Oh boy....
Even if it is damaged unless it has a full meltdown which is still unlikely there won't be anymore than local issues.

And if we get the worst luck ever and all 3 have a full meltdown
Then what?

Footage of the explosion? What we do know is that reactor 3's explosion was bigger than reactor 1's... perhaps explosion size could help us tell here

Breaking News

Part of the container of a troubled nuclear reactor appears to be damaged, the Japanese government said early Tuesday, indicating possible serious radiation leaks.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano told reporters that "damage appears on the suppression pool" -- the bottom part of the container, which contains water used to cool down the reactor and control air pressure inside.

"But we have not recorded any sudden jump in radiation indicators," Edano said without elaborating.

If confirmed, it will be the first direct damage to the reactor since a massive earthquake and tsunami battered Japan's northeast coast on Friday, knocking out nuclear plants in Fukushima, north of Tokyo.

No sudden jump in radiation indicators?
Could their indicators be untrustable/faulty at all? Just asking, there still seems to be much unclearness over whether radiation is out or not.

Watching NHK live on Ustream, they say that radiation levels did jump. Also explosion happened a few hours ago and still no pics/vids...interesting.

i just heard that also

they also stated that pressure is dropping in the suppression pool

Yeah was wondering that myself. NHK's cameras are glued to that External Containment Building. If there was an explosion perhaps it wasn't another hydrogen explosion ?

News Flash - The explosion is feared to have damaged the reactor's pressure-suppression system, Kyodo says. It adds that "radiation tops legal limit" after the explosion.

More details on the reported blast at Fukushima's reactor 2. The explosion is feared to have damaged the reactor's pressure-suppression system, Kyodo says. It adds that "radiation tops legal limit" after the explosion
:/
