Japanese nuclear plant holds tsunami & meltdown drills

A major anti-disaster drill has been held at a nuclear plant in Hokkaido, the northernmost of Japan’s main islands. The exercise followed a similar drill in Shikoku, and was based on the scenario of a powerful earthquake and tsunami striking the region.


Hokkaido is the second largest island of Japan which is home to the Tomari Nuclear Power Plant Unit 3 reactor. Due to over a dozen volcanoes it is prone to seismic activity.

In order to avert possible consequences similar to the March 2011 Fukushima disaster, Hokkaido Electric Power Company organized a massive drill which involved some 14,000 participants, Japan’s NHK news reported.
