No. 3 plant; further troubles...

There is a story on the wires now that a Japanese Government panel (and I haven't figured out who that is yet) has made a statment about fifteen minutes ago that the reactor vessel at Fukushima Daiichi No. 3 plant may be damaged.

Given some of the information I've related earlier today, and the findings of heavily contaminated water in the turbine building that very probably went through the reactor, I might be inclined to agree.. although it's by no means clear what other information they might have, and have considered, that we haven't seen yet.

UPDATE: Apparently this information came out during the untelevised Q&A portion of NISA's briefing. NISA seems a bit unhappy with TEPCO's Rad Health management as well.
