Fukushima Daiichi, Other Industrial Sites Safe After Typhoon Roke, an Industrial Info News Alert

KOFU-SHI, JAPAN--(Marketwire - Sep 22, 2011) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources East Asia (Kofu-shi, Japan) -- On Wednesday, September 21, Typhoon Roke made landfall in central Japan before moving through the country on a north-northeastern path. The weather system caused extensive flooding in Nagoya and other central areas of Japan, and forced several refiners to shut down berthing operations at 17 refineries.

Operations at automotive plants and heavy industry sites were also suspended. So far, most of these have returned to normal operations. Another major concern was Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station. Tokyo Electric Power Company Incorporated (TYO:9501) (TEPCO) (Tokyo), along with government agencies, has been working to overcome the irradiated water issue, though Typhoon Roke did not appear to greatly exacerbate the situation.
