Over 10% of World N-Plants at Risk

Scores of nuclear power plants worldwide are at risk from either tsunamis or earthquakes similar to the natural disasters that crippled Japan's Fukushima reactors, a new research shows.

Experts have warned that many at-risk plants are in countries less able to cope with a disaster than Japan, reported The Independent.

Seventy-six operating power stations in Japan, Taiwan, China, South Korea, India, Pakistan and the US are located in areas close to coastlines deemed vulnerable to tsunamis.
