A nuclear disaster drill was held Sunday near Japan Atomic Power Co.’s Tsuruga power plant in Fukui Prefecture to simulate public responses to reactor damage caused by an earthquake-triggered blackout.

The drill was based on a scenario in which the plant suffers a serious accident that robs it of external power following an 6:20 a.m. earthquake rated at level 6 on the Japanese seismic intensity scale to 7.
