China Syndrome
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_Syndrome

The 'China Syndrome' refers to the most drastically severe meltdown a nuclear reactor could possibly achieve. In this case, the reactor would reach the highest level of supercriticality for a sustained period of time, resulting in the melting of its support infrastructure (meltdown). The uranium in the core would behave in a similar manner to a delta-class fire, self-sustaining temperatures in excess of 2000°C. Since these temperatures would melt all materials around it, the reactor would sink due to gravity, effectively boring a hole through the reactor compartment's floor.[5]

Japanese media reported separately that a leak was possible at the plant as water levels fell.

RE: Nuclear Power plant Onagawa on fire, Fukushima malfunctions
State of emergency is declared at 2 Japanese nuclear plants

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said the nuclear power plant in Fukushima developed a mechanical failure in the system needed to cool the reactor after it was shut down after the earthquake.

Meanwhile, an administrator at the Tohoku Electric Power Co's Onagawa facility said the process for the cooling reactor is "not going as planned," adding that "nuclear emergency situation" has been declared.

Mankind is sooo predictibly fallible that we should not be messing with such things.

Evacuation range increased to 3 km?

Just wondering...... The residents are ordered to evacuate... Evacuate how exactly? Everything is underwater. It's not like they can just hop in their car or get on the train....

RE: Nuclear Power plant Onagawa on fire, Fukushima malfunctions
Details from the RSOE website concerning the event description and status updates for the nuclear reactor issues at the Fukushima Nucelar Power Plant:
http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/woalert_rea...-29877-JPN

Event Description:

Japanese authorities declared a state of nuclear emergency due to malfunctioning at the cooling system at the Fukushima 1 nucelar power plant, Msnbc reports. No radioactive leaks were reported so far. Officials said there was no immediate danger at the facility. According to Kyodo news agency, an emergency core-cooling unit had been activated at the power plant operated by Tokyo Electric Power Co., but without further details. All other nuclear power stations in Japan were closed following the major earthquake on Friday.

[Emphasis mine.]

Situation Update:

Japan ordered thousands of residents near a nuclear power plant to evacuate on Friday following a massive earthquake that caused a problem in the plant's cooling system. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said the Fukushima No. 1 power plant was not leaking radiation. The plant is in Onahama city, about 170 miles (270 kilometers) northeast of Tokyo. Japan's nuclear safety agency ordered more than 2,800 people in the area to evacuate following the government's declaration of a state of emergency at the plant. The quake triggered a power failure and when a backup generator also failed, the cooling system was unable to supply water to cool the reactor. The reactor core remains hot even after a shutdown. The agency said plant workers were scrambling to restore the water supply. There was no prospect for an immediate success.

[Emphasis mine.]

Details from the RSOE website concerning the event description and status updates for the nuclear reactor issues at the Onagawa Nuclear Plant:
http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/woalert_rea...-29875-JPN

Event Description:

Japan is in a state of atomic emergency as a cooling system fails at one nuclear reactor, and a fire rages in another. A fire broke out earlier in the turbine building of Onagawa nuclear plant in Miyagi Prefecture, the Kyodo News reported. An administrator at the Tohoku Electric Power Co, which operates at the facility, has admitted the process to repair the cooling reactor is "not going as planned." The company asked people nearby to stay calm, the official TV news channel NHK reported.

Situation Update No. 2
On 11.03.2011 at 13:34 GMT+2

The plant is just south of the worst-hit Miyagi prefecture, where a fire broke out at another nuclear plant. The blaze was in a turbine building at one of the Onagawa power plants; smoke could be seen coming out of the building, which is separate from the plant's reactor, Tohoku Electric Power Co. said. It has since been extinguished. Another plant at Onagawa is experiencing a water leak.

Situation Update No. 1
On 11.03.2011 at 12:36 GMT+2

A fire is reported to be burning in the turbine building of the Onagawa Nuclear Power Plant, NPP, in Miyagi prefecture in the aftermath of the strongest ever earthquake to hit Japan. The NPP is owned by Tohoku Elec's. Japan authorities have announced they turned off 11 nuclear units without causing any damage. The country has 55 total such units. An emergency situation had been declared at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant. The Japanese Economy Ministry announced power supply to one of the units has been stopped because its cooling system has failed. There are no reported radiation leaks. Electric power has been cut off in many regions of the country; over 4 million homes are reported to be without power in the capital Tokyo. Many fires are burning, including one in an oil refinery near the capital. 22 aftershocks have been registered after the initial one with magnitude between 5.4 and 6.5 on the Richter scale, according to the US Geological Survey.
