CORRECTION: Reported Hydrogen Explosion in Fukushima Daiichii Nuclear Power Plant
CORRECTION: for a short period of time, this article erroneously carried the word ‘nuclear’ in the headline, when the copy within the article clearly said ‘hydrogen.’ This has been corrected immediately. Full apology from me for this error. Here follows the rest of the original article.
“… officials say they believe a hydrogen explosion occurred at the nuclear plant early Monday morning ,” AP
(It is still Sunday for two more hours here in the USA)

As an veteran post trauma specialist, I like to see double and triple eyewitness verifications from ‘the fog’ of disaster sites, and those verifications made by persons with true expertise, in this case, tech science and nuclear engineering and more. I am not that kind of trained scientist.
You can also see two posts from Kathy Gill’s point of view with her info gleaned from those not on site at Japan, but in the know about the science re nuclear energy. This one is on “Getting Past the Headlines.” (yes, the irony–sad look) and the other one is a take on how “Nuclear Power, Meltdowns and Why Japan is Not Chernobyl.”
pictures below are before earthquake and one day later at the nuclear plant and facility.
