It will not be as bad as chernoyble, period. Measures have long since been put into place at nuclear plants to prevent disasters from happening.
WHat happened in short (without explaining how nuclear power works lol), is the generators that run the pumps that provide coolant to the reactors core (uranium rods) got destroyed and couldn't pump coolant water in. There is a safety seawater flooding system that was deployed but the built up pressure caused hydrogen explosions that released radioactive material (basically reactor 3 blew the f up) . The fuel rods are constantly hot, and at this point there is no effective way of cooling them and, so the situation is still dangerous.
I highly doubt there will be a full meltdown, engineers will figure out something by the time that happens.
