From BBC’s live blog

BBC’s environment correspondent Richard Black says that it seems that delivering electrical power to Fukushima Daiichi power station offers the best hope of stabilising things. Provided that the station’s electrical systems are intact and its pumps are still functional, it should become possible to pump water back into the fuel storage ponds in reactor buildings 2 and 3, and to improve the flow into the damaged reactors themselves, he says
However, our correspondent adds that it is also possible that the earthquake, tsunami, fires and explosions have knocked out some of this equipment.
If all goes well, it is possible that Fukushima Daiichi could be back under control within a few days, he adds.
