Yas Idei, writing from Japan for Forbes, reported soon after the latest earthquake to rattle the country that the Onagawa nuclear power plant in the Oshika District and Ishinomaki city, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, lost its power.

The March 11 Japanese earthquake and subsequent tsunami knocked out electricity and emergency generators required to cool reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi plant. The lack of cooling led to a partial nuclear meltdown in units 1, 2 and 3 at the crippled plant and the release of deadly radioactivity.

Tohoku Electric, responsible for operations at the Onagawa plant, reported it had restarted the system to cool its spent fuel pool, according to Reuters.

Following the March 11 earthquake, the Onagawa plant experienced a fire in the turbine section of the plant and increased levels of radioactivity were measured.

The Japanese government and TEPCO, Tokyo Electric Power, have consistently misled and lied to the public about the disaster. TEPCO has repeatedly falsified safety data and temperature readings for coolant materials for at least two decades.

In 2009, top company officials resigned after it was disclosed that the company covered up at least 29 cracks and other damage to the reactors now in either full or partial meltdown. In 1999, two workers at TEPCO’s nuclear processing plant died from radiation poisoning.
