福島に震災後からずっと住んでいて直感が鋭い人なら気づいてると思うんだ、急に地震の揺れ方とかが変わったよね?地下で何かが爆発してるみたいなドカンてくる地震に変わった事。

<Translation>

I think everyone has noticed it if they live in Fukushima since 311, and paid attention to earthquakes. Suddenly, the way of shaking has changed, isn’t it ? feels like something is exploding underground, like a bomb.

分かります。まるで二段ベッドの上の段で寝ていたら、下の段から蹴りあげられたように、いきなり強烈にドカンと下から突き上げられるような揺れ。寝ていても何度も下から突き上げる揺れに飛び起きました。心臓がバクバクして24時間気が休まらない。

<Translation>

I feel that too. It feels as if I was sleeping in the double bunk beds and someone knocked me up from the lower bunk. It comes up from the underground all of a sudden ,like bang. I woke up several times to be surprised at the knocking up shock. My heart beats heard, can’t be reassured for around the clock.

私は隣のI県ですが同感です。家族も周囲の人も一様に感じています。普通の地震ではなく、何かが爆発しているような短時間の揺れ。40年間感じたことのない揺れをほぼ毎日体感しています。

<Translation>

I live in Ibaraki, but my family, and people around me feel the same way too. It’s not a normal earthquake, but a short quake as if something was exploding underground. I haven’t felt that quake for 40 years. It happens everyday.

<End>

The only reason to deny the possibility of hydrovolcanic explosion underground is because the radiation level is not spiking up after the earthquake, but I doubt if the steam comes right above the epicenter.
