This is third incident after Three Mile Island in the US in 1979, and Chernobyl in Ukraine in 1986. Definitely this accident will goes to history of Nuclear accident and even for industrial accident.

Due to safety procedures of nuclear power plant it was automatically shutdown after earth quake hits Fukushima. But one of cooling system of reactor was damaged and did not worked accordingly after the shutdown. This tends to meltdown one of reactor.
