This article is about what a robot sent into the reactor building is finding.

Lines of particular note:

“On Friday, Tepco found steam spewing from the basement into the building's first floor.”  (that just can’t be good.)

“Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Saturday it has detected radiation of up to 4,000 millisieverts per hour in the building housing the No. 1 reactor at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant.”  (400 rem per hour will present some issues)
