Rat may have caused this week's Fukushima outage

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
