The Greatest Disaster of Japan from March 11
[Modified on January 2, 2012]
Today Saturday, one day after Friday having suffered big earthquakes and tsunami, the northeast regions of Honsyu Island, Japan, or the northeast area of Tokyo is still under aftershocks and grave impact of the disaster never heard of in the Japanese history.
Now the number of people who stay in refuges is about 200,000. Thousands of houses and cars were washed away or destroyed by great earthquakes and tsunami that have occurred since 2:40 p.m. yesterday over hundreds kilometers north east of Tokyo.
PART 14: The Building Burst Has No Damage on Reactor
Japan's Government said that the blowup of the building of Fukushima No.1 Power Plant (which occurred at 3:36 p.m.) did not harm the reactor containment. At 8:40 p.m.
The burst of the building did not significantly increase the radioactive level outside the nuclear plant, Fukushima Pref, Japan.
Hydrogen explosion blew up the housing building of the reactor vessel in Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant without damaging the nuclear vessel at 3:36 p.m. today.
PART XIII: Nuclear Power Plant Evacuation of 20-km Range Residents
Around 7 p.m. of Saturday, Japan, the Government ordered evacuation of residents living within a 20-km range from the Fukushima No.1 Nuclear Plant, though it had applied to those living within a 10-kilometer range before.
The governmental nuclear agency responsible said that it was still investigating the situation, though a radioactive level could not be so disastrous at large, referring to the blowup of the building of the Fukushima No.1 Nuclear Plant.
PART XII: A Building Blown Off at Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant
One building of the Fukushima nuclear power plants exploded some time ago or around 3:40 p.m., Japan Time.
The location of the Fukushima nuclear power plants:
PART XI: Map of Epicenters on March 11 Earthquakes
(Note: The M8.8 earthquake in the above map is actually M9.0. It was officially corrected a day or so later. As its magnitude was so large, the Japan Meteorological Agency could not judge the scale immediately after the occurrence of the M9.0 earthquake. )
PART X: Reactor Containment Showing Pressure Drop
The containment vessel of a Fukushima nuclear power plant has started to show a pressure drop, avoiding a dangerous situation while cooling the fuel.
However, air inside the vessel is let out to the environment; a minor radioactive contamination is expected, though not at a level harmful to the human body, according to parties involved around 4:10 p.m.
PART IX: Nuclear Power Plant Fuel Leaked
A very minor amount of nuclear fuel used in one of Fukushima nuclear power plants, 300 km northeast of Tokyo, has reportedly leaked from the pressure container.
Cooling the fuels is not smoothly conducted due to facilities power source problems.
The Government assures that it is not a disaster but a minor event to be well contained.
Now around 3:40 p.m. of Saturday, Japan Time.
PART VIII: Power Outage in Hard Hit Area
In Miyagi Prefecture, with the population of 2.3 million, 170,000 citizens are evacuated into 670 refuges as of now around 11:50 a.m. of Saturday, Japan.
PART VII: Tokyo Electric Power Co., Inc.
Now, around 11:30 a.m. of Saturday in Japan, Tokyo Electric Power Company fails in supplying electric power for 1.5 million households situated around Tokyo and in the Kanto region, stretching about 200 km to 300 km from Tokyo.
PART VI: Earthquake Aftershocks Continue
Minor aftershocks have continued 20 hours after the initial great earthquakes around Tokyo.

PART III: 500-Km Pacific Coast Areas Hit Hard in Japan
Some towns on the Pacific Ocean of northern Honsyu Island, Japan, have been almost wholly wiped away by tsunami yesterday.
PART II: Nuclear Plant at Alert
Radioactive rays beyond the normal level are detected around a nuclear plant 300 km northeast of Tokyo, though the authority says that they are not at a harming level against human bodies.
PART I: Power Outage
Hundreds of thousands of commuters forced to stray in Tokyo office districts overnight have started to return home as railway systems have gradually recovered.
Hundred of thousands of households within 100 km of Tokyo are suffering power outage.
In areas north of the Tokyo area on Honsyu Island, millions of households lack electricity, gas, or telephone services.
