TOKYO, Japan — It is shortly after 11 a.m. on March 14, 2011. A voice from the Tokyo headquarters of Tepco warns employees at the Fukushima nuclear power plant that a tsunami advisory has been issued following an earthquake — just three days after the magnitude-9.0 quake that had triggered the worst nuclear power crisis in Japan's history. After a short silence, Fukushima Daiichi's emergency command center is seen shaking violently. The next voice belongs to the plant's manager: "Headquarters. Headquarters," he shouts. "This is serious. This is serious. I think we've had another hydrogen blast. It seems like there's just been an explosion."
