[1] The Brookhaven studies of the mid s showed that a meltdown ‘maximum credible accident’ would prod deaths, 73, injuries, and $17 billion in property damage in the near term. Extremely toxic and deadly radioactive byproducts would continue to contaminate tens of thousands of square miles for hundreds of years.

The "maximum credible accident is considered to be the 2a flooding accident, which adds reactivity to the system. Nearly all fuel elements are melted and about 1/4 is vaporized releasing fission products and explosion.
