True but thus far I've not heard of the kind of fallout levels remotely seen form Chernobyl. These reactors are still inside containment facilities, even if cracked and leaking. Chernobyl was blown totally open and the building above destroyed. The reactor shot straight out into the sky, so high people fishing nearby saw a huge blue flame coming out.
I'm old enough to remember it. We had fallout raining down on us in Denver that was measurable at higher levels than what we've gotten from F-uk-ushima. My older sister complained of her eyes burning.
