1 Foot Tsunami Hits Fukushima … No Reported Damage

Nuclear Reactors Worldwide Vulnerable to Earthquakes and Flooding

A 1-foot hightsunami hit the Fukushima coast today after a 7.3 earthquake struck around 200 miles off the Japanese coast.

Fortunately, there is no report of damage at this time.

Remember that Japanese seismologists warned that Fukushima was vulnerable to earthquakes and tsunamis long before the 2011 earthquake.  And the giant 2011 earthquake may have “awakened” the fault … increasing the likelihood of other big earthquakes in the region.

It’s not just Japan …

American reactors may be even more vulnerable to flooding and earthquakes than Fukushima. And here.
