90% of the workers fled Fukushima despite being ordered not to

Contradicting previous reports, 90% of the workers at Fukushima fled, including managers, despite being ordered not to. The previous story was they were told to evacuate, leaving a small crew to deal with the reactor meltdown.

TEPCO is still trying to spin this, claiming the order was “vaguely worded” but the (now deceased) plant manager expressed surprise that so many had left. Would it have made a difference?
