A short spike in radiation.

Russian pharmacies report rise in sales of iodine near site of mysterious military explosion
Civilians of two northern Russian cities flocked to pharmacies Friday to purchase large quantities of iodine after a mysterious explosion at a nearby military testing site Thursday.
Data cited by Greenpeace from Russia’s Ministry of Emergency Situations showed radiation levels rose 20 times above the normal level in the city, about 18 miles from the testing site.
MOSCOW — The Russian authorities on Tuesday announced the evacuation of the village nearest to the site of a nuclear accident in northern Russia, suggesting dangers more grave than initially reported. The still-mysterious episode last week killed seven people and released radiation, apparently when a small nuclear reactor malfunctioned during a test of a novel type of missile near a naval weapons testing site. Russian officials have released a flurry of misleading or incomplete statements playing down the severity of the accident, which the military first reported on Thursday as a fire involving a liquid-fueled rocket engine.
Russian military orders village evacuation, then cancels it
Radiation levels near the site of a deadly rocket explosion in Russia's far north spiked 16 times above normal, Russia's weather service has said. Rosgidromet measured radiation levels in the port city of Severodvinsk after the blast. The explosion happened off the coast of the city at a military facility in the White Sea last Thursday. Russia's state nuclear agency, Rosatom, said a nuclear-powered engine was being tested.
