Workers Miss Deadline to Reconnect Power at Japan Nuclear Plant: March 19, 2011, 12:35 AM EDT
Seems as though the best case scenarios aren't turning out to be so successful.

Seems the old saying..."plan for the worse, hope for the best"...doesn't apply here.

Workers Miss Deadline to Reconnect Power at Japan Nuclear Plant
March 19, 2011, 12:35 AM EDT

March 19 (Bloomberg) -- Engineers missed a deadline to restore power to the crippled Fukushima Dai-Ichi atomic plant, prolonging efforts to prevent more radiation leaks as Japan’s nuclear agency advised people to cover up and avoid the rain.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. pushed back its target to reconnect a power cable to the No. 2 reactor to later today after working through the night. Power may be restored to all six reactors by tomorrow, Hikaru Kuroda, chief of the utility’s nuclear facility management department, told a briefing in Tokyo.

Troops and firefighters will again pump seawater on the plant today in an attempt to prevent fuel rods from overheating before electricity-driven cooling systems can be restarted. Prime Minister Naoto Kan said the crisis remains “very grave,” as forecasts indicated changing winds could start moving radiation closer to Tokyo this weekend.

Once they get the power connected...what system(s) is going to do the "cooling"
