Shizuoka Prefecture / Tokai Region

At 10:31 PM Tokyo time another earthquake, a 6.0 quake, hit Shizuoka Prefecture. This is about a half an hour ago.

One nuclear station we know of is located in Shizuoka Prefecture, and this has three operating nuclear plants on the site:

Hamaoka Nuclear Power Station

Hamaoka 3
Hamaoka 4
Hamaoka 5

All are BWR plants, owned by Chubu Electric Power Company. These plants went online between 1987 and 2004 and are very recent.

No. 1 and No. 2 at this site are permanently shut down.

NHK is reporting NO emergency shutdown has occurred at this plant site.
