Fukushima nuclear plant may have suffered “melt-through”, Japan admits
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2011/jun/08/fukushima-nuclear-plant-melt-through
Fuel rods have “probably” breached containment vessels – a more serious scenario than “core meltdown” – according to report.
The report, which is to be submitted to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said fuel rods in reactors No 1, 2 and 3 had probably not only melted, but also breached their inner containment vessels and accumulated in the outer steel containment vessels.

Or in laymans terms they are fucked.
