Japan Reactor Undamaged By Earthquake; Will Reopen

THE DAILY YOMIURI (JAPAN)-One of the three reactors at the Onagawa Nuclear Power Station in Miyagi Prefecture, Japan will restart by the end of January 2006. Officials shut down the reactors, operated by Tohoku Electric Power Company, on 16 August 2005 due to fears of the facility's structural integrity following a magnitude 7.2 earthquake. The government authorized reopening the No. 2 reactor after Tohoku Electric officials concluded from their examinations that the earthquake did not damage the reactor. Although the shock from the earthquake exceeded the acceptable levels of the original reactor design, the earthquake did not significantly damage the reactor or affect the safety of the facility. Tohoku Electric official expect to restart Onagawa's No. 1 and No.3 reactors after they conduct further examinations on those two reactors.
