#Fukushima I Nuke Plant During "Golden Week" Holidays - Extremely Quiet

Not much happening as far as the handout for the press is concerned.

Here's from May 2, 2012:

Containment Vessels for Reactors 1, 2, 3 still maintain pressure larger than the atmospheric pressure.

Temperatures of the Spent Fuel Pools seem slightly up from about a month ago (by 4 to 6 degrees Celsius; see the plant status report from April 2, 2012), but then the atmospheric temperature in Hamadori (coastal 3rd) of Fukushima where the plant is located was 10 degrees Celsius lower a month ago. Nowhere near the boiling temperature though.

For water decontamination, only Toshiba's SARRY is used for cesium absorption.

It is foggy and raining at the plant today. The Fuku-1 worker who tweets says construction people are working as usual at the plant during the Golden Week holidays, so are the maintenance people.

Hm, hydrogen density measurements now separated into "A" and "B" system.
Don't really understand what this means.
However, the big spread of the values measured at #3 doesn't really make me feel comfortable.
Especially in conjunction with the low "overpressure" in #3.

As far as I know reactor 3 is completely gone, are they really reporting data?
