Nuclear Plant Updates as of April 12, 2011

Here are some updates from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear reactors as of April 12 at 15:30.

  • They have spread an anti-scattering agent to prevent radioactive materials from dispersing in an area near the common pool.
  • A fire was discovered at 6:38am on April 12 at the water spout sampling building for reactors #1 to #4 (not sure what that means: 1から4号機放水口サンプリング建屋). After some initial fire extinguishing efforts, the flame and smoke disappeared before 7:00am. It was later (9:12am) confirmed that the fire was out.
  • Between 12:00 and 13:14, sampling work was done to determine the state of the fuel in the spent fuel pool in reactor #4.
