Tokyo Elec workers at Fukushima complex to evacuate

TOKYO (Reuters) - Tokyo Electric Power Co said workers and engineers at the Fukushima Daiichi and Daini nuclear plants had been ordered to evacuate after a quake hit northeastern Japan on Tuesday.

The company is checking the status of the two plants and details are not yet clear, a Tokyo Electric spokesman said.

Hundreds of workers and engineers are at the nuclear complex to restore functions damaged by the devastating March 11 quake and tsunami.

Japan Atomic Power Co. said there were no irregularities at its Tokai Daini nuclear plant after the quake.

Tohoku Electric Power Co. also said there were no irregularities at its Onagawa nuclear complex in northeast Japan.
