Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Monday a problem with electric power has occurred at its crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, leading to the suspension of the system to cool spent fuel pools of the Nos. 1, 3 and 4 units.
The incident, however, so far has not affected the ongoing water injection to the Nos. 1 to 3 reactors [...]
No abnormality has been detected in radiation levels in areas surrounding the plant in Fukushima Prefecture. [...]
