TOKYO, November 12. /TASS/. The earthquake of 5.8 magnitude that struck north-eastern Japan earlier on Saturday did not create any contingencies at the country’s nuclear facilities.
Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) said that the earthquake did not affect the condition of the Fukushima-1 NPP which is located in the earthquake area. Onagawa NPP located in the Miyagi prefecture did not sustain any damages as well.
According to Japan’s meteorological agency, the epicenter of the earthquake lay at the depth of 60 kilometers in the Miyagi prefecture.
No injuries or damages have been reported. No tsunami threat was declared.
Prefectures Miyagi and Iwate are hit the hardest during the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in 2011.
