From the article:

NISA estimates that the amount of radioactive material released to the atmosphere is approximately 10 percent of the 1986 Chernobyl accident, which is the only other nuclear accident to have been rated a Level 7 event.

At this point, it is 10% of Chernobyl, but there are six reactors and quite a bit of fuel. It is under control for the moment; however, the area is being hit with fairly large aftershocks still (6.2 off Tokyo tonight).
