Jellyfish attacks Nuclear plant !

Japanese nuclear plant had to reduce the output because
of jellyfish! This slimy creature, jellyfish, blocked the plant’s
seawater cooling system. It was for the first time the plant
had to slow down the production due to jellyfish, says the

The water intake at Chubu Electric’s Hamaoka power plant
stopped automatically when the slimy creatures blocked
the filtering devices, said the officials.

When there was no enough of water coming to the cooling
system the power station had to lower the output of two
reactors at the plant to 60-70 % of the capacity. By
evening they could remove the jellyfishes and the power
plant returned to the normal capacity.
