TEPCO Removes Second Roof Panel Covering Fukushima Reactor: Reports

Japanese nuclear plant operator TEPCO has removed another panel of the Fukushima nuclear reactor's protective cover, the Asahi Shimbun reported Monday.
Part of the dome covering the station's first power generating unit was blown off by heavy winds on October 28. The damaged panel was removed three days later.

According to the news outlet, the panel constitutes about one-third of the protective dome's overall surface. Debris remaining inside the plant since the 2011 disaster could reportedly be seen from the hole.
Since late October, TEPCO has been spraying a special liquid inside the Fukushima protective cover, which would prevent radioactive dust and debris from leaking from the dome.
