DATA FOR MOST CITIES AVAILABLE HERE
REMINDER: 3X Background is a health concern so anything 180 and up is not good. The levels posted here increase risks for cancer and cardio-vascular diseases, among other ailments, but will not produce radiation sickness.
Children, immune-compromised individuals, and the elderly are at greatest risk from the long term effects of elevated radiation levels.
Southern California has recently been quite high. Check out San Diego, which just came down from a peak of 300 betahttp://blog.alexanderhiggins.com/net2/San%20Diego-CA-Real-Time-US-Radiation-Monitoring-Graph.aspx
San Diego's peak is mirrored at slightly lower levels in southern California (e.g., L.A.) and AZ, though it appears that considerable fallout is occurring in Yuma, sparing Phoenix and Tucson. And it looks like levels for Yuma are not being posted regularly, probably because they run so high
Ft. Smith AR has also been running quite high with peaks around 300 beta, although it appears to be dropping now
Indianapolis continues to run high at around 250 beta
Des Moines IA continues to run very high spikes, at 500 beta, although it appears to be on the downside at the moment at about 150 beta
Raleigh NC is about 200 beta
Reno NV has a big spike at over 250 beta and Las Vegas isn't reporting
Rapid City SD is on the way up again, presently at around 150 beta but it looks as if it could go up further, spikes in July were up to 600 beta
Amarillo TX remains high at 250 beta, but is nowhere near its reported high Aug 12 of around 700 beta
It looks like Lubbock TX decided to deal with the problem of radiation highs but not reporting any data at all
Harrisonburg VA is high again at just under 300 beta, but not up near its late July high of almost 800 beta
THESE LEVELS ARE NOT NORMAL AND ARE IN FACT DANGEROUS IF SUSTAINED
