Pre-Tsunami Damage At Unit 1 Fukushima Daiichi

Concerns about damage to unit 1 and possibly other units having happened before the tsunami hit the plant still exist among experts and those who witnessed the disaster.

Many worked cited seeing pipes buckle, break, leak or fall off of walls as they fled the unit during the earthquake. In an effort to document these events and investigate the possibility of earthquake induced damage playing a role in the disaster we have started a page to document those findings.

The permanent page can be found here or in the Fukushima Status menu on the home page.
