I actually live in the mid-west U.S., so if there were a nuclear site close to those, that could be a source of the anomaly. But even if that was the case, the readings if correct are not safe levels of radiation at all. Any others from the area have any insight?

I dont think so, its going in a wave. Those figures were much lower yesterday. I clicked on all the dots.

Interesting radnet never gives 23 for Seattle, its always around 13 or less. The highest the other one gave for Vancouver was 23 in a wave that climbed up. So its climbing up a bit near us.

Since the official US radiation site is experiencing some problems, (cdxnode64.epa.gov...) I would strongly suggest you take a long hard look at this live streaming site using live streaming technology. It is based in Driggs Idaho using a Ludlum model 177 that is exposed to direct wind. What is concerning is that you can watch the CPM go from around 80 CPM to 140 CPM as the winds wax and wane. This is scary stuff indeed.

(visit the link for the full news article)


The EPA site is working fine, but your link isn't and it says 179CPM in Idaho Falls right now. I don't like that at all, but I don't think it has anything to do with Japan. I'm going to call my sister, she lives over there. Really not good, unless I'm reading the results incorrectly.
Use this link cdxnode64.epa.gov...

Yes the nuclear site upwind of Idaho Falls is enormous.
Approximate location is +43.567531,-112.936764 but it covers a huge area east of Craters of the Moon natl monument and south of Lost River Range and east almost all the way to the Lemhi Range. It is a nuclear freakshow out there, frogs with 5th legs, etc.
I had no idea how high the radiation is in Idaho Falls or Driggs normally, but these are not healthy levels, eek!

I have lots of family out there, Dad, sister, uncles and cousins. *gasp*
I sure hope I'm reading this wrong, or the equipment is out of whack, or perhaps INL had a little accident? Shoot, I don't know but this is unnerving.

But how are California and Washington's numbers. Assuming they are giving honest readings, the first place to show any sort of rise in values should be the coast...
right?

Holy s&*t!!! I checked the major working sites, (dark blue), this AM and did not see these high CPM's. This is serious and it seems to be escalating quickly now. We are also due for a storm to be entering the west shortly and wonder what those ill winds will bring. Good catch, stay vigilant.

From everything I have read, yes, but I also read the East side of the Coastal and Cascade Ranges would get heavier amounts. Are the numbers on the coast being suppressed or are we all acting like reactionary ninnies because we can't read the results right?

Where's TheRedneck when you need him?

Yes defense, I think this is an important topic
partially to see what might be the dangers to the west-central usa

but alos if there are numbers here, it would help us get a better idea of the extent of the japan situation,
the radiation levels in the usa will tell more just how bad things actually were/are in japan- and of course this would just be radiation coming from last weekend

so yes. lets not be "ninnies" about it, lets be carefully observent and open.

While doing research I discovered that San Francisco had 650CPM, 350CPM, and a 250CPM spikes back on MARCH 2nd before the earthquake. EPA SanFran Graph

RadNet Air Monitoring Data from the U.S. West Coast

What could have been the cause of that??

Interesting. This leads me to believe that we are merely reading the numbers incorrectly. I sure hope that is it.

Sorry for such a noob question, but can someone please explain why the ustream cpm is at about 50, but the cdxnode64 cpm says 190? I'm confused.

I just read from that map: Fixed Monitor Location: CO: COLORADO SPRINGS
Measurement Start Date/Time: 03/19/2011 10:02:27 AM
Measurement End Date/Time: 03/19/2011 11:02:35 AM
Beta Gross Count Rate (CPM): 236

And surrounding areas are in the 50+

236 seems dangerously high!

Could you post a link to the Ustream you are referring to? The link in the original post is not working for me, I did a search from Driggs and found the channel, but nothing is online, for me at least, what browser are you using? I'm on firefox 3.6.whatever.

Wasn't when I was reading good to know it's confirmed then... eek.

I keep monitoring your readings, we're getting waves that go up to 25, which while low is way above normal. Anyway, the cloud seems to be falling at Tuscon. Last reading I took was 150, still way too high. So, I think it will fall there too, which won't probably be great news for Canada.
