TEPCO president visits Fukushima

The president of Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, has again apologized to communities affected by the emergency at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

Masataka Shimizu visited officials in Hirono in Fukushima Prefecture on Wednesday.

The town has set up a disaster relief headquarters in neighboring Iwaki city. Shimizu apologized to Hirono Mayor Motohoshi Yamada.

Shimizu promised to bring the situation at Fukushima Daiichi under control as soon as possible so people can go home.

Shimizu also visited the mayor of Namie, north of the nuclear plant.

Mayor Tamotsu Baba told the TEPCO President he cannot understand why it has taken so long for him to visit and apologize.

One of evacuees said he wants to know exactly how high radiation levels are in Namie Town.

President Shimizu later told reporters he will try to provide local people with more radiation data.
