New admissions featured in an  Asahi Shimbun article  highlight the extent of the problem discovered on the pedestal inspections of unit 1 at Fukushima Daiichi earlier this year.
They confirm what was fairly obvious from the inspection photos, that a significant portion of the lower concrete pedestal that holds up the reactor vessel has had the concrete melt away. It isn’t currently known how much of the pedestal has sustained this damage, further inspections planned for the spring should confirm the extent.
