Announcement about the tsunami, which caused devastating damage to Fukushima nuclear power plant, should have been made much earlier.

TEPCO refused to say anything about the meltdown for two months.
Nowadays, the power company makes the public demonstration, noticing that it should have acknowledged the meltdown within a few days of the tsunami.

In spite of it, many meteorologists said the meltdown started within one hour after the reactor had been hit by the tsunami.

The reactor meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear plant began with the loss of electric power after it had been struck by the disaster on March 2011.

It was the biggest nuclear catastrophe since the Chernobyl disaster in 1986, which leftthe Japanese people awfully shocked.

Fukushima district had more than 160,000 residents, most of which will never be able to return to their own homes.
