ALERT: Over 1000 CPM Radioactivity Reported In Charleston, SC



There has been a report of a radioactive swipe reading exceeding 1000 counts per minute taken in Charleston, Sc. Hopefully the person taking the data will have further updates available.
See the initial report here.

This report has triggered an ALERT because we believe it indicates higher levels of radioactivity in the upper atmosphere. We plan to have an updated analysis this evening. Updated with video.

STAY OUT OF THE RAIN!

  1. if this was fallout from Fukusima, it makes some sense on timing, rads began rising in Fukushima prefecture on or before 24 July as reported by Japanese citizens posted at my blog http://nowarnow.wordpress.com/2012/07/23/radiation-rising-fukushima-prefcity-24-july-2012/ it's gone up since that post, reaching 4.23 uSv/h the day after.

  3. I'm very sorry I didn't find the webpage before now. I'm the guy who did the initial report. I've since gotten similar readings in rainstorms across the month, some as low as 600 cpm, others as high as 1700 cpm.

    But, the radiation doesn't last. It rapidly tapers off to nothing in about 6 hours. That's what's confusing. If the radiation were Fuku based, why does it only last 6 hours? I've see the similar tapered readings on your blog. Last night, August 19, the reading after a light rainstorm was 900 cpm. This morning, the dry towel had no reading at all. Noone here has an answer as to "Why?" Did the nuclieds evaporate with the water? It can't be particulate, or it would still be active on the towel. All my towels go dead in about 6 hours.

    I'll try to keep up with this thread, now that I found it.
