Fukushima Cooling for Reactors 1, 2 and 4 Power is off, Tepco, no idea why for over 1/2 a day now. 3/19/13

Plant after EQ 3/11/11

Update 3/19/13 1:00 PM est the Power is Still off and they don't know why. 

This is literally one of the craziest weeks.  I am beginning to believe what I have read now about how things would accumulate this week into one big mess in every way. 

TEPCO has released the fact the cooling systems for Fukushima are down for Reactors 1, 3 and 4.  They are injecting water in 1 and 3 but not 4.  They don't know why the power is off for the cooling systems though they got the power back on for the rest of the area.

It has been off since 6pm Japan time on Monday.  That means it has been off for more than 1/2 a day.

They are claiming that it would take 4 days for reactor 4 to reach the critical hot point of 65C, but we know how they lie.   They have admitted to lying about the explosions and that they hid the reactors had melted down immediately after the EQ over a year after it.

Those on the West Coast need to be aware of the situation.


Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Monday a problem with electric power has occurred at its crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, leading to the suspension of the system to cool spent fuel pools of the Nos. 1, 3 and 4 units.
The power outage at the center was temporary and power to it was soon restored. But Tepco and the NRA were unable to specify immediately why power to the spent fuel pool cooling systems of the three units remains halted.
According to Tepco, the temperatures of the water inside the spent fuel pools of the Nos. 1, 3 and 4 units was between 13.7 C and 25 C at 4 p.m. Monday.
Tepco says that it would take four or five days until the water inside the spent fuel tank at the No. 4 reactor building exceeded 65 C, a temperature level that should not be exceeded.

Update - 3/19/13 - From what I have been able to figure out, the cooling systems are still out but are partially restored to 1,2,3.
