As a former Senior Reactor Operator at a large PWR and with BWR experience. Yup. That is what happened (is happening). This scenario is the perfect storm. No Power, No way to get pre-planned Resources on board, No way to change crew perhaps.

I feel horrible for the operators there and wish to all my heart I could help them.

In 2007 I was in a special team assigned to figure out how to cope with scenarios EXACTLY like this. I knew it was going to Containment Flooding yesterday.

After Fukushima Unit 1 blew off the sheet metal building, Did anyone assess the Spent Fuel Pool? The Pool has to have sustained damage. Further, there has to be wreckage IN the Pool, impinging on Spent Fuel Assemblies in their racks. We don’t know if the explosion blew the water out of the pool either. HORRIBLE EVENTS.

And I bet you didn’t have plans for a historic level earthquake and a tsunami at the same time.
