I wonder what this may do to the crippled reactor?  That thing must be very fragile & still dangerous.

Apparently there is something bad near there - and there will definitley be after shocks. For the moment we haven't seen a sizable Tsunami - there are some small ones.

update a few minutes ago: 
The cooling system of the third reactor at the Fukushima nuclear power plant has stopped circulating water following a powerful 7.3 offshore earthquake. TEPCO said it managed to restart the system some 90 minutes after the failure.

LIVE UPDATES: 7.3 Fukushima quake & tsunami

According to the Nuclear Regulatory Agency the cooling system servicing the Unit 3 spent fuel pool is not able to circulate water to cool the nuclear fuel because of a broken pump.
