# Leaking Japanese Nuclear Complex Owner: Radiation May End Up Exceeding Chernobyl

Tepco is finally admitting what has been obvious for some time: that Fukushima could end up being worse than Chernobyl.

As Reuters notes:

The operator of Japan’s crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant said on Tuesday that they are concerned that the radiation leakage could eventually exceed that of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

“The radiation leak has not stopped completely and our concern is that it could eventually exceed Chernobyl,” an official from operator Tokyo Electric and Power told reporters on Tuesday.
