comment What is the Tacoma Narrows bridge doing in this picture?
Buckled actually implies something short of collapsed to me. I get the picture of something with a major structural problem but that is still standing. There is room for interpretation, I agree.

comment What does “the reactor core inventory” mean?
The fact that the OP states "I couldn't understand what 'a significant fraction of the reactor core inventory" means'" indicates the bland opacity of the phrase. It may by an accurate representation as far as it goes, but it's meaningless to most people who read that NYT article. And it's technically right to specify "radiation emitting materials" but it's the radiation that causes harm.
