I think we all know that it's being downplayed, but if they were to fully say it chaos would break out; which in turn would make the recovery process much harder.

Explosion on 15 March, some internal damage, most likely source of radiation spike that day.

Reactor 3

Explosion on 14 March, roof damaged. Fears damage may have led to radiation spike on 16 March - although later reports said it was unclear what caused the leap in levels.

Reactor 4

Under maintenance at time of quake. At least two fires reported since.

Reactors 5 and 6

Under maintenance at time of quake. Fears overheating may lead to explosions.
Here's what I don't understand... how could the spent fuel rod pool have possibly survived the explosion in reactor #3?



Looking at the diagram, then looking back at the pictures, it seems as though the whole portion of the building that would be holding the spent rods is gone.

The diagram doesn't accurately show the building maybe. If you look at the real life photos theres buildings with the reactor "towers" on top of it.

Then men who are working to fix this at the plants are HERO'S NO QUESTION!

Ya if the diagram is close the rods are vaporized. Alot of news sources are reporting that they did indeed go with the explosion.

1900: Mr Jackzo said the high radiation levels would make it very difficult for workers to get near the reactor. "The doses they could experience would potentially be lethal doses in a very short period of time," he said, but added that the NRC's information on the situation was "very limited".

1859: More from NRC chair Gregory Jaczko. He told Congress: "We believe that secondary containment has been destroyed and there is no water in the spent fuel pool and we believe that radiation levels are extremely high which could possibly impact the ability to take corrective measures."

1837: Gregory Jaczko, head of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has said there is no water left in the spent fuel pool in reactor four, adding: "We believe that radiation levels are extremely high." Mr Jaczko was speaking to Congress in Washington and it was not immediately clear where his information had come from.
