Breaking News: Explosion underground?



19:05 9/29/2011(JST) ,there was an earthquake near Fukushima plants.

Scale 5+


Now there are some aftershocks still.

Strange points

  • 1) Though it was a major earthquake,it was scale 5+ only around Fukushima nuc plants.
  • 2) According to Japan Meteorological Agency,the epicenter was “very shallow”.They can’t even specify how deep it was.

  • 3) Though Fukushima city is in the same prefecture,it was only scale 1 there.

  • 4) A lot of the people heard loud brontide,which is rare for normal earthquake.

Unconfirmed info (info from Twitter)

  • 1) The epicenter is right under Fukushima plants.
  • 2) From the live streaming video,sometimes you see flash from the buildings.

  • 3) From the live streaming video,steam is coming up from around reactor 4.


  • 1) Radiation level is increasing.
  • In Futabayama area, 21.48 uSv/h @9/21 → 24.65 uSv/h @9/29 19:01
  • 2) Unusual amount of helicopters and airplanes are flying around in Fukushima. (hovering near Ishimori,Kamiya,etc..)

From viewing all those reports, this earthquake seems to be something usual.

Considering the fact that melted fuel rods are sinking about 17m deep in the ground, it is possible to think the last earthquake was a hydrovolcanic explosion caused by nuclear fuel touching the underground water vein.

破局だよ RT あまり考えたくないけど、メルトアウトした燃料と地下水が接触して地下で再臨界だと考えるのが妥当かなと?ふくいち近辺で震度5強だけど隣県で震度4が存在しなかったんです。どう考えても不思議ですよね。

“It’s catastrophic. I don’t even want to imagine,but it might have been some kind of explosion of meltouted fuel rods touching underground vein.
It was scale 5+ just around the plants but no scale 4 class of earthquake detected in other prefectures.”

Tomorrow,Japanese government is lifting the mandatory evacuating area.

  1. This is downright frightening and It is hard to imagine that this is NOT the end of it either. For being one of God’s creations (so to speak) we are certainly not the smartest with the gifts we have received. I realize there is no hiding from this but I am glad I am NOT on the west coast of the United States right about now.

    I have checked the Tepco Fukuichi Webcam, no atomic geysir is showing up yet. But even if I think Tepco will hamper with the Webcam (putting the last ok images in a loop) or just switch it off.
    The coverup and lack of information is criminal. Even in Germany there a very few articles about the disaster, because nothing seems to be certain, not even the amount of radioactivity realeased. Nobody seems to be concerned about the alpha emitters that have been released in the ocean, I do not want any plutonium infested fish landing on my plate. Pure madness

    I’m an anti-nuclear activist from back in the day. This is why. It’s the worst thing that could happen with a nuclear reactor and there are three smashed reactors leaking deadly isotopes into the atmosphere.The worst part of it all is the lack of action by the Japanese government and TEPCO. They seem to think that if they ignore the problem it will go away. It won’t go away. It will only get worse,much worse and it will last for thousands of years.Given time the radiation will be spread all over the planet. The problem will not go away but many people will,from leukemia and cancer.Many children will be born with birth defects.Why? Why is there being so little done? Is it so expensive? Dose money mean more than human life? Is the entire world insane with greed? Will future generations damn us for leaving them a radioactive planet?

      Will we HAVE any future generations to damn us? On every front we are destroying the earth and each other, squandering millions on thoughtless behavior. Our hearts are too small for our brains. But nothing beats our greed.

    The Revelation verses about Wormwood keep coming to mind when thinking about the continuation and enlargement of the Fukushima catastrophe.

    This was not an explosion; the epicenter is 27 miles SW of Fukushima Daiichi:

  9. I have been browsing online greater than three hours today, yet I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It’s beautiful value sufficient for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the net will likely be much more useful than ever before.
