Does anyone have this info or know how to obtain readings? I searched the internet and everything I found was close to a month old and it was trace amounts. I live in upstate NY and I'm concerned due to the reactor still leaking, the government isn't telling us anything.

Hi Jeremiah,

I am currently in CNY. There are a couple sites for this but I would trust anything I'm told these days. I wish I had my own counter. Here are the sites.

www.radiationnetwork.com...
www.blackcatsystems.com...

Remember there is all-ways background radiation in our environment. Also I have not noticed any appreciable spikes.

Good question, S and F,
But I think the better question is what are the levels in California.
We are gonna be using a Geiger counter in my physics class in a week or two. I'll check what the levels are then. I live in the Midwest btw. I don't really wanna see what the levels are at if another big one hits. I think it's gonna happen tho. I read in the news today that they're expecting aftershocks for the next 5 years. I kid you not. It was either the USA today or NY times. I read them both today, usually its just one or the other.

Geiger counters are only like 20 bucks.
You're probably safe in NY though. It still wouldn't hurt to have a counter around though. Ya never know.

Thanks for those links, I checked them out and it seems to be okay for now if it can be trusted.

Thanks for the links.

Maybe the two sites are calibrating their readers differently, and that may be why the numbers don't jive from one site to the next?

One says 18 where I am in Oregon. The other says 13.
Both of these numbers are higher than the ones in Japan; according to the data collected upon refreshing the page(s).

Tom Bodett might leave the lights on for ya...While the boogerment will pee down your leg and tell you its raining.

If they can't fix this thing then I'm definitely going to buy one, I mean a constant release of radiation into the ocean and atmosphere can't be good for anyone no matter where you're living.

I've been using this site to track it
www.woweather.com...
It kinda looks pretty, and I don't know exactly what the levels mean, but that blue layer that just hit California can't be good.

I used a Geiger counter last year. Baseline was like 2-5 if I remember correctly.
Thinking about it more, it was probably only 1-3.
It's gonna be different in different places though. And I'm in the middle of nowhere.

That first link is BS. Click on the japan link and look at the readings.
Who knows, maybe it is correct?

Are your friends panicked by media coverage of the event? Share this page so they can see things are currently normal. You can scroll and zoom around the map.
.

How is a reading that is four times above normal considered normal?

This BS is unconscionable.

Did I hear correctly today that yet another reactor in Japan is having problems now??

Levels seem to vary even in close areas, but findings are consistent all over the US, some being higher on the East Coast.
Twos sites where findings have been posted:
www.epa.gov...

&

www.radiationnetwork.com...

Of course you know that you absorb more radiation walking out to your mailbox in the sun than you will get from anything over in Japan don't you. Of course you do. I'm sure you just want to measure this as part of a school project or something hehe
