-Radiationnetwork.com. Which is where that video was from. I was following it this event until 4 am when it happened checking for updates on it.
The alert level reading last evening appears to be a false alert from an equipment malfunction. Here is the station's report: "out of control readings on the GeigerGraph screen from about 11:30pm local time that occurred while sleeping. My apologies to all. I have no idea what caused this. Shut down GeigerGraph and restarted. Readings from the Geiger were in the normal range (the Geiger operates on A/C). All cable connections are tight and not loose. Am speculating between the GFI and USB Adapter and some sort of voltage spikes. The uninterruptable power supply UPS had lost power and had died - a tripped GFI. I am not going to leave the system running while not at home until I can determine and fix the problem." By the way, a handful of stations on the Radiation Network feed simultaneously to the Black Cat Systems network, which explains why a high reading was showing on their network at the same time. But Black Cat works in uR/hr instead of CPM, so their radiation level was lower because of the conversion factor between units of measurement.

Yes i was a bit suspicious about that incident. But i dont think the helicopter would need a direct line to the raf they would use air traffic controll to arrange help

In my opinion, the only explanations for these explosions are either underground blasting (plausible for a state with a mining history - possibly the home of another underground facility making use of existing sites?) or sonic booms.
If I were there I would probably start to look at maps and try to work out where an underground entrance is likely to be positioned and go take a look. Have any old mining sites been bought by the state in the last ten years? Maybe there's an area where a new front company is operating a mining interest?
The only part of that which doesn't make sense is that there are reportedly no indications of quakes in the area, which is strange considering residents state that they felt the earth shake. That tells me there is a cover-up going on with that data, which leads me to think the underground blasting is more likely.
