For a good baseline here is a conversion chart showing CPM and how long it would take exposed to those levels to cause harm:

Days compared with the avg. annual human exposure (U.S.)
207 (at 100 CPM)
42 (at 500 CPM)
14 (at 1,500 CPM)
2 (at 10,000 CPM)

Days to receive dose for increase cancer risk of 1 in a 1,000
432 (at 100 CPM)
86 (at 500 CPM)
28 (at 1,500 CPM)
4 (at 10,000 CPM)

Days for earliest onset of radiation sickness
25,937 (at 100 CPM)
5,187 (at 500 CPM)
1,729 (at 1,500 CPM)
259 (at 10,000 CPM)

So even with CPM at 300 in West TX (showing as radcon 4) it would take 144 days of constant exposure to increase your cancer risk to 1 in 1000.

The CPM is the danger level, not the radcon number which is the increase from normal.

God Bless,

Just found this on BBC news.

North American scientists track incoming Fukushima plume
The likely scale of the radioactive plume of water from Fukushima
due to hit the west coast of North America should be known in the next two months.

BBC news Link

they are saying the radiation will be low.
I bet it will, now that they have reprogrammed them all.

it looks to me that the radiation cloud will hit California in the next week.
Its a Big cloud! see link.
