PALINGENESIA
JAPÓN EN EMERGENCIA NUCLEAR

(The Guardian)

The Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant reactor No 7, in Niigata prefecture, Japan, was damaged in the quake.

Thousands of people are being evacuated from the area around a nuclear reactor after its cooling system failed in Japan’s devastating earthquake.

A state of emergency was declared around the Fukushima No 1 power plant as a precaution, because a cooling system was not working after the quake, officials said.

Residents within a 2 mile (3km) radius of Tokyo Electric Power’s (Tepco) Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant had been told to evacuate, Japan‘s chief cabinet secretary, Yukio Edano, told a news conference. Kyodo news agency said around 3,000 residents were being moved out.

Tepco confirmed that water levels inside the reactors were falling but it was working to maintain them to avert the exposure of nuclear fuel rods.
The company was trying to restore power to its emergency power system so it could add water to the reactors, a Tepco spokesman said.
"There is a falling trend (in water levels) but we have not confirmed an exposure of nuclear fuel rods," he said.
"We launched the measure so we can be fully prepared for the worst scenario," Edano said. "We are using all our might to deal with the situation."
A fire broke out in a turbine building and was extinguished at the Tohoku Electricity company’s Onagawa nuclear plant in north-east Japan. Smoke was seen coming from the building, which is separate from the plant’s reactor.
