'“If a quake really caused the (equipment’s) failure, it’s a problem that would affect Japan’s entire nuclear safety, including a resumption of reactors,” Tsujimoto said.'

This is really quite frightening because it suggests that the industry has still not factored in the POSSIBILITY that it may have been the earthquake, rather than the tsunami, that knocked out the Dai-ichi's backup systems. In other words, they're still purposely ignoring certain what-if scenarios, just as they did prior to the 2011 accident.

That being the case, another accident is only a matter of time.
