TEPCO's biggest nuke plant continue operations after quake
(Reuters) - Japan's Tokyo Electric Power Co said operations at its biggest Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear plant were continuing after a strong quake hit northern Japan on Saturday.
A strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.6 struck northwestern Japan on Saturday, about half a day after massive 8.9 magnitude quake hit northeastern Japan.
Four nuclear units at the plant continued to operate, while the three remaining units were kept shut, a company official at the plant said.
