Unit 2 Update: CRD Sensor at 200, TEPCO Still Acts Like There Is A Problem

The CRD (control rod drive) sensor is sitting at about 200c currently.  Hydrogen is at .06%, up from .04% but still very low and well below the ranges that could cause an explosion. Feed water spray is at 7.6 and core spray at 10 m3/h. These are in the higher range of where they have been pumping in water indicating TEPCO still considers there a problem at unit 2 even though yesterday they tried to re-declare cold shutdown and that the entire incident is bad sensors rather than temperature increases in the fuel.

Yesterday TEPCO also announced they were decreasing water flow at unit 3 to compensate for increased water at unit 2. So far temperatures at Unit 3 have not increased.
