An explosion has been reported at Fukushima Daiichi unit #3. Residents, if not evacuated, are being advised to stay indoors. They’ve been trying to cool this plant down with sea water. However, earlier on today the pumps began to malfunction, making it difficult if not impossible to discern whether it was being cooled.
As of now, all residents within a 20 kilometer radius have been ordered to evacuate.
UPDATE: 7 employees of TEPCO are missing and 6 injured.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=T_N-wNFSGyQ 616 500] If you enjoy the content at iBankCoin, please follow us on Twitter
