REDDING, Calif. -- Small levels of radiation from Japan were detected by a federal radiation monitor in Sacramento Friday morning - the first sign that radiation from the country's unstable Fukushima plant has reached the U.S.

The U.S. Government has an extensive network of radiation monitors around the county, including systems operated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy.

One of these monitoring stations in Sacramento detected miniscule quantities of the radioactive isotope xenon-133. The origin was determined to be consistent with a release from the Fukushima reactors. The levels detected were approximately 0.1 disintegrations per second per cubic meter of air (0.1 Bq/m3), which is roughly about one-millionth the dose rate a person normally receives from rocks, bricks, sun and other natural background resources.

Xenon-133 is a radioactive noble gas produced during nuclear fission that poses no concern at the detected level.

The EPA & DOE released a joint statement Friday stating that no radiation levels of concern have been detected in any part of the detection network. This type of reading is consistent with expectations following the tragedy in Japan and is expected to continue in the coming days.

Yeah, for the time being we might be safer on the east coast, but remember that NYC is within 50 miles of Indian Point Nuclear Plant in Montrose, NY.

I've now read the article that you posted and it is frightening especially since hearing today's news that Japan's emmissions are at Chernobyl levels.

And the evacuation plan in the USA is only required to be for a 10 mile radius.
