TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan will continue dropping water from the air on the No.3 reactor of its quake-stricken nuclear power plant on Friday, the country's nuclear safety agency said on Thursday night.

In a separate statement, the Fukushima Daiichi plant's owner, Tokyo Electric Power Co, said white smoke or steam had been seen coming from the No.2 reactor.
