Press Release (Mar 16,2011)
Transfer of Fukushima Dai-ichi Power Station Workers
At approximately 6:00 today, an abnormal noise began emanating from nearby 
the pressure suppression chamber of Fukushima Dai-ichi Power Station. 
Given that the pressure within this chamber had decreased, it was believed 
that this was an indication that an abnormality had arisen. From this 
point on, while water injection operations are still underway, the 
temporary transfer to a safe place of TEPCO employees and workers from 
other companies not directly involved with this work has begun. Currently, 
at Fukushima Dai-ichi Power Station, the remaining workers are doing their 
best to secure the safety and security of the site.

The parameters for Unit 2's nuclear containment vessel and the containment 
vessel show no significant change.

We are aware of and sincerely apologize for the great distress and 
inconvenience this incident has caused to not just those inhabitants 
residing in the immediate vicinity but also society at large.
