Narrator: Early in the morning of March 14th, pressure inside the Unit 3 reactor building also reached the limit. Despite the recovery efforts of plant personnel, the worst case scenario was unfolding. [...]
By this time, Units 1 and 3 were being cooled intermittently with seawater. Takashi was ordered to prepare for recovery work.
That’s when it happened.
Takashi: The second explosion was much louder than the one at Unit 1.
Panels fell in the walkway connecting to the administration building. I mean the ceiling panels, they fell down. So I got out of the way. I didn’t run away but I got off to one side. I could see that all the glass was blown out of the administration building.
