Temperature levels at Fukushima Daiichi Reactor 2 have exceeded 90 degrees Celsius.  TEPCO said that it does not know why the temperature is rising.

If the temperature is confirmed to exceed 80 degrees, it will not meet the condition for the government’s definition of the state of a cold shutdown, which is below 100 degrees, due to the margin of error.

The margin of error associated with the temperature is up to 20 degrees as it cannot be verified if the reading is accurate, according to Tokyo Electric Power Co., the plant operator.
