Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Workers are still struggling to resolve the problems at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant where the disposal of radioactive water is hindering cooling efforts.

The chairman of Tokyo Electric Power Company, Tsunehisa Katsumata told reporters on Wednesday that it is uncertain when cooling functions can be restored to stabilize the situation at the plant.

He also said he doesn't think residents who have had to evacuate their homes near the plant will be able to return for several weeks.

Radioactive iodine and cesium have been found in
water coming from a tunnel outside the turbine building of the No.1 reactor and in the basement of the turbine buildings of reactors No.1 to 4.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
