Yesterday's Event at Fukushima Daiichi

I'm listening to "I'm Already Dead" by Monsters and Men. Fitting music I think.

Something happened yesterday that was visible primarily on the Futaba cam.  I've created a pdf of screen shots made by me, Wideawake and others participating in the Enenews Web Cam Discussion Forum.

The event may have started with some sort of flashes that were visible in video of the TEPCO 4 webcam (cam focused on unit 4). I was not able to screen capture the flashes seen in the video (posted by Heart of  the Rose) here:

Flashes were followed by what looks a lot like "smoke" visible on the Futaba cam. This shot was made by WideAwake. The black cloud you see on the horizon is an unlikely one and it may have been some sort of emission event:
Look how the "cloud" is illuminated (by the rising sun?)
