Most recent JAIF condition chart

A quick look at the most recent JAIF chart shows no major change in status but does show their official statement on the emergency efforts to cool the spent fuel pools.

MOST RECENT JAIF STATUS CHART

Note that containment pressure on No. 1 unit is now "unknown" - perhaps this detection element has failed.

One thing to note that they've had on most of these charts is the containment status on No. 2 plant... They're listing D/W or Drywell pressure as "unknown" while S/P or Suppression Pool pressure is "atmosphere," meaning that the suppression chamber is essentially considered compromised.
