My dear readers!
I’m sure you’re informed about what happened in my Japan which I left almost three years ago. But let me describe me the present situation shortly.
The aftermath of a massive 9.0 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, which happened last Friday March 11th, severed electricity to the Fukushima Dai-ichinuclear complex 170 miles (270 kilometers) northeast of Tokyo, and crippled its cooling system. Then, backup power did not start properly at one of its units. But crisis after crisis continued to develop or be revealed in the nuclear plant…conditions steadily worsened… explosions happened resulting in radiation leaks…people close to the plant had to be evacuated.
