TEPCO president apologizes from Fukushima

Masataka Shimizu, the president of Tokyo Electric Power Co., visited Fukushima Gov. Yuhei Sato on Friday to apologize for the ongoing crisis at the firm’s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, but the governor expressed dissatisfaction with the company’s handling of the situation. "We have caused very serious trouble," Shimizu told the governor at the meeting in the prefectural government office building. This was the first time the TEPCO president had met with the governor since the nuclear crisis began. Sato openly showed emotion when he talked about children who have been forced to evacuate due to the nuclear accident. Sato said about 6,000 children had moved to other prefectures.
