TEPCO Fights Humidity in No 2 Reactor – Workers Hospitalized

TEPCO has now released to the media that more than 9 workers have suffered from heatstroke, and at least two workers were hospitalized for dehydration. The weather onsite is beginning to heat up for summer, and this will make it much more difficult to accomplish tasks on-site.
The situation inside of Reactor 2 is much like that on the roof of Chernobyl. The heat, humidity, and radiation make a workers stay time a matter of minutes once inside of the reactor, even with full protective gear on. There is much work that needs to be accomplished inside of the reactor, but radiation levels extending outside of the building are rising.
