Prefecture calls for permanent closure of all ten Fukushima reactors

The Oman Daily Observer just reported:

The Japanese prefecture of Fukushima wants a nuclear-free future, according to a reconstruction plan adopted yesterday, after suffering the world’s worst nuclear disaster in 25 years.

Under the plan, the provincial government panel called on the federal government and Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) to shut down all 10 nuclear reactors in the prefecture. Six of them are at the heavily damaged Fukushima Daiichi plant, and four are at the Fukushima Daini power station.

Provincial Governor Yuhei Sato said the regional reconstruction plan was aimed at attracting back inhabitants, especially younger people, who fled Fukushima after the nuclear disaster.
