Recently, TEPCO released a petulant press release they plan to inspect the heavily damaged reactor Unit Number Four for signs of tilting. The press release coincided with photos published on the web purportedly showing a large crack running from the foundation to just below the fifth floor of the south wall of the Unit Number Four building where all the spent fuel rods on the site are stored, “open to the elements because a hydrogen explosion blew off the roof during the early days of the accident and sent the building into a list”.
