From USA Today
The operator of the Japanese nuclear plant devastated by last year’s tsunami issued a final report on the disaster Wednesday, outlining organizational and communication problems that have not yet been resolved.
The report by Tokyo Electric Power Co. comes as Japan prepares to restart its first nuclear reactors since the March 11, 2011, disaster led to a prolonged shutdown of all of the country’s atomic generating plants. While many Japanese remain deeply concerned about the safety of nuclear power, the restart raises operators” hopes that more reactors can resume operations.
