    I would love to see a source.

      It's a minor point, as we know that Fukushima is smack in the middle of an active earthquake zone, and in that area, one more active since last March's big quake. And we know that the floor of #4 is supported solely by steel tresses vulnerable to a large quake. So the main point of a major disaster in waiting remains.

      There's this

      Dapeng Zhao, geophysics professor at Japan's Tohoku University, said: 'There are a few active faults in the nuclear power plant area, and our results show the existence of similar structural anomalies under both the Iwaki and the Fukushima Daiichi areas.

      'Given that a large earthquake occurred in Iwaki not long ago, we think it is possible for a similarly strong earthquake to happen in Fukushima.'

      ...While the scientists can't predict when an earthquake in Fukushima Daiichi will occur, they state that the ascending fluids observed in the area indicate that such an event is likely to occur in the near future.

      Today, if you exist... that's already suspicious.
