June 2011 – Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant Monitoring for Japan Nuclear Accident, via Enformable:

Highest detection of iodine-131 was March 20, 2011 @ 5.07e-12 microcuries/cubic centimeter -Source

5.07e-12 microcuries/cubic centimeter = 0.00507 picocuries/liter (Conversion Tool)

0.00507 picocuries/liter divided by 27 picocuries per Becquerel = 0.000188 Bq/liter of iodine-131

UCB Air Sampling Results | The Nuclear Engineering Department At UC Berkeley:

Highest detection of iodine-131 was March 23, 2011 @ 4.3e-06 Bq/liter (0.0000043 Bq/liter of iodine-131) -Source

The Diablo Canyon iodine-131 peak was 0.000188 Bq/liter of iodine-131, or 43.7 times higher than the 0.0000043 Bq/liter peak observed by UC Berkeley.
