In this photo released by Tokyo Electric Power Co., the carcass of a small animal lies inside a temporary electric switchboard at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant in Okuma town, Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan Wednesday, March 20, 2013. Masayuki Ono, spokesman for Tokyo Electric Power Co., the utility that runs the nuclear plant, said a 15-centimeter (6-inch) rat was found dead Wednesday near the switchboard. He said the rat may be linked to this week’s power failure, but that more investigation is needed to be sure. (AP Photo/Tokyo Electric Power Co.) EDITORIAL USE ONLY

The blackout was caused by a mouse in the panel board, the board has been left on the truck since 3/18/2011
According to Tepco, the power blackout of Fukushima plant was caused by a mouse that came in the terminals to have caused a short circuit.
The panel board was provisionally installed on the bed of a truck on 3/18/2011. Knowing the risk, Tepco has been leaving it there.
The panel board was for reactor 3 and 4. There are 6 more provisional panel boards for these reactors.
The terminal and the wall were burnt and the mouse was dead underneath.

Message to TEPCO!
About humane mouse traps
“Mouse causes meltdown!” .. future headline? might be “Rat causes radiation”?
