NUCLEAR experts have warned that pumping sea water to cool an earthquake-hit Japanese nuclear reactor was an “act of desperation” that may foreshadow a Chernobyl-like disaster.
This report totally aggregated from CNN News – that’s Huffingtonese in the US for shared with a link back to CNN- [10:31 p.m. ET, 11:31 a.m. Tokyo] Japan’s nuclear safety and industrial agency reported sounds of an explosion at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant’s No. 3 reactor, according to Japanese public broadcaster NHK. White smoke could be seen rising from the facility at 11 a.m. Monday. Workers have been flooding this reactor and the plant’s No. 1 reactor with seawater to cool them after the earthquake and tsunami damaged the reactors’ cooling systems.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said a day earlier that accumulating hydrogen gas “may potentially cause an explosion” in the building housing the No. 3 reactor at the Daiichi plant. A similar scenario played out Saturday, when a blast caused by hydrogen buildup blew the roof off a concrete building housing the plant’s No. 1 reactor. The reactor and its containment system were not damaged in the explosion at the No. 1 reactor.
