Alert: 'shallow earthquake' repeated 10 times today at Fukushima Dai Ichi site might be nuclear problem: reactor no. 4 on fire

Some hours ago Fukushima Diary reported a strange 'shallow earthquake' at Fukushima Dai Ichi site. The quake (5+ category) was not just extremely shallow but also has very abrupt decrease of strength around the site, making it immediate suspect for a strong explosion (atomic or otherwise). A loud noise was also heard, which is uncommon in earthquakes.

The earthquake is also mentioned by Washington Post.

Later he has reported that there have been 10 successive such 'earthquakes' between 19:95 and 22:41 JST (GMT+9, no DST).

Since 20:00 reactor no. 4 caught fire, as is documented by both Fukushima Diary and EneNews (this one with video).
