6pm Tornado Warnings, Radioactive At 12x Background Radiation

In the midsts of several tornado warnings in the area, we took a paper towel swipe sample from our SUV at approximatly 6pm. That sample returned a reading of 12x over background radiation. The reading was a bit higher than we expected / hoped for from a tropical depression, but Tornadoes still do have a way of accessing higher altitude fallout. We don't know if that is the case for this reading, as 12x is still a low reading post Fukushima.
