Tokyo Electric Power Company says it has found no problems with its Fukushima Daiichi and Daini nuclear power plants as a result of Sunday’s quake.

TEPCO says it ordered Daiichi plant workers to move away from coastal areas to higher ground after tsunami advisories were issued for the Fukushima coast. It also stopped moving low-level contaminated water from the plant to a giant steel storage barge.

The company confirms the safety of all the workers.

TEPCO says the work to inject cooling water into the reactors is proceeding as usual. It adds that no problem was found with external power supply.

As for radiation readings, the company says no changes were detected at monitoring posts around the 2 plants.

Tohoku Electric Power Company says it has found no problems with its Onagawa nuclear plant in Miyagi Prefecture and Higashidori plant in Aomori Prefecture. It says their reactors were not in operation at the time of the quake.
