Meteorological agency revised the M7.3 to be M7.4, “It was something different from a simple outerrise earthquake”
On 12/7/2012, Fukushima diary reported the M7.3 was an outerrise earthquake. [Link]
However, Japan meteorological agency corrected themselves to state it wasn’t M7.3, it was M7.4 and it wasn’t a simple outerrise earthquake.
They did not address the specific type of the earthquake,but they explained like this below,
The destruction of the earth fault started on the east side of the ocean deep, but there’s a possibility that the main destruction started on the west side of the ocean deep.
Most of the aftershocks actually occurred on the west side of the ocean deep.
Ceci étant, la Japan Meteorological Agency s’est corrigée elle-même en affirmant que ce n’était pas un M7,3 mais un M7.4 et que ce n’était pas un séisme extrusif simple.
Ils n’ont pas donné le type spécifique du séisme mais ils l’expliquent ainsi :
La destruction de la faille a commencé à l’Est de la fosse océanique mais il est possible que la principale destruction ait commencé sur le côté ouest de la fosse océanique.
La plupart des répliques ont en fait eu lieu côté ouest de la fosse océanique.
This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
