35 tones of refueling machine on fuel storage rack in reactor 3

35 tones of refueling machine was found dropped over the fuel storage rack in reactor3, Tepco announced in their press conference of 4/13/2012.

They assume it dropped when reactor 3 had the explosion.

They watched it with a remote controlling camera operated by earthquake-resisting control room.

Tepco only published 4 pictures, which are too dark and not clear for today.

The 35 tones of refueling machine is planned to be taken out in the end of 2014.

According to Tepco, the size of pool is 12.2×9.9×11.8m, the machine is 14m. There are 514 assemblies of spent fuel and 52 of new fuel in the pool. (566 assemblies in total)

When it dropped, it damaged the pool as well. From the analysis result of water in the pool, Tepco assumes the fuel is not severely damaged.
They still haven’t checked if the machine lies on the bottom of the pool.

    I’m here in northern California, north of San Francisco and inland. I keep wondering when the mutant fish creatures will leave the sea and swim up the Sacramento river to where I am. I imagine the mutant creatures will be terribly angry and either very large or possessing mutant powers, such as being able to shoot out tentacles (or maybe just angry mutant intention) that will fasten onto deer, cows, dogs but especially humans and through the tentacles (or angry intentions) suck out the life force. I’m certain that this will not outright kill but will empty the cow or dog or human of the will to live and leave behind the husk that will itself then be a mutant and will continue, in the case of afflicted humans, to go to work or school and will ponder the comparative virtues/vices of Obama/Romney. I have a funny feeling, though, that this scenario is already unfolding and, in fact, Obomba and Romney have already become among the first victims. Otherwise, one has to do a diligient search to learn that if #4 blows we in California should seal up our houses so the radiation can’t get in and then we are to wait until the situation gets better. Somehow there will be food and safe water and clean air but, IMHO, anything that is not contaminated will only make the mutants angrier. Please advise….
