Japan Bracing For Massive Volcano Eruption Near Nuclear Plant
Japan Bracing For Massive Volcano Eruption Near Nuclear Plant

AUGUST 16, 2015

When Japan decided it was going to begin the process of restarting many of their mothballed nuclear reactors last week, there was certainly cause for alarm. After all, it’s not unheard of for a nuclear reactor to run into problems shortly after being started. When Japan made this announcement, The World Nuclear Association noted that “Of 14 reactors that resumed operations after four years offline, all had emergency shutdowns and technical failures.” So it’s safe to say that when 25 Japanese plants applied for restart permits, the international community was a little worried.

Now it appears that some of those fears have been validated, though not in the way most people were expecting. The Sendai nuclear power plant was the first of those reactors to be restarted on Tuesday, an event which couldn’t have come at a worse time. A volcano near the plant appears ready to blow its top.

I find this article very odd. The volcano in question is Sukurajima.

As most GLPers know, this volcano has been erupting daily for some time. Not really sure what could have changed to cause concern now.
