What can happen in a week?
Saturday, 12 March: Emergency battery power for the high pressure core-flooder system for reactor 3 runs out,
Sunday, 13 March: Core damage starts occurring in reactor 3.
Monday, 14 March: The unit 3 reactor building explodes, injuring six workers. According to TEPCO there was no release of radioactive material beyond that already being vented, but blast damage affected the water supply to unit 2.
13:15: The reactor core isolation cooling system for reactor 2 stops and, shortly afterwards, the water level within the reactor starts falling.
18:00 (approximate): The water level in reactor 2 reaches the top of the fuel.
20:00: Core damage starts occurring in reactor 2
Tuesday, 15 March: An explosion in the “pressure suppression room” causes some damage to unit 2’s containment system. A fire beaks out at unit 4 involving exposed spent fuel rods from the reactor, which are normally kept in a water-filled spent fuel pool to prevent overheating. Radiation levels at the plant rise significantly but subsequently fall. Radiation equivalent dose rates of 400 millisieverts per hour (400 mSv/h) are observed at one location in the vicinity of unit 3.
Wednesday, 16 March: At approximately 14:30 TEPCO announces its belief that the fuel rod storage pool of unit 4 — which is located outside the containment area — may have begun boiling, raising the possibility that exposed rods could reach criticality.
