The Japanese Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) reported 4 
workers injured by the explosion at Unit 1. TEPCO also confirms that 
sea water mixed with boron was injected into the primary containment 
starting at 20:20 local Japan time. NISA have measured Cs-137 and 
I-131 near Unit 1, but indicate radiation levels are decreasing (no 
note on actual levels though). Release claims primary containment 
vessel is intact - hopefully this is the actual case.
