Cooling system failed at Fukushima No. 1 plant after quake
Fire reported at Onagawa nuclear facility
TOKYO — The Japanese government has issued an evacuation order to thousands of residents near a nuclear power plant rocked by the giant 8.9-magnitude earthquake that hit the Pacific Rim nation Friday.
Japan's nuclear safety agency said the order applied to more than 2,800 people followed a government emergency declaration at the Fukushima No. 1 power plant northeast of Tokyo after its cooling system failed in the wake of the quake.
The agency said workers are currently scrambling to restore cooling water supply at the facility, but that there was no prospect for an immediate success.
