Tokyo Electric releases new image of reactors
Tokyo Electric Power released on Thursday an image of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant taken the previous day. It says the image convinced them to prioritize the No.3 reactor.
The utility firm says the aerial image was taken at 4 PM on Wednesday.
The image shows the exposed iron framework of the No. 4 reactor. It also shows part of a light-green crane designed to handle nuclear fuel.
The firm says it believes that the shining white object below the crane is the surface of the spent fuel cooling pool.
They concluded that the No.4 reactor's pool still contains water to cool down the nuclear material.
But the image shows white smoke billowing from the No. 3 reactor, and shows a serious damage to the roof and walls.
They could not confirm whether the No.3 reactor's cooling pool still contains water. This convinced them to make it a priority for water injection.
The outcome of the operations by Self-Defense Forces and the police is not yet clear.
