Unit 2's Evil Halo

Fukushima Daiichi Unit 2, visible on the TEPCO 1 Cam, always has a cap of visible heat emanating from a particular location on the roof.

The screenshots don't capture the streaming motion of the cap but you can see the blue-purple and green heat signature:

In early February, TEPCO reported very high radiation levels around the external foundation of unit 2:
Lethal radiation amounts still detected at crippled Fukushima plant 7yrs after disaster
feb 3 2018

A remote-controlled inspection detected 42 Sieverts (Sv) per hour of radiation outside the foundations of the crippled Unit 2 of the plant.
Where is Unit 2's missing fuel and why is that reactor so much hotter than the rest?
