Japan nuclear crisis: TEPCO says power line now connected to Fukushima Daiichi plant

Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO), the operator of the Fukushima nuclear power plant at the center of a nuclear crisis since last week's earthquake and tsunami, just announced it has connected an external transmission line with the Daiichi plant; now, electricity can be supplied. TEPCO says it plans to supply Unit 2 first, followed by Unit 1, Unit 3 and Unit 4 ... because Unit 2 is expected to be less damaged. (Reuters)
