Radiation Alerts Hit U.S. Cities
Well this certainly doesn’t look good.
Check it out:
A private organization that monitors radiation data from network points across the United States issued email alerts today for two Western U.S. cities, Reno, Nev., and St. George, Utah.
The alerts came from the the Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center, which explains its mission is to provide radiation monitoring information from hundreds of sites in Japan and the U.S., including those run by the Environmental Protection Agency.
The warning pinpointed an area “of concern” in St. George, Utah, where background radiation levels more than doubled today from the typical reading.
In Reno, “the current background radiation level has increased suddenly by more than 200 points from the typical average.”
The report said the “counts per minute” at St. George reach an all-time high of 456, while the average is 222 with a normal deviation of 55.
