"We believe that secondary containment has been destroyed and there is no water in the spent fuel pool and we believe that radiation levels are extremely high which could possibly impact the ability to take corrective measures."

You must have missed last nights readings??? 230 - 240 in Bakersfield CA moving SE........The readings were verified from both radiation detection sites....
While some radiation may be detected in the United States as a result of the nuclear reactor accident in Japan, current estimates indicate radiation levels will not be harmful to the thyroid gland or general health. If radiation levels did warrant the use of KI, the statement recommends it should be taken as directed by physicians or public health authorities until the risk for significant exposure dissipates.

Radiation levels still low and safe in North America.
I understand due to the radiation NOT being high enough elevation to reach the jetstream that it will take a few more days for it to reach the West Coast of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
Depending on who you listen to the radiation will likely pose no risk to the citizens in these places. However, a 12-year study of Chernobyl says roughly a million people were significantly affected by the radiation from Chernobyl with hundreds of thousands dying. (my source is just a friend of mine who's very into this subject, so take it as you like or go look it up.)
by the way, Denver was at 76 (northern spot) and 28 (lower spot) this morning when I checked, all others lower than normal 8-20 or so.
