TOKYO - Japan's Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) is preparing to put sea water into the No.2 reactor at its Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, Jiji news agency quoted the electric company as saying on Sunday.

Cooling functions at the plant, in northern Japan, were damaged after a massive earthquake and tsunami on Friday.

TEPCO, Japan's largest electric utility, is already injecting sea water into the No.1 and No.3 units at the plant to cool them down and reduce pressure inside reactor container vessels.
