.- The Nuclear Security Agency decided today to raise the severity of the Fukushima nuclear accident 5 A maximum of 7, which equates to the one in Chernobyl in 1986. The agency said that the reactors from the tsunami damaged the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station have been releasing massive amounts of radioactive substances into the air, posing a risk to human health and the environment of the area.

The increased severity of the accident at the international level (NIES) is based on provisional estimates of the Japanese nuclear agency. Previously, Japanese authorities had classified the severity of the Fukushima nuclear accident as grade 5. Level 0 indicates that there is no anomaly, and 7, most importantly, represents a major accident.
