Goodness! He just can't seem to catch a break this year, can he?
Anderson Cooper and his CNN crew - along with various other news outlets - were forced to evacuate the area near the Fukushima nuclear plant yesterday, after they realized that the series of explosions released dangerous levels of radiation!
He explained via Twitter:
Latest on nuke emergency. We're doing 2 hour #ac360 from 10p to 12p live from #japan
Due to safety concerns we are leaving this area an therefore not live for the second hour
Finally found enough fuel, now am trying to drive north away from possible nuclear problems
Thinking about the people still working at the fukushima daiichi nuclear plant. What bravery.
100s nuke workers evacuated from fukushima daiichi plant but some 50 remain trying to cool reactors. I pray for them
we think iodine is only if you've been exposed to radiation, not something you take protectively. We hope we haven't been exposed
Glad that they got out of there when they did, and hopefully our Silver Fox and his crew aren't in any danger of radiation!
Our thoughts are also with the brave workers risking their lives by staying at the power plant. Stay safe and best of luck!
