That's got to be the most ignorant thing I've read on the internet this year. Seriously.

Yet, INDEPENDENT scientists, not on any TPTB payroll, all say that it happened. There are MILLIONS of videos all over the web showing devastation like crazy, and yet we pick on this topic to start a fight?

The only explanation is pumping water from R1-R4 / UC up to R5/R6, and out that canal.

On 9/27/2011, a Fukushima citizen, Mr.Toshiyuki stated that he saw yellow flash before the blast.
It is said in an interview.
He is a man from Iwaki shi, where is about 50km away from Fukushima plant, has a daughter,a son,wife and parents. He is self-employed and is involved in a medical industry.
He has been in Iwaki shi since 311.
When reactor 3 exploded on 3/14, he was at the 50 km point.
He says he was more surprised at the yellow light/flash than the explosion itself.
We at Fukushima Diary are looking for potential explanations for what the yellow light / flash was.
- You could always put forward some "more speculative" suggestions for the reason for that yellow flash, however it may be a little dangerous for people in Japan to be discussing or suggesting a National Security Issue. Whereas we can, because we are outside and the Japanese authorities cannot get their hands on us(easily).
I tell Fuku diary about the UC and underground blast. Probably not

Strontium has been released in the sea.
And more will be released. We even have a sqiggly line chart that looks like Moshpit's roadsign!
And more sea dumping planed for January.
Fukushima Daiichi Unit 1 was stuck in darkness, and everyone on site feared that the reactor core was damaged. It was the day after a huge earthquake and a towering tsunami devastated the plant, and the workers for Tokyo Electric Power Company knew they were the only hope for halting an unfolding nuclear disaster.
WASHINGTON, D.C., Nov. 11, 2011—The Institute of Nuclear Power Operations has compiled a detailed timeline of events at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The detailed report, prepared as part of the integrated response to the Japan events, was delivered today to U.S. industry executives, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and members of Congress.
“The U.S. nuclear energy industry is committed to learning from Japan’s experience and applying relevant lessons to make U.S. nuclear energy facilities even safer. We are sharing this report with the widest possible audience because it is important that we all work from the same set of facts in determining the appropriate response,” said NEI’s senior vice president and chief nuclear officer, Tony Pietrangelo. “It is of paramount importance that we learn from it and take our facilities to even higher levels of safety and preparedness.”

Reporters have been allowed inside the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan for the first time since it was crippled by an earthquake and tsunami in March. The journalists toured the plant wearing full protective clothing. A reporter from the Associated Press described seeing "twisted and overturned trucks, crumbling reactor buildings and piles of rubble virtually untouched since the wave struck".
The 2011 earthquake off the Pacific coast of Tohoku, also known as the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake or the Great East Japan Earthquake, (Japanese: "Eastern Japan Great Earthquake Disaster" (東日本大震災 Higashi Nihon Daishinsai?)[fn 1]) was a magnitude 9.0 (Mw) undersea megathrust earthquake off the coast of Japan that occurred at 14:46 JST (05:46 UTC) on Friday, 11 March 2011, with the epicenter approximately 70 kilometres (43 mi) east of the Oshika Peninsula of Tōhoku and the hypocenter at an underwater depth of approximately 32 km (20 mi). It was the most powerful known earthquake ever to have hit Japan, and one of the five most powerful earthquakes in the world overall since modern record-keeping began in 1900.
The earthquake triggered powerful tsunami waves, which reached heights of up to 40.5 metres (133 ft) in Miyako in Tōhoku's Iwate Prefecture, and which in the Sendai area travelled up to 10 km (6 mi) inland. In addition to loss of life and destruction of infrastructure, the tsunami caused a number of nuclear accidents, primarily the ongoing level 7 meltdowns at three reactors in the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant complex, and the associated evacuation zones affecting hundreds of thousands of residents.
