7:44 AM March 21 ET: Some possible good news from reactor #4 — home of the potentially dried out spent fuel rods. According to Reuters, the Japanese government says power will be back soon.
6:08 AM March 21 ET: Now there are reports of smoke from reactor #2.
4:20 AM March 21 ET: The general sense throughout Sunday has been that the corner is being turned. And that’s still the sense, somewhat. However, the latest headlines from Kyodo are less encouraging. Smoke is “billowing” from reactor #3, and some workers have at least been (temporarily) been evacuated. However there other headlines about pumps working at the plant, which is obviously quite good news.
