Before and After Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant pictures

Fukushima Daiichi power plant, before the 9.0 earthquake and Tsunami.

" On March 14, 2011 between 11:00 and 11:04 AM local time (02:00 and 02:04 GMT), DigitalGlobe’s constellation imaged

the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant twice--approximately 1 minute before (see page 5) and approximately 3

minutes after (see slides 6,7 & 8) an explosion at the No. 3 reactor building. This is the second major explosion seen at the

facility, following the explosion at the No. 1 reactor building on March 12, 2011 (see page 4).

Substantial damage could be seen to the reactor building, including the upper structure being largely destroyed with the

building’s roof and side panels blown off. In addition, an extensive smoke and dust plume could be seen drifting east

approximately 2 kilometers from the damaged reactor building."
