9 Years On: TEPCO Officials, Including President Tomoaki Kobayakawa (Far Left), Offer Silent Prayers at Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Plant at Exact Time of 9.0-Magnitude Quake's Occurrence


     The 9.0-magnitude earthquake and subsequent monster tsunami waves on March 11 2011 severely damaged Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant. A breakdown of cooling systems left nuclear reactors overheating, resulting in core meltdowns. The accident and suspension of other plants in the quake-hit areas have caused serious power supply shortages in various parts of eastern Japan including Tokyo.
