[RT] TEPCO fears 3-cm hole in Fukushima

[RT] TEPCO fears 3-cm hole in Fukushima reactor No. 2 30 Jan 2014 The suppression pool of the Fukushima Daiichi Unit No. 2 reactor may have a 3-centimeter hole in it, through which the highly radioactive water might be leaking out, the plant operator said. The information is based on the data gathered by a robot sent into the suppression pool at the bottom of the No. 2 reactor’s primary containment vessel earlier in January. Plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) estimated the damaged area could be 8 to 9 square centimeters in size. If it is a hole, it is predicted to be between 3.2 and 3.6 centimeters in diameter. http://rt.com/news/fukushima-reactor-hole-tepco-430/
