TEPCO, the beleaguered energy company that owns the Fukushima nuclear plant that experienced a meltdown following the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan on March 11th, has for the first time released photos of the plant the day it was hit by the tsunami. The photographs present a scene of great chaos and destruction: However, recent evidence suggests that the plant’s nuclear reactors may have been critically damaged by the earthquake which occurred hours before the tsunami hit.
