Fukushima Dai-ichi (dai-ichi means "first"), was a multi-reactor
nuclear power site in the Fukushima Prefecture of Japan. The
Fukushima I nuclear accidents occurred after a 9.0 magnitude T hoku
earthquake and subsequent tsunami on 11 March 2011, only 14 days
before the reactor was to be shut down. This offshore earthquake,
near the island of Honshu, produced a large tsunami in Japan, and a
tsunami warning for over 20 countries within and around the Pacific
Rim. The earthquake triggered a scram shut down of the three active
reactors at the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant (Fukushima
Dai-Ichi). The ensuing tsunami inundated the site, stopped the
Fukushima I backup diesel generators, and caused a station
blackout. The subsequent lack of cooling led to explosions and
meltdowns at the Fukushima I facility, with problems at three of
the six reactors and in one of the six spent fuel pools. Times
