Last 50 workers evacuated from nuke plant
UPDATE: The Tokoyo Electric Power Co. says workers have returned to the plant.
Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant where multiple explosions have kept 50 workers fighting day and night to cool fuel rods and prevent a total meltdown has been evacuated, according to breaking news reports.
The plant was heavily damaged in the March 11th 9.0 earthquake and tsunami.
The unstable situation at that and other nuke plants has caused a run on potassium iodide
along the California coast in the western United States, which can guard against the effects of radiation. This news will probably accelerate the demand.
