On the extension cords and cooling pumps of Fukushima, Japan's reactors

"Cooling pumps at one of Japan's crippled nuclear reactors
are damaged beyond repair and will need to be replaced...

An emergency order has been placed for new pumps for Unit 2 at the plant,
but it's unclear how quickly they would arrive...

...reactor 2 is the only one of the critical 4
which did not in fact suffer massive explosive damage.

So if that one is beyond repair, what happens to the other three?

And just what will this much praised power supply at Fukushima actually be connected to?

Concerns about the core issue at crisis management most certainly remain,
as all those behind operation Extension Cord finally realize
there is nothing to connect the power to."
