Nuclear reactor damaged in Japan during the quake.
Reports are mixed on how bad this really is but it is scary. I work in the shadow of Three Mile Island every day so this is something never far from my mind.
I will not use this post to make any kind of statement Pro or Con on the subject of nuclear power. I am however quite concerned for the local citizens as I clearly recall those frightening days of March and April 1979 as well as Chernobyl 25 years ago.
I hope they can get the coolant flowing again and keep the core quenched to prevent a meltdown or explosion. Some of the reports are encouraging. It seems the Japanese engineers learned form our mistakes or at least I hope so.
