Correction from International Atomic Agency

They’ve changed what was written earlier today and said that connecting power to Reactor 2 has NOT been completed.   I’m really sorry I posted that before.  I’m just as upset as you are.  This was the best part of my day.

“Japanese authorities have informed the IAEA that engineers were able have begun to lay an external grid power line cable to unit 2. The operation was completed at 08:30 UTC. The operation was continuing as of 20:30 UTC, Tokyo Electric Power Company officials told the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency.

They plan to reconnect power to unit 2 once the spraying of water on the unit 3 reactor building is completed.

The spraying of water on the unit 3 reactor building was temporarily stopped at 11:09 UTC (20:09 local time) of 17 March.

The IAEA continues to liaise with the Japanese authorities and is monitoring the situation as it evolves.”
