Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) is assessing a government report about the threat of another tsunami headed towards its wrecked Fukushima nuclear station.

Tepco is in the process of cleaning up its Fukushima Daiichi
plant since it was hit by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011. Now, there is a
chance that the plant could be it again by another tsunami.

A seawall of 36 feet was planned by Tepco engineers and it
would be completely devastated if tsunami waves taller than 66 feet hit. Back
in 2011, the magnitude of the earthquake was 9. If an earthquake with a higher
magnitude were to hit, it would be catastrophic.

“Tepco will examine the latest projections and analyse the impact on the ongoing preventive measures against tsunamis that the company has been taking.” – spokesman for Tepco.
