so what happened to the spent fuel rods in reactors 1 2 and 3? are those stored in the other reactors(ie 4)
I don’t know- good question.

All the spent fuel for the site is stored in reactor building 4.
The Spent Fuel pool is now the biggest worry, it is NOT in a containment vessel, it is exactly what it sounds like, A POOL. If the water boils off, the rods will be exposed to air and will melt, releasing huge amounts of radiation.
