Radiation is streaming into the atmosphere from the used uranium rods at reactor number four, after a 45ft-deep storage pool designed to keep them
stable boiled dry in a fire.
And some of the radioactive material could reach Britain within a fortnight, according to experts.
However they say it will not be dangerous when it reaches our shores while low levels of radiation have already hit Southern California.
I'm in Northern California, so I'm thinking if low levels of radiation are in southern cali...thats not good. Do i seriously need to get a geiger
counter? what is the danger level here? But gee man, I feel bad for the Japanese right now.

Have you seen the national map with radiation counts, the lime green one?
Nationwide, it looks like there are 11 Geiger counters, total, and it updates every few hours or so. I question this site because initially ( a few
days ago ) they had a different number for 'risk' level, having it at 130 cpm. Now it reads 100 CPM, but the updates are much farther apart than they
were when two days ago. One time, a Geiger site somewhere in Indiana said 78 CPM. I'd say, therefore, that the government must have traded all their
Geiger devices for body scanners.
The authorities need our help.
If you go out, don't bring any unlawful contraband such as plant matter, or cigarettes, and check ahead to see if any checkpoints are being set up to
check all traffic, for signs of inebriation, improper seatbelt use, to inspect your trunk and undercarriage, or for bad attitudes. They might run a
title check to make sure the vehicle was not stolen, especially if you ride a bike. Since you drew attention to yourself by landing at a roadblock,
I'd guess they'll want to do a hands on check of the contents of your e-devices, especially if you answer the authorities that you are going out for
some Geiger counters, and a snack. (we elected czars who gave obama the power to scan your e devices from a central locale, but they may want the most
recent communications which may not be on the government database). Be polite and calm when answering where you were, where you are going, and the
purpose for each of your stops. They really dislike it when you mix up your story and answer differently than when they asked you the first time.
Depending on your body language, they may scan you for diseases.
Best to check tobacco laws, if you plan to smoke or to carry tobacco. You don't want to get held up outside at this time. But if you can get your
hands on a Geiger counter, risking travel may be worth the trouble. There are only 11 devices reporting, on the whole continent.
