  • Tsunami warning for Fukushima after strong earthquake hits Japan


    A tsunami warning for waves up to three metres has been issued after a 6.9 magnitude earthquake hit northeastern Japan.

    People are being warned to evacuate low-lying areas and Tokyo Electric Power Co was checking its nuclear plants for any damage.

    The epicentre is not far from Fukushima's Daiichi plant, which in 2011 had a nuclear meltdown following Japan's strongest-ever earthquake - a 9.0.

    The operator of the plant said things appeared to be normal after Monday's quake, according to Japanese public broadcaster NHK.

    Powerful quake hits Japan, Fukushima residents urged to flee tsunami

    An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.3 hit northern Japan on Tuesday, the Japan Meteorological Agency said, generating a tsunami that hit the nation's northern Pacific coast.

    The earthquake, which was felt in Tokyo, was centered off the coast of Fukushima prefecture at a depth of about 10 km (6 miles) and struck at 5:59 a.m. (2059 GMT) the agency said.

    A 60 cm (2 foot) tsunami had been observed at Fukushima's Onahama Port and a 90 cm (3 foot) tsunami at Soma soon after, public broadcaster NHK said. The region is the same that was devastated by a tsunami following a massive earthquake in 2011.

    A tsunami warning of up to 3 meters (10 feet) has been issued.

    One woman suffered cuts to her head from falling dishes, Kyodo news agency reported, citing fire department officials.

    Tokyo Electric Power Co, known as Tepco, said on its website that no damage from the quake has been confirmed at any of its power plants, although there have been blackouts in some areas. Tepco's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant caused Japan's worst nuclear disaster when it was knocked out by the 2011 tsunami.

  • Not again! Massive 7.3-magnitude earthquake triggers fears a 10ft tsunami is about to hit Fukushima in Japan where a assive wave triggered a nuclear meltdown five years ago


    An earthquake of magnitude 7.3 struck early on Tuesday, local time, off the Japanese coast, some 67 km northeast of Iwaki, the U.S. Geological Survey said. The USGS reported the depth of the quake at 10 km. A tsunami warning is in place for the east coast of the country (inset) and people are being warned to evacuate immediately in Fukushima (main). A tsunami wave is estimated to reach three metres high.

  • Fukushima nuclear cooling system back online

    By

    nine.com.au staff

    March 31, 2011: The struggle to gain control continues at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan, nearly three weeks after the country's quake and tsunami disasters.

    A cooling system at one of Fukushima’s nuclear plants has been restarted after a 7.3 magnitude earthquake and a small tsunami hit Japan’s northeast coast.

    Tokyo Electric Power Co told national broadcaster NHK the water cooling system in reactor number that that supplies cold water to the nuclear rods in Fukushima’s Daini power plant had stopped.

    Early reports show the cooling system is back online.

    A tsunami has just been measured at Fukushima after a 7.3 magnitude earthquake hit Japan

    The power company is monitoring other reactors at Onagawa and the sister plant in Daiichi, Fukushima which was the centre of a catastrophic nuclear disaster in the 2011.

  • Matt_ADMIN_Matt_ADMIN_ Administrator
    An update as to why the Fukushima nuke plant's cooling systems shut down: apparently the quake and tsunami caused the water to decline in shore, so the systems shut down automatically. TEPCO says they were able to restart it all an hour and a half later.

  • I'm about 400km north of Fukushima, and not so much as a rumble here, fortunately.

    No one has mentioned the tsunami here at work, although I imagine the TV news is covering it nonstop for lack of anything else going on here.  My wife commented briefly about it while watching TV news during breakfast, and I received a couple of panicked emails from people on the other side of the world, and that's about it as far as commotion goes.
    People in this world look at things mistakenly, and think that what they do not understand must be the void. This is not the true void. It is bewilderment.

  • Here's the updates from ENE News from early this morning:
    Obviously the event has now passed but there is information about failure of the cooling systems that may interest.
