As of early July 2012, Daini had radiation levels 16 to 33X what they were pre-3/1, they were lower inside the plant than outside.

This article in The Wall Street Journal expressed concern about how Fukushima Daiichi's radiation levels were causing Daini's to rise:

July 4, 2012, Fukushima Watch: At Fukushima Daini, It’s Safer Inside Than Outside By Mitsuru Obe. Wall Street Journal

[excerpted "At the Fukushima Daini nuclear power plant, it may be safer inside the reactor buildings than it is outside them. JRT, which went on a media tour of Daini on Wednesday, found that background radiation levels in the plant compound were around 0.5 to 1.0 microsieverts per hour — some 16 to 33 times higher than prior to the March 2011 accident... http://blogs.wsj.com/japanrealtime/2012/07/04/fukushima-watch-at-fukushima-daini-its-safer-inside-than-outside/
