Heavy Emissions Continue at Fukushima Daiichi Today

Unit 1 looks particularly bad:

Yesterday I noted that it seemed as if the main source of emissions visible on the TBS cam was adjacent to unit 1.

I've not seen such heavy emissions for several months, if not longer.

Something has gone awry. I wonder whether the ice tunnel failed or some other problem with the underground melted corium.
