According to the Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, the radiation reached around 1,000 times the normal level in the control room of the No. 1 reactor of the Fukushima nuclear power plant.

The government declared its first-ever state of emergency at a nuclear plant. The radiation surge followed Japan’s massive earthquake, which caused a power outage that disabled a nuclear reactor’s cooling system, triggering the evacuation of about 3,000 residents near the site.  Hours after the evacuation order, the government announced that the plant will release slightly radioactive vapor from the unit to lower the pressure in an effort to protect it from a possible meltdown.
