Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Tokyo Electric Power Company says it has opened the doors and begun ventilation at the No. 2 reactor of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

The restoration work inside the No. 2 reactor has been hampered by humidity of almost 100 percent due to steam from the containment vessel and spent-fuel storage pool.

TEPCO opened the doors halfway at 8:51 PM on Sunday. It plans to fully open them at 4 AM on Monday if there are no problems.

The utility has been using an air purification device for more than a week to reduce the radioactive concentration inside the building.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
