Violent release of materials at Fukushima Daiichi

Several officials and experts both from Japan and abroad have warned that TEPCO has not been completely up front with the conditions at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant and this footage may not help to quench those concerns.

On January 7th, around 10:15 in the morning, an enormous billowing cloud of black smoke erupted from the grounds of the nuclear power complex and headed south down the coastline.

This release was captured not only on the camera set up by the Japanese news broadcasting station TBS/JNN, but also glimpsed on TEPCO’s own video footage.

TEPCO has not made a statement at this time related to the release.
