Record radiation levels have been reported at reactor number 1 of the crippled Japanese nuclear power plant Fukushima Daiichi, amounting to 10.3 sieverts per hour.

Wikipedia: Doses greater than 1 sievert received over a short time period are likely to cause radiation poisoning, possibly leading to death within weeks.
