Enformable: Workers at Fukushima Daiichi drill new hole in torus of Unit 2 for survey [...] Workers found problems as they ran into steel pipes and metal grates which made it difficult to insert survey instruments. TEPCO is planning a survey that will measure the amount of radiation to ensure that no fuel is melting.
