Tepco Says Fukushima Reactors Undamaged by 6.8 Magnitude Quake

July 12 (Bloomberg) -- Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power station, crippled by a tsunami in March 2011, was undamaged by a 6.8 magnitude earthquake that struck off the coast of the area today.

Inspections and monitoring showed “no abnormality” at the power facilities including reactors and workers were safe, the company said in an e-mailed statement. The earthquake triggered a tsunami of about 30 centimeters (1 foot), it said.

The quake struck at 4:22 a.m. local time and its epicenter was about 140 kilometers (87 miles) off the coast of Fukushima Prefecture at a depth of about 10 kilometers, Japan’s Meteorological Agency said on its website.
