5. Just a note on clarity, fwiw - The TMI Level 5 was in Category "Radiological Barriers and Control"

not "Impact on People and Environment".

IAEA's definition for "Barriers and Control" reads - covers events without any direct impact on people or the environment and only applies inside major facilities. It covers unplanned high radiation levels and spread of significant quantities of radioactive material confined within the installation.

I don't mean to minimize anything, but with the varying array of reports making the internet rounds, I feel it's important that info be as accurate as possible. The blogger in this instance just got it wrong. ~ pinto
