Major Accident Rating 7 declared for Fukushima Dai-ichi
nuclear disaster equals to Chernobyl nuclear disaster

Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency on Tuesday upgraded the severity level in the country's ongoing nuclear crisis from an international scale level 5 to a level 7, matching 1986's Chernobyl crisis.

According to the International Nuclear Event Scale, the release of over tens of thousands of terabecquerels of radioactive iodine 131 corresponds to a level 7 accident.
One terabecquerel equals 1 trillion Becquerels,
The plant's No. 1 to No. 3 nuclear reactors is estimated to have released between 370,000 and 630,000 terabecquerels of radioactive materials into the environment.

What is Chernobyl disaster?
In Chernobyl, in the Ukraine, a reactor exploded on April 26, 1986

A zone about 19 miles (30 kilometers) around the plant was declared uninhabitable

Chernobyl nuclear disaster affected Ukraine and neighboring Belarus, as well as parts of Russia and Europe.

The Chernobyl Union of Ukraine, a non-government body, estimates the present death toll from the disaster at almost 734,000.

Chernobyl engineers shut down the last functioning reactor, Number Three, in December 2000. Radioactive nuclear fuel is still being removed from the plant.

Ukraine will need more than $ 840 million to dismantle completely old reactors.

It will take more than 100 Years before the station is completely decommissioned.
