The Removal of Fuel From Fukushima Reactors Begins, Eight Years After the Disaster

(Worthy News) - The operator of the tsunami-wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant has begun removing fuel from a cooling pool at one of three reactors that melted down in the 2011 disaster, a milestone in the decades-long process to decommission the plant.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Monday that workers started removing the first of 566 used and unused fuel units stored in the pool at Unit 3. The fuel units in the pool located high up in reactor buildings are intact despite the disaster, but the pools are not enclosed so removing the units to safer ground is crucial to avoid disaster in case of another major quake.

TEPCO says the removal at Unit 3 would take two years, followed by the two other reactors. [ Source: Time (Read More...) ]

    Revelation 8:9 is fulfilled ..... and very few people even noticed ..... yet many people claim to know the Bible really well.
