Massive 6.2 Magnitude Earthquakes Has Hit Japan Coast Near Fukushima
2017 will probably be regarded as the year when the Earth experienced the most natural disasters. We say natural but it’s common knowledge that these ‘natural’ disasters are actually human caused. No doubt the role of climate change and the melting of the glaciers had a pivotal role in the recent bombardment of hurricanes.
Why did the Japanese government shut down the plant?
Back in 2011, the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant suffered a triple meltdown after a 9.0 magnitude earthquake just 80 miles off the coast.
The Nuclear Accident!
A 15-meter tsunami rushed over the walls of the plant to turn off the cooling stations as well as the power supply of three reactors. This led to a nuclear accident on March 11, 2011, and all three cores mostly melted within the first three days.
