Japanese nuclear plant briefly switches to emergency power after quake paralyzes Hokkaido

Tomari nuclear plant on the island of Hokkaido suffered a power outage and was forced to briefly switch to emergency generators following the 6.7 earthquake, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission said.

Emergency diesel generators were activated to supply electricity to maintain cooling of nuclear fuel rods in the pool. Since the plant is undergoing a safety review by the Regulatory Committee, no nuclear fuel was present inside the station’s three reactors at the time of the incident.
