No problem. It was just a whole bunch of Mil-terms strung together that seemed like, although it's probably true and correct - sounds like it just
had to come from a movie.
But, enough off-top-ish.

oh you two quit your flirting.
That roof and #3 have been bothering me , can you point me to that 'holes in the roof before' pic?
It looks like a blast blew debris from the inside inland side of the #3 building toward the sea from behind the reactor ( the reactor core seems to
have left a 'shadow' on the turbine roof ) .
It appears that material shot out of the lower "windows" at just about the roof height of the turbine building ( taking off the roof edge closest to
the reactor and spraying debris after it , but not getting all the way across), and out of the upper "windows" in such a way as to hit the turbine
roof missing the reactor side edge but blowing off the seaside edge and leaving debris.
Since the lower 'window' debris and upper window debris seem to have been ejected not directly over each other (the lower windows stuff is (from the
land side looking seaward) left of the upper whatever ejected that stuff past the core must have been tilted enough to have achieved that result .
Also the utility building directly inland from #3 shows evidence of something striking it on the roof from high enough up that it missed the reactor
roof edge but clipped of the inland roof edge and left a debris field pointing inland on the far side .
The three booms in the video may not be bull, for that 'debris shadow' on the turbine roof the culprit must have been the rods and materials in the
waste pool ( if the waste was on the inland side , otherwise ??) and either they were pushed from below or the tank had slumped off of plumb.
The expert here
believes that the torus would have been filling hydrogen , so we would have had
hydrogen in the primary core, hydrogen in the steam tube, hydrogen in the torus and probably hydrogen in the secondary containment.
Also the waste rods were thought to be nearly dry so we would have had hydrogen in the upper two floors of the #3 building ( At TMI the 'partial melt
down' of the rods happened in less than 2-1/2 hours without cooling, so you can imagine what 8,10,12, etc managed here )
SO , scenario 1 torus blows, boom, ( possibly from someone trying to restart the primary core re-circ pumps ) it pushes the waste tank over a bit and
then ignites the hydrogen in the upper part of the building , boom 2, either primary or secondary explodes it's hydrogen ( may not have have blown cap
i don't think the visual evidence supports this so
scenario two Torus blows (boom) tilts pool a bit as the water cushions some of the blow then powders waste poll , secondary core pops (boom2) primary
core pops (boom3),
that thing in the water could be core /pool material or it could be a boat , but since I do not see where some of that ejected land between the core
and the sea I vote for core ejecta...
