According to radiationnetwork.com, the United States’ radiation monitoring network, South Bend, Indiana experienced extremely high levels of radiation Friday night — up to 100 times higher than safe levesl.
Last night, live records for a radiation monitoring station near the border of Indiana and Michigan showed radiation levels as high as 7,139 counts per minute (CPM). At 1:55 a.m., Eastern time, the radiation level was at 2,558 CPM. The level varied between 2,000 CPM and 7,000 CPM for several hours.
Normal radiation levels are between 5 and 60 CPM, and any readings above 100 CPM should be considered unusual and trigger an alert, according to information listed on the Radiation Network website.
The online geiger counter monitoring network operated by Black Cat Systems also reported unusually high radiation levels in the same region.
The location of the incident, near the borders of Indiana and Michigan, is reportedly owned by the Department of Defense.
“MineraLab owner Tim Flanegin says the readings appeared to be caused by an equipment malfunction.
WSBT says it received about a dozen calls or emails from residents concerned about the readings.
Officials at the Environmental Protection Agency and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission told the station that their radiation readings were normal.” [x]
