About 22:00 9/21/2011,Typhoon 15th passed Fukushima.

Since around 9PM,Fukushima live streaming camera “Fukuichi camera” stopped showing anything for unknown reason.

Around the same time,major part of Fukushima prefecture went out of power.

No detailed news was announced.

Also,water standard indicators for spent fuel pool of reactor 1,2,and the gauge of pump for vessels of reactor 1,2,3 went black out.No data is sent to the control room.

At 21:32 9/21/2011,Tepco admitted that 200 tons ~ 500 tons of ground water flow into the basement floor “on the daily bases”. Their intention of announcement “at this timing” is not known yet.


From 9PM to 12PM,Fukuichi camera went on and off,but it completely went blackout since then.

Now still we can not see anything on the screen.


JNN live streams the video but we can not figure out anything from the angle.


Now typhoon is east of Hokkaido,but still news from Fukushima power is shut down.

At 11PM of 9/21,Fukuichi camera showed a crane was leaning over the reactor 3.

Additionally,reactor 4 was severely damaged even before the typhoon.

We all want to know what is going on in the plant area.
