Interview with Chris Harris, Nutrimedical Report, Apr. 3, 2014 (h/t MsMilkytheClown1):

  • At 6:30 in — Chris Harris, former licensed Senior Reactor Operator and engineer: The scary part of finding one hot particle, they’ve actually found several, well there’s got to be more. They’re very hard to detect, they’re very potent. We have to treat the homes almost like an operating room […] a clean area on the inside instead of the on the outside. That makes a lot of sense to me, the thing is if you’ve got one particle, there’s going to be more, a lot more. Because we know that the core, at least out of Unit 3, was squeezed out and spread all over the place like a virus.
  • At 12:30 in — Harris: What’s likely to happen, based on experience if another earthquake of some size […] If that happens it could be anywhere from mild to extremely severe […] At one end of the spectrum you can lose power again — another period of a black out at the plant. If that happens once again you lose all the cooling systems, you could literally to square zero, square one again. And be in a situation where you’re melting again, you’re not cooling. […] The other end of the spectrum is the most severe, you have actual physical to the structures supporting the equipment necessary for cooling. And some of the equipment is outside, not internal to the actual plant, it’s in a non-seismic area. […] Then what do you have? You have massive releases of the radioactive material […] And of course right on up to the worst where, you actually have building collapse.
