Latest 2AM local update

A new status update for Fukushima Daiichi has appeared from TEPCO, although it is timestamped 2 AM and it is now 7 AM in Tokyo which reveals no further details about Daiichi No. 1 that were not revealed prior.

An earlier release indicated that seawater injection had stopped at about 10 PM local after another earthquake, off shore near Fukushima but apparently this did not lead to further damage or another tsunami and injection has restarted.

The other three seriously affected plants at Daiichi, and those at Daiini, continue as before except those at Daini have reached pressure limits and will have to vent in the near future.
