Nuclear plant leave notice
JAPANESE authorities urged 2000 residents living by a nuclear plant in Fukushima to evacuate. Officials in Fukushima issued the advice for residents living within a two-kilometre radius of the No. 2 reactor of the Fukushima No. 1 plant, operated by Tokyo Electric Power Co. Earlier, the government declared an atomic power emergency but said that no radiation leaks were detected among its reactors. Prime Minister Naoto Kan said he declared the emergency to enable authorities to implement emergency measures. Kan said earlier that no radiation leaks were detected from Japan’s nuclear power stations after the massive quake and tsunami struck.
