People were in the building at Chernobyl during the worst parts of the accident - with no radiation protection. Said it felt like "pins and needles' on their face. A lot of those people are still alive today. Guy on TV last night said the rods in Japan are 550 degrees - my household oven goes to that temp. The 3 Mile Island meltdown had the rods melt only 3/4 of an inch into the floor which was many times thicker. Say a prayer or give money to the flood victims.
