I really feel the need to keep Fukushima in the spot light. I feel people need to understand Fukushima is still a major problem.
Today Fukushima Diary
has information about the quakes that are happening there. Many have posted they are not normal quakes but the feel more like explosions/bombs going off underground.
Fukushima citizens tweet that recent series of the earthquake feel different from usual ones.There have been more quakes there - today the 9th there have been two and others yesterday - you can view them on this site.
I think everyone has noticed it if they live in Fukushima since 311, and paid attention to earthquakes. Suddenly, the way of shaking has changed, isn’t it ? feels like something is exploding underground, like a bomb.
I feel that too. It feels as if I was sleeping in the double bunk beds and someone knocked me up from the lower bunk. It comes up from the underground all of a sudden ,like bang. I woke up several times to be surprised at the knocking up shock. My heart beats heard, can’t be reassured for around the clock.
I live in Ibaraki, but my family, and people around me feel the same way too. It’s not a normal earthquake, but a short quake as if something was exploding underground. I haven’t felt that quake for 40 years. It happens everyday.
The only reason to deny the possibility of hydrovolcanic explosion underground is because the radiation level is not spiking up after the earthquake, but I doubt if the steam comes right above the epicenter.

Here is my post about Fukushima and Reactor 4 boiling without water in it on 1/1/12.
UPDATE 1/9/12 7:23 PM est - Fall out radiation is increasing in the Fukushima area again, as of the 6th of January. Concrete is falling apart under reactor 4 containment vessel.
Fall-out of Ce134 and 137 spiked up after the new year’s day in Fukushima.
Having the peak on 1/2/2012 and it was in the decreasing trend.
However, it’s starting to increase since 1/6/2012 again.
