In this Dec. 14, 2012 photo, members of a Japanese scientist team check a fault, marked with white dots, underneath the Higashidori nuclear plant in Higashidori in Aomori prefecture, northern Japan. The four-member panel commissioned by the Nuclear Regulation Authority said Thursday, Dec. 20, 2012 that at least two major faults underneath the nuclear plant are believed to be active - a contradiction of operator Tohoku Electric Power Co’s assertion that they are inactive. The panel said the faults could cause magnitude 7-class earthquakes near the reactor, which was opened in 2005 and is among the newest of Japan’s aging reactors.
