"And for those of you on the west coast. They keep reporting "small amounts" of radiation reaching the US. The bulk of the radiation won't hit until Monday, so remain vigilant and stay safe."

My advice for you guys in California is - you better use this weekend wisely to buy supplies, tape up windows - or even better EVACUATE to the east coast. Do not believe your government. They do not want mass hysteria. Please guys, use this weekend wisely!! Stay safe, my thoughts are with you!! xxx

Taping windows is for bio/chem attacks. If the scenerio involved a large amount of radioactive particles falling from the sky the radiation would travel through the windows and walls themselves even tho the particles reamined outside. I remember reading somewere that you need about 3 feet of loose dirt or other materials to effectively block the radiation, or some sort of lead shielding. The danger isn't the particles themselves but rather the radiation emitted while the particles decay.
Western Europe didn't have many issues when Chernobyl blew, and the US/Canada west coast is a bit farther away from japan. Not to mention it has been raining off the west coast and forecast call for alot more rain. My concern will be the fish coming into the markets from the pacific, I hope the goverment takes this into consideration and starts testing the fish as they come in.

I think this is where that info is coming from...


As we have emphasized, the radiation now hitting the west coast is from the early leaks suffered by the Fukushima plant after the earthquake and tsunami last Friday, which actually occurred Thursday U.S. time. These leaks were minimal in comparison to the radiation emitted after explosions on Saturday, Monday and Tuesday tore apart the buildings housing the reactors.

In addition, the radiation currently being measured does not take into account radiation emitted by pools of deadly spent nuclear rods, which only began to emit serious amounts of radiation a few days ago.
Paul Josheph Watson
We will not know the true level of the threat until the radiation particles emitted as a result of the three explosions that devastated Fukushima hits the west coast over the weekend and into Monday. The fact that authorities have completely failed to point this out suggests they are actively trying to whitewash the threat that the fallout poses to Americans.

Calculated time for radioactive particles to cross the Pacific from the power plants in Japan to big West Coast cities if the particles take a direct path and move at a speed of 20 mph:

Cities
Est. Distance (miles)
Est. Time to Cross Pacific (days)

Anchorage
3,457
7

Honolulu
3,847
8

Seattle
4,792
10

Los Angeles
5,477
11

I don't exactly trust the MSM but I do not know this person either so it's up in the air. I'll look into it.

Ah I can just see the story now: hospitals from San Diego to Seattle were swamped with cases of acute iodine poisoning, Monday as unsubstantiated rumors spread of increased radiation. Great...

Taping your windows shut doesn't work. All iodine does is protect your thyroid gland against eventual development of thyroid cancer, nothing at all for anything else. It must also be remembered that iodine is in fact a poison, and downing tablets of the stuff like a schoolboy downs tic-tacs on his first date, well that will kill you too.

Other members here have rightly pointed out the danger to pacific sea life and the safety of seafood. This must be checked, and monitored to be sure, but it should also be noted that oceans can soak a lot of rads before there is a problem. The US and France nuked the hell out of the South Pacific in the Cold War, nobody seems to remember that these days though...

Now if you truly are concerned about your radiation exposure, may I suggest that you buy a dosemeter, instead of doing something idiotic. On top of this with your handy dosemeter, you can report any radiation level changes you experience to your buddies here on ATS. Just please, don't think that something like a 0.0002msv change means the world is ending, it's probably just the sun coming out from behind a cloud.

but again you still have to consider there is no way of saying WHAT the bulk of the radiation means. You don't know how much it's going to get decayed and dispersed as it passes. And also, on the other hand how cay we say that the bulk of it is coming when the situation has yet to come to an end?

So you started a new thread, to post the words of another user, he posted in another thread ?
This is why this place turns into a mess. While informative, there was really no need to take a quote from another user, in another thread, and start a new thread with it.
Could you imagine if members started new threads with the words of others from ongoing threads.

This could have been continued in the current thread from which the original quote originated from

Yes true. Guys, I'm so frightened. So this could get even worse?? This is not good. WHO BUILDS GOD DAMN NUKES IN A TINY ISLAND ON AN EARTHQUAKE ZONE.

The original thread already did that.
Could have continued there.

Too many are too excited over what is happening and going crazy with posting.
Not paying attention to what is already being posted. Not reading threads and posting the same information over and over.
People need to slow down and relax for a minute and pay attention.

Couldn't have said it better myself. I read something on accu weather's website and wanted people to know that just because the levels are low, what is reaching us may not be the bulk so stay vigilant. I can't predict the future so it's impossible for me or anyone else to say when or how much.
