"New electric power line is being connected to Fukushima reactor #2."
According to NHK, electric power won’t be restored at Fukushima Dai-Ichi until sometime this afternoon, U.S. time, at the earliest. (Japan is 11 hours later than EDT.)
The spent fuel pools at Units 1, 2 and 3 contain a total of 219 metric tons (or 241 "short" tons, the measure used in the United States) of fuel rods.
