Firefighters and workers from Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) are fighting to curb rising heat at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
Over 1,000 tons of water have been sprayed on unit 3 to cool it off. Pressure rose in that unit but appears to have stabilized.
Units 1 and 2 are reportedly now connected to the electric grid and being tested. Units 5 and 6 now have cooling capability and power restored. Water has been reported in the storage pool of unit 4, although its status is otherwise unclear.
Food contamination has been found in local milk and spinach. For more information:
