Three years after: Atomic worker gives eyewitness account of the quake, tsunami and meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.

After the meltdowns, "...the Independent Investigation Commission on the Fukushima Nuclear Accident launched a national campaign to collect personal testimonials from those who experienced the accident at the plant and those who were forced to evacuate the area close to the plant.

"One such story was from a subcontractor of the Tokyo Electric Power Company... He worked in the plant’s Crisis Center, located on the second floor of the earthquake-resistant building, and recounted his story of what happened as the accident unfolded on March 11, 2011. He was promised anonymity as a condition of providing his account...."
