canada would be hit much earlier and with bigger dose than San Jose if ever.
I wasn't aware this was a known troll/paranoia site though. Nevertheless I'll investigate further in what the province is doing. If dairy really has stopped farming, emergency centres relocated, and hospital beds really cleared, I'll be sure to notify everyone.
Say what you will, but I won't be told to calm down. Plenty of other reports suggest that radioactive material may be already moving over the Pacific, and I'd like to get more info about this if possible as well as determine what exactly to do and when to do it.

Now, concerning the actual reactors...
Reactor 1's containment building is gone, but reports have stated that they may already have been able to put it into cold shutdown.
Reactor 2 only experiencing the beginning of failure
Reactor 3's more dangerous and is still experiencing cooling problems, but the containment is still there...but how much is the balance of good and bad here

Or has more happened since then?

yes, it is likely that radioactive material MIGHT reach the coast.

Will it effect you at all? Very unlikely

This is not a thread to be free and loose with information. There are plenty of people around here that don't know much about the subject and there are even some ready to hide out in the Arctic Circle if things appear to be going south. Also we've all got the Internet so it's really easy to confirm information based on personal memories. Not trying to bash I just don't need to answering any more panicked questions.

And yes you were probably talking about Grays or Sieverts.

1 Gray = 100 Rads = 1 Sievert.
