The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear accident that occurred on 26 April 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukrainian SSR (now Ukraine). It is considered the worst nuclear power plant accident in history, and it is the only one classified as a level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale.
Four hundred times more radioactive material was released than had been by the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. However, compared to the total amount released by nuclear weapons testing during the 1950s and 1960s, the Chernobyl disaster released 1/100 to 1/1000 the radioactivity.

I agree radiation from Japan is not much of a threat to us. However we definitely should prepare, and this tragedy is a good reminder to do so. With all the earthquake activity around the world, volcanoes and weather etc,. going on, we have nuclear plants also and this could happen somewhere closer to home to any one of us. So take this as a que to get prepared!
