Latest update/photos on the Fukushima Nuclear Reactor

Here is the latest aerial photos and update on the Fukushima Nuclear Reactor. As you can see, there is major damage to the reactors. Hopefully the all out ditch effort to contain the reactors will work. Radiation has leaked and there is a 12 mile evacuation zone around the area. 160 people have been found to be exposed and they have been sent to hospitals for further treatment. Since sea water has been used to help cool down the reactors, they will not be able to produce energy in the future as sea water will corrode the reactor. Hopefully they can contain the reactors as a meltdown would be a major set back.
 
 
Currently, helicopters are being used to cover the reactors with water. At least 50 men are still trying to fight and save the reactors, we only hope they do!!
 
 
KEY POINTS:
 
  1. Washington has expressed alarm over the crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex in Japan, which has experienced a series of explosions and fires since being severely damaged by the huge earthquake and tsunami last week. Senior US nuclear official Gregory Jaczko said he thought the spent fuel rods from one of the reactors were now exposed
  2. Japanese military helicopters have dropped four loads of water on the stricken plant, trying to avert a full meltdown. Plant operators say they are trying to finish a power line which could bring the plant's cooling systems back online.
  3. Some US military personnel in Japan have received potassium iodide tablets to help counter any radiation exposure and the US has urged American citizens living within 80km (50 miles) of the Fukushima complex to leave; Japan's own exclusion zone is only 20km
  4. The number of confirmed dead and missing now stands at nearly 13,000 while some 450,000 people have been staying in temporary shelters amid sub-zero night-time temperatures
  5. Despite the crisis in Japan, the yen has risen close to its highest value against the US dollar since World War II. The BBC business reporter says the yen is being driven by market belief that Japan will need to repatriate some of its huge foreign holdings to pay for reconstruction
