Following a third explosion at the Fukushima Daiichi complex, the reports this evening about the new blast are seemingly contradictory.
“Some early reports in the Japanese press suggested the latest explosion amounted to a different and more critical problem than the previous two,” the New York Times reports. While the BBC says, “Some staff have been evacuated, but initial indications suggest it is not on the same scale as the previous blasts.”
Likewise there are conflicting reports about whether the explosion compromised the reactor’s containment vessel.
