It's really hard to be 100% certain with what the news is saying, but my assumption would be that they are trying to prevent steam bubbles (Nucleate boiling) from forming in the cooling lines via atmospheric venting. Basically once those lines contain steam bubbles their ability to exchange heat is greatly reduced.

The venting would (should) still occur inside the containment building.

Hey, thanks for the kind offer. I'm all good so far here; stayed in all day so far just watching the news and sitting through some slight tremors (wow they seriously don't stop). Will head to the grocers soon to see if thy have restocked yet, else it's going to be rice and Campbells mushroom soup for the next few days hahaha.

It was hilarious when I called home after the initial quake. It went a little something like this:
"Hi mom, it's me."
"Oh hi! Hows it going?!" (super super cheerful and happy)
"Uh mom, turn on the news. I'm just calling to say I'm okay."
"Whats on the--... (two second pause) OMKSNFHDHNSBFNFJ ARE YOU OKAY?!?!"

Lol will never forget that pause hahaha.

Not at all... other than the constant news feed and the general state of caution you can see in everyone, you could barely tell that a massive quake hit exactly this time yesterday. Seriously, chalk it up to their preparedness fo Hess things.

Murdoc, there's not much damage in the city. You see some crumbled sidewalks but even that is pretty rare. The city really doesn't look like it was hit at all. Unfortunately, can't say the same for Fukushima, Miyagi an Aomori

That one knocked out a few fiber optics under the ocean for a few months. The same thing probably happened again.

thats good at least. I know if something like that happened here I'm sure looting would go on. Has there been anything like that in the more damaged areas or is everyone acting normal I guess you can say?
