TOKYO - The Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO), the operator of the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, said Tuesday that it is concerned that radiation leakage at the plant could eventually exceed that of the 1986 Chernobyl catastrophe, Kyodo reported on Tuesday.
Japan on Tuesday morning raised the severity level of the accident at the plant to the maximum 7 on an international scale, up from the current 5 and matching that of the Chernobyl disaster in the former Soviet republic of Ukraine.
