Japan Crisis

Seems like things are getting worse.   It appears that the containment vessel and the pressure vessel (outer protective concrete shell) are both breached, radiation on outside is increasing above safe levels, and all plant personnel are being evacuated except maybe just a few.  Water used for emergency cooling is leaking out faster than they can pump it in.

Untranslated to English on the TV, but translated by my wife, the Prime Minister has talked to the plant operators telling them "prepare yourselves, only you guys can do this."   Got it?

The information being provided is sketchy, maybe there is little information.   Why don't they have cameras and robots in there?
