After massive explosion at Reactor No. 3, TEPCO said it was too dangerous and time to evacuate plant

June 13th, 2011 at 08:54 AM

Then on March 14, the gravity of the plant’s situation was revealed by a second explosion, this time at Reactor No. 3, and a startling request that night from Tepco’s president, Masataka Shimizu: that Tepco be allowed to withdraw its employees from the plant because it had become too dangerous to remain.

When he heard this, Mr. Kan flew into a rage, said aides and advisers who were present. Abandoning the plant would mean losing control of the four stricken reactors; the next day, explosions occurred at the two remaining active reactors, No. 2 and No. 4.

“This is not a joke,” the prime minister yelled, according to the aides. ... erous-stay
