Update: 3:05pm PST – CBC Report
Technicians are racing to prevent a meltdown after uranium rods were fully exposed twice Monday on a third nuclear reactor at a northern Japan power plant that was reeling from explosions at two other reactors.
The fuel rods were exposed after the reactor in Unit 2 at Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima Dai-ichi power plant because a steam vent wouldn’t open, the utility said.
Water levels were restored after they first dropped at the reactor, but the rods remained exposed Monday night after the second episode, officials said.
