The cooling system of the third reactor at the Fukushima nuclear power plant has stopped circulating water following a powerful 6.9 offshore earthquake. TEPCO said it managed to restart the system some 90 minutes after the failure.

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.9 hit northern Japan on Tuesday, the Japan Meteorological Agency said, generating a tsunami that hit the nation’s northern Pacific coast.

The U.S. Geological Survey initially put Tuesday’s quake at a magnitude of 7.3 but downgraded it to 6.9.

Japan’s chief government spokesman Yoshihide Suga said that a government task-force had been established to deal with the quake and tsunami, and called on people in affected areas to evacuate, according to media outlet NHK.

NHK also reported that water could be seen moving back and forth in Onahama Port and that tide levels were rising in some areas on Japan’s eastern coast. Television footage showed ships moving out to sea from Fukushima harbors as tsunami warning signals wailed.

All nuclear plants on the coast threatened by the tsunami are shut down in the wake of the 2011 Fukushima disaster. Only two reactors are operating in Japan, both in the southwest of the country. Even when in shutdown nuclear plants need cooling systems operating to keep spent fuel cool.

At Fukushima Daini,Tepco said that its water-cooling system for spent fuel at reactor 3 had stopped working at 6:10AM but that there was enough water in the pool to keep the fuel cool, posing no immediate danger.

Five years after an accident at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan, some scientists continue to find found small amounts of radioactive material along the West Coast of North America. And some of them say we should expect to see this in the ocean for decades to come. Elevated levels found off the coast of Japan show that the situation is not yet under control, and that the facility is still leaking radiation.

To this day, Japan’s side of the story is this: Overall, things are under control with the construction of an “ice wall” to prevent the continued releases of contaminated water into the ocean, and fishing has resumed in all regions except those within 10 kilometers of the reactors.

Truth be told, more than 80 percent of the radioactivity from the damaged reactors ended up in the Pacific, from the earthquake of 2011.

The quake aftershock in 2011 was 9.1 magnitude, where as this one was 6.9, with the disaster of 2011 still being felt throughout the Pacific, Japan cannot afford another radiation disaster.

The western coast of the U.S. has elevated radiation levels, but scientists say that they are still within the safe range.   It will be interesting to see how global scientists investigate the latest quake and radiation levels from the Fukushima plant.

Japan reported that no immediate danger came from this quake, they also said that back in 2011.
