Prime notizie dei danni a KEK

“The ILC-related facilities at KEK sustained considerable damages, especially at ATF (Accelerator Test Facility), which suffered severe damages,” said Seiya Yamaguchi, head of the Linear Collider Project Office at KEK. Many cracks on the building surfaces have been observed, and some window glasses were destroyed. Some of the cables and concrete shield blocks fell down. “The ATF linear accelerator suffered considerable damages. We will need a length of time to fully recover from the incident,” said Yamaguchi.

KEK reported that the operation of all accelerators and experimental devices operations were stopped immediately after the first shake, and confirmed employees were safe from radiation and that there was no hazard to the environment. There are no reports of casualties on either the Tsukuba or Tokai campuses. All users and collaborators who stayed at the Tsukuba and Tokai campuses were confirmed safe, and those who were at the Tokai campus have either moved to the dormitory at the Tsukuba campus or have returned to their homes.
