; Fukushima Daiichi Tsunami Damage Report

TEPCO has released some initial reporting on damage at Fukushima Daiichi.

The seafront water intake equipment for units 5 & 6 remained functional as did some equipment related to the sub-drain sump pump system around units 1-4. Visual inspection of silt fences on the port openings indicated they were intact. Certain silt fences are now scheduled to be pulled up and inspected further. TEPCO noted that the MegaFloat that is still housed in the port was undamaged. This was relocated and tethered in a more sheltered portion of the port a few years ago when it was identified as a risk in the event of a tsunami. TEPCO did not mention the condition of a construction rig in the port conducting initial work for the contaminated water discharge pipe.

TEPCO typically releases information from an initial visual walk down after a major event. Subsequent reports may identify more damage as they look further.
