More bad news. If the workers cannot get into the turbine housing unit, they cannot get rid of the radioactive water there.

(Reuters) – Workers were evacuated on Sunday from a reactor building they were working in after high doses of radiation were detected at Japan’s stricken nuclear power plant in Fukushima, the plant’s operator said.

Tokyo Electric Power Co, the plant’s operator, said radiation 10 million times the usual level was detected in water that had accumulated at the No.2 reactor’s turbine housing unit.
