The operator of the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant says data analyses suggest damage to its reactors may have caused cracks and openings in the reactor containment vessels equivalent to a 10-centimeter hole.
Reactors 1 through 3 at the plant suffered nuclear fuel meltdowns after the March 11th earthquake and tsunami. This is likely to have created holes and cracks at the bottom of the pressure vessels protecting the reactor cores and damaged the containment vessels.
Boldfaced emphasis added by me.
Not one. Not two. Three meltdowns.
The quake was March 11. Here it is May and they finally reveal three meltdowns.
How long before they admit the evacuees can never return home?
How long before we’re told where the hell all that leaking radiation is heading?
This news was buried at the bottom of Drudge. Even he has lost interest in it.
So how will we know?
Even in this Internet Age, it seems stories can still be buried and forgotten.
