More on new explosion

Facts are still hard to come by, but here’s a link to the Guardian article:

Here’s what TEPCO posted on its English-language site, but I’m afraid something is lost in translation:

At approximately 2:30 pm on May 31, big sound was confirmed at the
  southern side of the reactor building of Unit 4, where wireless unmanned
  heavy machineries were removing rubbles. It seemed that the unmanned
  heavy machinery tucked and broke some cylinder. Nobody got injured.
  There was no change in the data of the monitoring post.

About Robert Singleton

By day, I work for a call center. In my spare time, I try to save my hometown (and planet) from a nearly constant onslaught of greedheads, lunatics and land developers. I live in a fictional town called Austin, Texas, where I go to way too many meetings.
