Did the May 3, 2015 Earthquake in Japan Cause Fukushima's Melted Fuel to Fission?


This video suggests that the earthquake that shook north east Japan May 3 2015 was responsible fro the emissions soon visible at Daiichi after the shaking stopped:

I strongly recommend watching the video.

I was not watching the cams during the earthquake but noticed that the emissions seemed unusually thick when I started watching the cams about 10 hours later.  I also documented the very large boat in the harbor http://majiasblog.blogspot.com/2015/05/unceassing-emissions.html

I created a file of screenshots because the fog didn't look right the next day:

 


I've been having trouble getting TEPCO cams 1 and 4 to load today.



In this recent video, Prof. Koide states repeatedly that the melted fuel requires continuous cooling to avoid escalation of reactions:  Hiroaki Koide: "The Trouble with Nuclear Power"

  1. It is so obvious and sad. For those who wonder if such cam shots are merely "fog", I might point out that fog is caused by temperature differences, and wherever there is the heat of radiation, fog will form, especially at night when the air tries to cool.
