It’s getting worse all the time, folks.
First, a new record of all-beta radiation was measured on Nov. 25 at Fukushima:
The 26th, TEPCO announced from observation wells located on the sea side of the 1-4 Unit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, radioactive materials that emit beta radiation, such as strontium-90 has been 910 000 becquerels detected per liter. Was taken in the 25th, I went up from 750,000 becquerels of collecting the 21st. In the well of the primary sea side, in excess of the 900,000 becquerels, which is detected in early July in another well, it was a record high.
Very high readings were also measured in a trench on the sea side of Unit 2.
In The US, very high readings from rain were measured in Arkansas on Nov. 22. This is near the record high for this observer. This looks to be at least 18 times background. (Radiation in rain typically never exceeds 2-3 times background in high radon areas.)
Michael Collins from EnviroReporter.com measured 31.5x background in rain at Death Valley, California on Nov. 23:
Milwaukee, Wisconsin had radiation in rain at 30x background on Nov. 17:
This report from Sierraville, California, is hard to make out as to the units used, but it appears to be 120x background… and it is from AIR, not rain:
Here we see the black substance on mutated apples in Michigan, which apparently came from rain:
And iodine-131 in Chiba prefecture, Japan has started to rise again, after it peaked in late August and September. The last reading is actually from Nov. 6:
