Easy for me to remember that because today is my brother's birthday.  And the tsunami in Sri Lanka was the day before we moved into our current home.

Yes.

I actually worked on the GE reactor Containment design and testing. Fukusima employed first generation reactor containment Mark I. Mine was Mark III. 

Today GE Nuclear Energy Division is a shopping center named "The Plant".

The reactor business died and I am still around.

Yes, I was surprised to see an ad in our paper today from the Japanese thanking Americans for the donations and support after this disaster. The ad also invited Americans to come visit and see the rebuilding that was done.
