Collection of resources for the Fukushima power plant

We’ve shown you a wide variety of resources related to the disaster in Japan, including the recent feature from Hidenori Watanave and his great collection of photo overlays.

Today’s feature is focused squarely on the Fukushima power plant, and it’s a single network link from Valery Hronusov. However, the file is packed with information about the plant — photo overlays, 3D buildings, photos, videos and more. It’s essentially everything you’d want to know about the plant in one nice little package.


To view it all yourself, check out the info on Valery’s site, or you can download the KMZ file directly here.

With Helicopter over the Japanese Nuclear Plant – scary apocalyptic scene

Helicopter video of Japan’s troubled Fukushima Nuclear plant from yesterday indicates how extensive the damage at the plant is from the earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent explosions.

According to reports, the video was shot about 32 hours ago by a Tokyo Electric Company employee in a Japanese Self-Defense Helicopter surveying the plant. The editors of the video highlight the Fukushima 4 nuclear reactor, which holds the spend fuel rods and looks absolutely destroyed.

It’s a rare up-close view of the plant we’re now only seeing from a long-range for safety reasons and it’s an extremely disheartening one.
