ALERT: 156 Millisieverts Per Year Radiation In Saint Loius – Levels 178 Times Background

1) The Conversion:

1 millirem = 10 microsieverts Google Calculator
1.786 millirem per hour= 17.86 microsieverts per hour — Google Calculator
(17.86 * 24 *365) microsieverts per hour = 156.4536 millisieverts per year — Google Calculator

2) Even Japan in the face of the Fukushima nuclear fallout has only “officially” raised their temporary safety limit to 20 millisieverts per year.

The New York Times reports:

The government was apparently forced to alter its plans after the survey by the Ministry of Science and Education, released over the weekend, which showed even higher than expected radiation levels within the 12-mile evacuation zone around the plant. The most heavily contaminated spot was in the town of Okuma about two miles southwest of the plant, where someone living for a year would be exposed to 508.1 millisieverts of radiation — far above the level of 20 millesieverts per year that the government considers safe.

3) The Reading

This YouTube videos shows a Geiger counter reading extremely unsafe levels of radiation, at 1.786 milliRems per hour, which is far beyond what is considered safe, even for nuclear power plant works and even for Japanese safety limits.

The video was reportedly recorded at 10:20 in the morning on August 20th, while driving along a four mile stretch of highway in Saint Louis Missouri.

ALERT!!! 178 X Background Radiation in Saint Louis Rain

STAY OUT OF THE RAIN!

This data may be indicative of a RECENT SIGNIFICANT radiological event in Fukushima.

The reading was taken at approximately 10:20am on 8/20/11 in Saint Louis Missouri from a vehicle that had driven approximately 4 miles through the trailing edges of a thunderstorm.

The sample returned a reading of 1.786 mR/hr, which equates to ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY EIGHT times greater than normal background radiation. This reading is almost 3 times greater than the previous high reading of 62x background radiation.
