SimplyInfo.org researcher Elaine Kirk found this image that was posted on the TEPCO website on June 14th of Unit #1 at Fukushima Daiichi. It shows a very large and deep fissure that runs right up to the reactor building. It is unclear what date the image was actually taken on. The odd quality of the image is due to it being some sort of laser survey of the power plant.
Close up of the fissure
This more recent image shows the same area considerably filled in with dirt.
There are concerns that this large fissure could have also had some impact on the integrity of the lower levels in unit 1.
