Report on the finding of Xenon inside the contention building of #2 reactor, and the general state of this reactor:
Press Release (Nov 04,2011) Report to Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry with regards to the detection of Xe135 at Unit 2 of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station
Report regarding the levels of Plutonium, Strontium, Cesium and Iodine in seawater (open seas):
Press Release (Nov 04,2011) Detection of Radioactive Materials from Seawater near Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (217th release)
Report on the detection of Plutonium, Strontium and other radiactive materials on the soil at Fukushima Daiichi:
Press Release (Nov 04,2011) Detection of radioactive materials in the soil in Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (37th release)
Report on the detection of Plutonium and other radiactive materials in seawater at Fukushima Daiichi's water intake channel:
Press Release (Nov 04,2011) Nuclide Analysis Results of Radioactive Materials in Seawater taken near Intake Canal of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (data collected on November 3)
TOPICS: Japan; News/Current Events; Technical
KEYWORDS: earthquake; fission; fukushima; japan; nuclear; science; tsunami
Traces of Plutonium and Strontium are found near the power plant. Much of the Cesium found is the shorter half-life kind Cesium-134. Radiactive Xenon has been detected when the ventilation system of #2 reactor's contention was powered back again. Its levels did not change when borate water was injected, and they fit what might be spontaneous decay of reaction products.

That doesn't surprise me a bit, in fact it would be expected. They basically did a fuel melting scenario with loss of AC power for a while.
As an SRO at a US PWR, I ask the question: Why would that surprise anybody?

Report regarding the levels of Plutonium, Strontium, Cesium and Iodine in seawater
Iodine, atomic number 53. occurs naturally in seawater. We need Iodine to survive.
"Iodine is found on Earth mainly as the highly water-soluble iodide I-, which concentrates it in oceans and brine pools." (wiki)
Maybe I'm missing something with this Iodine thing.
(the other stuff isn't good, but Iodine?)

So there could be many “number ones” at Fukushima (Daiichi means number one).
