I live in Alberta and I've had a radiation detector for years (work- don't ask). I've been watching lately and I can say that there has been ZERO
increase in the number of counts per minute anywhere around my office or home. Those sites all give different readings, one of the ones I looked at is
giving it in "counts per minute" that's litteraly the # of particles to impact the detector in a minute. I can get readings of 200 counts per
minute if I put he detector right beside a smoke detector (they have cessium in them) or if I point the detecter at certain other man made objects
around the office. Those detectors make no diference between short life particles and long life particles (which are the dangerous ones).
Even assuming that those screen shots are not faked (and I suspect they are) a brief surge is typical when something happens near the detector. Before
you get panic-y you should look at the refresh rate for the sending detectors and look at the where they are. Are they near a construction site?
Radiography is used to check welds and it creates short term radiation.
