0243: Japanese government spokesman Yukio Edano has just spoken on TV. Says that water injection at Reactor 3 seems to be continuing, and the containment vessel is still safe.

Look for everyone's stake in Japan and the world I am praying it does. And I am not a person that prays much.

I don't understand. If its a hydrogen explosion where are the flames? Isn't hydrogen one of the most reactive substances out there? All I am seeing is a plume of white smoke.

I think is a pressure explosion, not a combustion explosion

In the zoomed out view of he explosion, you can clearl see a visible blast. While the flames are hard to see, the results are not. In the view that is zoomed in moderately, you can see large bits if debris raining back down through the smoke/steam cloud

Stay safe

There was a cutaway drawing of a building containing a containment vessel which looked similar to the ones involved in the explosions. It looks like to lower part of the building is reinforced concrete and the top part is just a steel framework with panel outer walls. The post explosion close up of the first building which went up seems to jibe with this drawing. It looks like the flimsier walls of the top part blew off and allowed the energy for the blast to go up and out. It's believable, if the drawing accurately depicts the ones involved in the explosions, that the top part of the building could be destroyed while the containment vessel could survive.

I didn't see flames in the first explosion, but I do in the second one.

they just said on fox that the explosion triggerd the seizmos to register and that the explosion created the tsunami alert unknown at this time if any radiation was released.

From the pictures they have showed on NHK World and CNN of the aftermath of the #3 explosion it appears that much more than just the top of the building was blown apart. Looks much worse than the #1 reactor building.

every now and then on skynews.com they show the other angle view and its a huge fireball at the base

also you can see debris fall down from 200' up as soon as the plume rises



sorry -i see already reported as i said...
this thread moves much too fast to keep up with

PEACE
