From the NY Times: Japanese Officials Say Another Explosion Was Heard at Nuclear Plant

From the WSJ (before explosion at #2): Japan Nuclear Plant Troubles Deepen

Japanese officials said late Monday there is a high possibility that all three of the stricken reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex in northeastern Japan are now experiencing some degree of melting of their reactor cores that contain fuels—a condition that, if it worsens, could lead to dangerous radiation leaks. This suggests that despite various attempts to cool the reactors since Friday's massive earthquake and tsunami, the temperatures inside them remained precariously high.
