Japan safety agency: roof cracked at Fukushima No 4 reactor | Reuters

(Reuters) - Two workers are missing after Tuesday's explosion at one of the reactors at a crippled Japanese nuclear plant, the country's nuclear safety agency said.

The agency did not identify the missing workers, but said they were in the turbine area of the No.4 reactor at the Fukushima nuclear plant, which was damaged by last Friday's earthquake and tsunami.

Agency official also told a news conference there was a crack in the roof of the reactor building.

It's true TEPCO reported two employees unaccounted for on Friday already: Plant Status of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (as of 0AM March 12th )
Two subcontract workers were injured in the nuclear power station premise.  
One with a broken bone was transported to the hospital by an ambulance and
the other by a company car.
Further, there are 2 TEPCO employees whose presence has not been confirmed.
