26 TIMES Background Radiation In 6:30am Rain Fall

A sample swipe taken from the hood of the truck at 6:30am returned a reading of 26 times greater than background radiation. The reading follows approximately 20 hours of light to moderate rain fall. Typically, fallout levels in the rain tend to increase on the backside of any rain events. The position of the jet stream remains nearly overhead; we therefore expect levels of radiation to increase somewhat as the rain lingers. Rain samples taken yesterday from the same system returned readings of 10X and 13X greater than background radiation at approximately 3 hours and 5 hours into the rain event.
