> Days after global nuke experts declare Fukushima Serious Business, Japan raises disaster level to 5
> Japan's nuclear safety agency (NISA) today raised the level of the crisis at the Fukushima nuclear plant from level 4 (local consequences) to level 5 (wider consequences, same level as Three Mile Island), on the 7-point scale* created by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
> NISA's assessment was declared retroactive to Tuesday.
