It's a higher Level 5 than TMI because the primary containment vessel at one Fukushima plant may have been breached, and the spent fuel pools outside of primary containment have already released some radiation into the environment. Neither of these things happened at TMI, where radiation release was controlled and intended to avert explosion of the hydrogen bubble.
