in Science 6 Comments Tags: , , ,

Japanese authorities have raised the level of danger at a nuclear power plant “Fukushima-1” to the maximum value a level 7 on the International Nuclear Event Scale (INES). Until now, it is assigned only to the Chernobyl accident in 1986. Japanese earthquake and tsunami led to the death or disappearance of nearly 28 thousand people. At the same time in the ocean east from the Japanese coast recorded a new earthquake, whose force amounted to 6.3 points. This is the second earthquake in the last two days,оn Monday, a 7.1-magnitude quake hit north-east Japan, leaving three people dead.

According to a representative of the Japanese Nuclear Safety Commission level was raised to the seventh,  because the effects of radiation leaks were  recorded in air, vegetables, tap water and the ocean. But leaks to the “Fukushima” there can not be compared with Chernobyl, because volume of released radioactive materials is about 10% of what was released by Chernobyl.
