Current Event Cat - Fukushima

Current Event Cat of the Day:

Japan smells a nuclear rat: A rodent may have caused this week’s power outage at Japan’s tsunami-hit Fukushima nuclear power plant. The company suspects the rat caused a short-circuit in a switchboard, triggering the power cut. A 15-centimetre rat was found dead near a switchboard.

Cooling systems at the plant went out on Monday but by Wednesday the power had been restored and officials are currently investigating the incident. Perhaps this all could have been avoided if the Fukushima power plant had an office cat. Meow.
