Fukushima No. 4 reactor is tilting and at least two walls of building are bulging outwardThe latest findings could add to concerns over the state of the No. 4 reactor building, which houses on its upper floors a cooling pool filled with more than 1,000 spent nuclear fuel rods. [Right, so let’s keep talking about ‘Fast and Furious’ and the Personhood Amendment.] 26 Jun 2012 A heavily damaged reactor building at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant has a slight [?!?] tilt, but the tilt does not pose a risk to the integrity of the building, according to the plant’s operator. The Tokyo Electric Power Co., or Tepco, said in a report Monday to Japanese nuclear regulators that at least two of the walls of the No. 4 reactor building are bulging outward at various points and that the building is tilting. The biggest bulge measured about 1.8 inches about a third of the way up the building, the report said.
