May 21st, 2011, Okumamachi, Japan - A giant water-storage barge arrives at the quay of Fukushima NO. 1 nuclear power plant in Okumamachi, Fukushima Prefecture, some 200km northeast of Tokyo, on Saturday, May 21, 2011. The floating storage, 136 meters long and 46 meters wide, will store highly radioactive water from the basement of a troubled reactor building. Reactor 1 suffered a near complete core meltdown in the March disaster, allowing 3,000 tons of water to leak into its basement. The photo was released by Tokyo Electric Power Co., the operator of the Fukushima plant, on Saturday.  (Photo by TEPCO/AFLO) [0006] -mis-
