Photo taken from a Kyodo News helicopter on Feb. 20, 2020, shows Tohoku Electric Power Co.'s Onagawa nuclear power plant in Miyagi Prefecture, northeastern Japan. The Nuclear Regulation Authority officially approved at a meeting on Feb. 26 the restart of the plant's No. 2 reactor that was damaged by the 2011 earthquake-tsunami disaster, as it was deemed to meet the strict safety standards introduced after the catastrophe and added anti-disaster measures.
